Here is my work for lesson 10. Dhaka is not the best place to take cityscapes, maybe this lake area is one of the few places where there is some space and quiet to plan a shot. I hope it reaches the demands of the assignment.March 5, 2013 at 1:36 pm #21129

So you have done exceedingly well here. You have managed to balance the scene very well with your composition.
You have managed to balance your exposure,iso, and shutter speed very well here.
The light is beautiful and the subject matter is excellent. I couldn’t be happier!
Notice with these settings and your camera that you lose a bit of detail in the blacks but that’s ok.
Also note how with this relatively high ISO you get a bit of noise in the details.
I like that everything is in perfect focus and that you maximized your depth of field.
The person in the boat is even looking right into your lens.
The only minor note I would have would have been to wait for the light to get a bit softer. This would allow for a less harsh look. I would also like to have seen that dark tree on the right cropped out of the frame if possible.
Overall you’ve done exceedingly well here and I’m happy that you clearly understood the assignment.
Are you shooting in RAW?
What software are you using on your computer?March 6, 2013 at 4:29 am #21130
I am glad to hear that you liked it also technically, which is my main problem… hehe. Well, I did some shots later, with sunset more advance, but light was to little to have any detail, and I didn´t have tripod, so I had to go for this one, and the man on the boat also moved out of the scene, which made it less interesting. I did some shots from another location by the lake, but they are not that suitable for the assignment, perhaps I will upload them on Flickr.
I didn´t notice the tree, but you are right, it would look better cropping it.
And I use Aperture for my pictures, which I always shoot in RAW =)March 9, 2013 at 3:19 pm #21131
It sounds like you are making good decisions and improving as you go!
I couldn’t ask for anything more!
Don’t forget to try adobe lightroom when you get a chance. You won’t regret it!
I used to use aperture as well.March 10, 2013 at 5:21 am #21132
Sure I will more to lightroom as soon as I get a new computer, my current one is old and barely handles the size of my pics, I hope to get a new one in some months. So far I am quite comfortable with Aperture.March 11, 2013 at 2:45 pm #21133
