    Your first image of the green wall and the bench is not in focus. So you will have to go back to the very basics here.

    Your next image presents some interesting lines and is quite abstract although to simplify the image (the goal of the assignment) I would have not included the sticks and leaves in the corner. Remove everything you possibly can and only include the things that are of interest.

    Finally your last image is undoubtedly the strongest image for the purposes of this assignment. This shows that you’ve understood the assignment but also take notice that the area that is in focus in this image is not where there man is standing. It’s actually in the mid ground.

    Take extra care with to stabilize your camera in a dark shot at long focal lengths like this and make sure you are focused at the correct distance.

    Nice job here but as you can see you need to work on your focus and some of the fundamentals.

    Well i’m having a problem with auto focus after a walk in a snowy (partly rainy) day 馃檨 hope it will be fixed soon …
    Am I aloud to use photoshop to fix some problems such as contrast, horizon or colors?

    If you are having trouble with your autofocus try to use your manual focus! Maybe you can try to clean your camera, sensor, and lenses. That might fix your autofocus issue. Also be sure you understand what autofocus mode your camera is on and what it is trying to do. On the Nikons there is usually a switch that reads C,S,M. C being continuous, S being single shot, and M being manual.

    Here is the Nikon D700 manual for handy reference for you.

    You can slightly touch up some of your images but we would rather you didn’t. If you can leave them as you shot them in camera it’s easier to see what could be improved or what was done well!

    One of the core tenets here at the Icon Photography School is to get the best photograph you can in-camera. Only at that point do you try to improve the image(s) with post processing software like Adobe Lightroom.

    See you on the next one! 馃槈
