decent landscape compositions, but your postprocessing is pretty uninspired

I think your compositions aren't very well thought through, and the lighting is not good. Lighting is such a big thing, pay attention to the way it affects a scene.

its obvious you dont edit or process your photos in any way

you should start with that

The trees get lost in the hills. Different composition would have been better. Good subject and well spotted, I get the idea.

The stream photo I agree with the other poster, get in the water, shoot more to the stream and lower yourself. Also get an ND filter and a tripod if you havent already.

Dont go overboard with post processing, just a little touches more.

Keep it up!
>>
>>3463072
I think if you took this one closer up but with a wider focal range it could have a cool effect so long as you edited the colors a bit to make the trees stand out more.
>>3463074
This one would have been better further in/on the other side of the river to show more of the interesting mountain and less of the boring forest
>>3463076
My eye is drawn to the rock in this photo. If you could have gotten it less in focus or less in frame I think it'd be better. Even if you just cropped it more to the left side of that image it might improve things.

Nice picture but please resize.

The detail on the skirt came out really well. Probably a tighter aperture next time though. The texture of the wall is really nice but when you look at it you get led right into the out of focus portions and it's distracting.

Nobody loves you and you use photography to compensate for your soul crushing lonliness.

Thank you! Yeah, i just learned that yesterday after watching a YouTube video. The guy was comparing portraits at f 1.4 vs f 11 and the tighter aperture was a way better choice. The images were way sharper and the background was still pretty blured. I will start closing down my aperture way more from now on for portraits. I'm pretty new to portraits and i have a lot left to learn.

>underexposed
>poor composition
>poor conditions

Your trees are of too similar value to the hills behind them and get lost as a result. I can see you've also focused on them rather than the hills, which throws those slightly out of focus. Those two things paired end up looking a little confusing/distracting from whatever the subject is meant to be here. Also your lighting and exposure is pretty poor here. The image is overall underexposed about a stop which makes an already very lifeless scene appear even more lifeless. Sometimes you don't have the luxury of choice to shoot a landscape whenever you want, but it's important you do whatever you can to have control over that. Successful landscape photography is 90% natural conditions of the scene being photographed, and there's a lot of waiting and planning involved to get the light and weather conditions you need to make your scene look its best. I've met landscape photographers who will wait hours hoping to get the right light. It comes with the genre.

>>3463074
This photo suffers from the same problems as the first.

>>3463076
This is somewhat better. Your composition is a little nicer here, Though I can see you're focused on the rock rather than the mountains behind, which is a little confusing. You always want critical focus on the area you're trying to draw your audience's eyes towards.

>>3467957
Not a particularly interesting composition, but more properly exposed. Looking over all these you might benefit from using filters to remove some of that haze you're getting at extreme distances. Using Lightroom for post production would also be of some benefit.


Overall though it's easy to see you're just starting out here and don't have a strong grasp on the technical aspects of photography yet. More than anything you need to study rules of composition and apply those to your landscapes. I promise you'll see a lot of improvement if you do.

Use the heal bursh from Lightroom to paint away the background and make it all black, it won't become a masterpiece but it will look pretty creepy and I'd personally like it more.
>>
>>3471155

Good idea thanks for the critic
>>
>>3463072
Not shit but nothing interesting going on. Even just a 30 second exposure would've been enough to give a bit of drama
>>3463074
Your subject is the darkest part of the image, your background is in the wrong place (just walking to the other side would've been enough) and you're not low enough
>>3463076
The least shit of the three but still technically meh- fix the flare, frame more at the bottom and get a touch wider, play around with your aperture, etc

Your processing isn't letting you down yet so I don't know why people are talking about that- you have plenty you should be working on before worrying about processing

>>3467936
Why is she off-centre in the frame? Why is her hair messy, dirty and allowed to ruin the shot? Why is the background so boring? Why is the foreground so boring? Why is her look and pose so awkward?
It just feels more like a bad street shot taken at the wrong time
>>3470652
Nothing special but a technically sound, warm photo
>>3470657
Highlights blown, processing is absolute shit
>>3470658
If you can't even get your subject in focus you need to go back and start with the basics of photography

>Highlights are blown

How do I deal with that when taking the shot? Lower the ISO, use a longer shutter? But the overall picture would then be darker.

Do I then up the exposure on post later?

>>3471892
Grad filters if the shot is composed in a way that allows them

First one is cool because mystery, second one spoils mystery (but the impact looks good).

There's some artistic endeavour, doesn't mean all that much by itself, but I like it.

Neat. A bit of a digishit vibe, but it works.

>>3471749
Good idea, but don't quite work for me.
There's a lot of distracting stuff in the background (metal stud, shoe, fabric pattern that looks sharper than the rest of the pic).
Hands can be very expressive but here look a bit rigid?

>>3471756
