I recently uploaded my favorite photo of mine to National Geographic and I think it would be pretty cool if it got into the magazine.
I posted this photo before in this thread, but if you like it please vote honestly on in.

I guess I'm already seeing the limitations of only having a 55mm lens. Still, I wanted to snap a couple pictures in my parents' garden, so apologies for the crudity of these photos- they ain't special or anything.

Spoiler for Flowers. :o:

Canon 20D w/ Canon 18-200 mm lens. Lots of distortion which I corrected in Lightroom later but those are earlier versions without the correction.

This may be a bit harsh but, the pictures you posted were in terms of subject quite dull and way over the top in terms of processing. Any effects you add to the photo should complement, not define it.

Anyway I've gotten into street photography lately. It's quite a challenge actually. It would seem that people generally don't like to be photographed so to get some street portraits I had to get a bit creative in terms of camera use.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to discourage you. It's just that the all in all in photography is the subject. We amateurs are actually very lucky in this aspect. We get to freely choose our subjects. All the professionals get to choose is the gig they take and that pretty much determines the subject. You can't be too picky either if you want to put food on the table.

Out of your latest batch the first one with the ceiling lamp with fluorescent bulbs was probably the most interesting. The difference in the color makes for a nice effect. Composition didn't really work for me though and there's really no story in the picture.

The second one's, with what I only assume is some kind of garden lamp, problem is the contrast. It's really hard to make out what's going on.

The third with the blooming tree is in terms of subject okay. There's just quite much going on in it, the lighting wasn't really flattering and the one bright light in the bottom part of it is very distracting.

The fourth is processed beyond recognition. I can't really tell whether it's drawn, generated or photographed.

The pencil sharpener pictures then again don't really work for me at all. If it would have been an exercise in product photography then maybe, but as is there's just nothing of interest for me there. However you have makings of an interesting by combining the subject and location from two of the photos. If you'd take the pencil sharpener and put it in the yard or garden where you shot some of those other photos and would go easy enough with the effects so one can tell what's going on that would actually make a interesting photo.

Mundane inanimate objects make very difficult subjects. The easiest way to make them interesting is to create a juxtaposition between the subject and the surroundings, simply taking them into an environment that's alien to them.

Anyway. Keep your camera with you. You'll find that you're swimming in the ocean of photographic subjects. All it takes is a bit of effort to find them. Then when you have your photo, go easy on the effects. They should enhance the message you want to convey with the photo not distract from it.

Just a little look at the beautiful British Columbia, my little playground. We had the honour of hosting world renowned trumpet player Chris Botti tonight, and I got a number of photos at the event. Sorry I don't have multiple aspects; I'm still stuck on a single lens.

Spoiler for Storyboard:

If you're wondering what Chris Botti's performances sound like, it's a compilation of famous songs which he solos over. It's quite marvelous, to say the least. Here's a video in Boston where he performed with Sting and Josh Groban.

Liddo-kun recently asked me some questions about photography, one of which was about the zoom potential of a DSLR. I uploaded two photos (pretty bad photos) that show the power of long lenses, and figured I'd share them here for the benefit of others, as well.

These were taken with a Sigma "Bigma" 50-500mm on an Olympus E-3 ("35mm equivalent" focal lengths of 100mm to 1000mm - supertelephoto range).

At 50mm (100mm equivalent), uncropped:


Click the thumbnail and then click the image to see it larger. There's a hawk in the upper center-left of the photo. (The guy below is trying to photograph the same hawk using a Nikon D3s with... I forgot what lens. Downside of "full frame": you either need to crop, or get in close to get that same tight framing.)

Neither I nor the bird moved between that shot and this next one; here's a shot taken at 500mm (1000mm equivalent), uncropped:
