So, there is this shopping district called The Plaza in Kansas City. They have some really cool architecture and such, so I decided to go take some pictures with my new Sony A-200 icon_biggrin.gif DSLR.


Here you go! Let me know how they look, I haven't touched them yet so I bet they may need some color correction or something.

EDIT: Fixed Links (lol!)

Seems a bit random, no real subject or background of particular interest.

QUOTE (Dohregard @ Jan 18 2009, 03:15 AM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>


Can't really tell what you're photographing, it's also out of focus.

QUOTE (Dohregard @ Jan 18 2009, 03:15 AM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>


Streetlight distracts, underexposed, kind of a snapshot.

QUOTE (Dohregard @ Jan 18 2009, 03:15 AM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>


OVEREXPOSED.

QUOTE (Dohregard @ Jan 18 2009, 03:15 AM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>


Overexposed, the composition doesn't pay attention to either the girl or the stairs. Makes it boring that way.

QUOTE (Dohregard @ Jan 18 2009, 03:15 AM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>


Once again overexposed, with notable noise on the statue, are you shooting at high ISO in broad daylight? Composition is once again way off, no real subject.

QUOTE (Dohregard @ Jan 18 2009, 03:15 AM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>


focus is messed up, this once is sort of semi-arty, but not in focus at all. A tighter aperture would've really helped as well.

QUOTE (Dohregard @ Jan 18 2009, 03:15 AM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>


Not level with the horizon, both the potential subject up close and afar are not in focus.

QUOTE (Dohregard @ Jan 18 2009, 03:15 AM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>


Now this one I almost like. It's just way underexposed. The angle is good though.

QUOTE (Dohregard @ Jan 18 2009, 03:15 AM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>


This one is kind of okay as well, the subject is fully in focus, but you 'cut off' the top and bottom.

QUOTE (Dohregard @ Jan 18 2009, 03:15 AM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>


Trees in the way, also photographing right up against the sun = bad.

QUOTE (Dohregard @ Jan 18 2009, 03:15 AM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>


No real subject..

QUOTE (Dohregard @ Jan 18 2009, 03:15 AM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>


Poor angle, could've been way better and less snapshottish. Also off focus, the girls in the background are sharp..

Yu also messed your links up.. the ones in my quotes are fixed.

This is exactly what has been going on through the entire thread, and it's not the first time either.
You come to us for advice..you just spell out what you want to get, and then ask us if it is okay, and we have to explain why it isn't. That's the world upside down.. If you would just say 'hey guys, I have an X amount of money, what should I buy?' Then this would be over in 2-3 posts, not 2-3 pages.

Every time someone goes against Weiman's sig I feel like they should be bludgeoned for a few minutes in the head to feel the headache I feel when I realize someone really IS that dense.

Some of your criticism is rather strange. I'm not a photographer, but i think to to criticise his images on the basis that they do not have something as a subject is rather naive.
For example
http://i41.tinypic.com/6z6k60.jpg
I find interesting just through the shape of the railing and the way the shadows fall.

That might be, but a photo, in my opinion, should be good as a whole. What you should try to do is bring your audience's attention to whatever is special in a picture. This can be a subject, or simply an overview. This picture however doesn't really do any of those. Neither composition, focus or lighting really attribute to highlighting the way those shadows fall.. Sorry for explaining it so briefly, but to me, simply a 'snapshot' which happens to have something cool in it doesn't do much.

edit: I realise I might be coming across very critical, and I guess I just have a bit of a high bar as to what a good photo is.. it's only natural to be taking photo's like this when you're just starting out..like when I was icon_razz.gif

Haha i don't disagree that the pictures can be improved, just felt you were being overly critical. Just don't turn into a guitar_clock icon_razz.gif

Hey, they aren't bad. Some improvements could be made, but I don't know if I would have noticed them or not, since I used/read weimans post first.

Most of the Overexposure was on purpose or just me fucking around with different ISO settings. But the light was constantly changing all day. icon_sad.gif

LOL! fucking true!


Color makes things cooler, I like the one of the gate, and the one of the fountain (which is SO in focus icon_razz.gif )


P.S.http://i40.tinypic.com/wspm6p.jpg

That pic rox and you know it!


Also,
