Photo Critique!

It's that time again, time to sharpen your photo skills by letting your fellow photographers rip your images to pieces, I mean, help you see the error of your ways. The Professional Photographers of America (PPA) says that a great photo needs to have impact, so bring it on! We're looking for images that will make us sit up and say, "Yep, that's a great photo!"

SO, bring your impactful images as you originally shot them (RAW preferred) and as you edited them (jpeg preferred) and we'll tell you what we think! Please limit yourself to 5 images total (in both RAW and jpeg formats), but come and enjoy the show even if you don't bring any images.

See you there!

    By the way, thanks a lot to Ed for sharing some of his daughter's wedding pictures. They were very nice, and, the black and whites he took with his old Nikkormat and Richard K's recent use of BW film is encouraging me to dig out an old film camera and try some film again!

      It's also important to remember that it's not only the type of film that influences the look, but how you develop them too. I've tried three developers, Ilfosol 3, Ilfotec HC and WD2D+. The Ilford developers are modern formulae, relatively tolerant of shifts in time and temperature. In my hands, I get a softer, slightly more grainy look in the Ifosol 3 and a finer, more high contrast look with the HC. The WD2D+ attempts to recreate the look of far older developing by using pyrogallol instead of hydroquinone as a developing agent. It's much harder to use and I, so far, have ended up underdeveloping using it, but the look is quite different. The 'painterly' landscape I showed at the Critique was developed in WD2D+.

      About the Ektachrome - I don't know. I would imagine so.

    Hello. Do we need to bring our images on a jump drive, CD or does it matter? Thanks!

      Hi, Carrie. Almost everyone brings images on a USB flash (jump) drive. Ed also likes to see a minimum of 1920 pixels on the long side of a picture (minimum....it can be higher) because that will allow the picture to fill his HD monitor he shows these on.

      Thank you. I am afraid I am going to have to cancel. I arrived home yesterday from Paris, and am wiped out with jet lag. I will see you all at the next one. Cheers!
