The Air Up There... by K-Tak The Air Up There... by K-Tak
Location: Some random park near my place, Melbourne

Lense: Canon EF-S 17-85/4-5.6 IS USM
UV Filter used

1st official upload from my EOS 40D. I'm hoping to be able to look back at this in a few months time and think to myself 'what the hell was I thinkin uploading such a crappy shot'

hehe. Peace out~

EDIT: ISO speed should definitely not have been that high.. gah~ lol.

EDIT #2: I've changed the boarder... the previous one was hideous~ XD

I like this, it's nicely simple. however, you need to crop the bottom of the image - you can see the tops of tree.

also, YOUR BORDERS!! please think about your borders before applying them.

P.S. I'd advise you to browse flickr rather than deviantart to see the works of other photographers, to get your mind thinking.

I'd say browse flickr and see how photographers frame their images.

personally, I don't like the black outline you have, I think borders should be simple and crisp. most often, I've seen black or white. if there is a black outline immediately framing the image it should only appear in photos accompany an article otherwise it should be done in such a way ([link]) ([link])

P.S. Lloyd linked me to this, she has quite a nice set of photos. [link]

also, think about photoshopping your images to enhance/adjust them; unless you're a purist and think images should be as they are taken.

hmm... gotcha. :) thanks for the tip.

Also, what that chick does with her photos... amazing. :) The way she's framed it... iono... it's like it's straight out of a movie (which it is... lol)

and this shot was enhanced/adjusted in photoshop. lol... have any tips on how i can improve it?

he is probably going to end up telling you eventually when you start talking about things measuring 8mm. anyway, he loves this podcast called 'This Week in Photography' (TWiP), they've got a website and a group on flickr; anyway they have videos about photoshop. otherwise google photoshop tutorials.
