Waterfalls photography

photo critique for Norman

Christian

I have only recently learned of your site and have really enjoyed the education.  Until now, I have pretty much been a nature photographer but am asked more and more to photograph weddings which I am working up to.

I have attached three images for your review.

Thanks for taking the time

thank you for your images. Very nice…Since your images have the same characteristics I will make my comments as one as they will apply to all 3 of them

 

Content 7 out of 10

I believe content is not that unusual, however it does take some effort to get interesting images with waterfalls. So I appreciate you taking the time and travel to get the right angle and the right position. Also it does take some knowledge to use the neutral density filters and that tells me you know what you are doing. Also in the third image do I see some light painting?

Composition 9 out of 10

Perfect execution for all 3 images, rule of thirds, perspectives balance, and zig zag dynamic perspective. Did you put any thoughts to this? was it just reflex? can you tell me why and how you took these images?

Image quality 7 out of 10

I saw the small images and i found that visually appealing and I am confident if you look at the high resolution images that will give me a better impact, but as a photographer I can see through that. Perhaps a bit of post editing can give them an extra edge….?! first 2 images a bit underexposed for my personal taste, but this is subjective

Final TRS mark 7.6 out of 10

I would classify this in the good to almost very good photography. You are skilled, I have no doubt about that and you master your equipment well. One thing it is missing in my opinion is the extra wow factor, that thing that makes you different than everyone else, that last 1% of inspiration. Your images are very good, but I have seen this type of photography before. Show us something that only you can do!

 

Can you tell us what camera, lens, settings, and any accessories you have used? a bit more information behind your story will paint a better picture about you. Sometimes few words help

I am happy to receive your level of photographs and I believe other people should learn from you. If you have anything else to share, I will be happy to see it
