I've got to say @FishyFish you seemed to have stepped up a notch recently with your landscape photos

 

Some strong photos from @sonicwave too

 

 

 

Thanks Ste. I've been watching Thomas Heaton videos lately and I just got the urge to do some landscape stuff. I'm still taking plenty of photos of smashed up buildings and the detritus of human existence though. Gotta keep it balanced. :D

 

And just to prove the point...

I'm going to put a few more up in a day or two, but thoughts on this one?

I was just out for a walk this morning and I stumbled upon the place. It's not really obscure I guess, but seems like a spot where you could take a fantastic photo with the right light and composition (and maybe some leaves or blossom on the trees). I only really had time to take a snap, it was bitterly cold, in fact it was snowing five minutes earlier, but I'm going back there in a month or so.

I like the colours and shape of the flower sellers building, however for the minimalist in me there's too much going on around it. I think you know this, it looks as though you've done some work in post on the building to make it stand out ?

 

For my own personal taste I'd probably try some detail shots and see if you can frame it against a cleaner background. Or perhaps just a tighter composition

You aren't engaging though. This is typical rllmuk; write loads, have one line picked out. A line of many that was added to further elaborate the point. Which is: that it doesn't matter. Really, please actually read the clear points. 

 

Much like your pictures, there is and awful lot of LOOK AT ME LOOK AT ME LOOK AT ME LOOK AT ME etc etc etc., And no actual substance in your rants.  I started reading your post and almost lost the will to live half way through the third sentence.

 

basically.

 

1. take picture.

2. process pictures.

3. Look at pictures and compare each against a favourite picture. Ask yourself .. Is this better or worse, move to next picture and ask again, is this better or worse.

4. reduce enormous pile of ordinary dross to a half dozen perfect shots.

5. post those, ask for comments.

 

DO NOT. 

 

take a gazillion picture

process each exactly the same way

post a gazillion pictures

Self justify how fucking amazing you are

tell everyone how rubbish they are for not seeing how amazing you are..

 

 

Do you see ?

Going through a bit of a rut at the moment with my own photography, any advice for those that have been through similar ? Not sure if I'm being too hyper critical with myself. Any comments on these two appreciated.

 

Probably also going to knock medium format on the head for a while. When I'm not happy with the majority of shots I've taken, it gets very expensive very quickly.
