I'd give that an 8/10. Are the trees supposed to be blurry?

 

As @tmcclelland455 said, yes I did do a 30 second exposure and sadly that night was a little bit windy, so the trees became blurry. But it was my best image to date as far as the amount of stars captured.

There was probably wind, and with a seemingly high exposure (or whatever the term was, I need to brush up a lot), the trees moving would cause them to be blurry.

 

EDIT: 'Scuse all the compression, but LTT REALLY likes to compress images...

 

But even here, applying a high pass filter to try and bring that blur down as much as possible makes the image look worse, IMO.

Ya, I really only use Lightroom, I think that is a PS tool right? Anyways I'm still not very good with LR or PS at all as I'm on the trial and all that.

This thread seems fun, I'll join in. 

I like the idea and the way you did the color and edits, although the hair is a little grainy as far as the color goes. Also ya forgot to rate my image ^^^ Anyways, here's my new entry;

The Stars that We Can't See by 1823alex, on Flickr

I quite like it. I would like it more if the trees weren't blurry. Must have been a windy day. What time did you take that at? Those trees look kind of oddly bright for a 30 second exposure. anyways 8/10. Could've been 9 or even 10 without blurry trees :)

 

Uhh, I dont really feel like downscaling this photo to 800 pixels, so I'll put it in a spoiler thing. note: I blurred the shit out of this image to make it less grainy. I wasn't shooting in RAW, stupid me :)

It's a nice moment, but with a bit of an unfortunate angle, though. The lighter orange goes great with the plants, though. With some better light on the abdomen, I think it could've been great. I don't believe in number ratings, as they're not a good way to determine value, but nice.

 

 

This is my take on tonight's blue moon.

Did you happen to take that at dusk while the sun was still out? Or did you just set up a long exposure at nighttime? The light off the buildings makes it seem as if the sun was still out.

No, this was at around 10:30. The moon was full, and as the EXIF data shows, it was 30 secs at f/2.8 and 100 ISO. I was surprised myself. The light on the buildings is a mix of streetlights and their usual yellow color.

7/10 Wish the moon was a little more in focus so that I could see a little bit of the craters and all, but the idea and the foreground is very nice and something I really like.

Since the full blue moon was last night, I decided to also take a picture. People call it the "blue" moon since it's rare but it isn't actually blue, so I decided why not make it look blue for fun, so I took the following picture and just put the tint at 2800. I do kinda wish I had some amount of like tree or something other than just the black sky with the moon, but here's the picture:

First of all, a bit of critique would be nice, not just a score. :)

 

7/10

Please don't kill me,I'm newbie and still use my phone.Shooted with Nexus 5

 

 

Anywhoo.

 

Pretty good picture considering it's a phone. That being said, I've got a few things I don't like.

 

1) the colours are all washed out. considering the subject matter, a race car, the colours are really important.

2) shutter speed is too high, thus your pic has no sense of movement.

 

Cars in motion are notoriously hard to shoot, let alone with a phone cam... Final verdict from me is a 5/10

 

Onwards, here's a bit of b&w urban exploration for y'all. Again, I'm an analogue freak, especially in b&w, so the the grain is very much visible.

Okay,next time I'll know.

And thanks for critique - it's always a good thing,even if it points a negative things.

1) Yes,I agree,colors are a bit washed out.But I'm just starting this thing.

2)Car was just standing there for it's time to show up on track for participants parade,so I didn't used shutter speed.

But yes,thanks for pointing things out :)

Ok I'm a dumbass. I actually thought the car was moving when you took the pic!

It looks ever so slightly fisheyed but that's my only criticism.  I love the reflection on the water and I personally find the saturation right on point.

8/10 it looks quite nice the subject matter is just boring IMHO

6/10 I like the water in the picture, but I'm not really sure what my attention is supposed to be drawn to. Should I be looking at the bridge, the house, the water etc. I just don't like how I have to "think" persay about what and where I should be looking. Anyways, here's another astrophotography shot I did, something I'm really into right now.

I really like long exposure shots. However - as Im sure you saw, those trees are a bit blurry, and throws the whole picture off (for me). I just got a decent tripod after not having one for ages. will need to try myself some time. The most breathtaking astrophotography/star trails shots I've seen have a better setting that some trees - just something else to think about. 5/10

I guess you went for the texture in the butterfly's wing, otherwise front lighting would have worked for your advantage to better illuminate the subject. The thing is, the image is just a little too blurry, even at downscaled. I guess you could have tried a slower shutter speed and lower iso if noise was that much of a problem.

 

I love clouds :)

Judging by the "_merged" in the name, I'm going to assume it's a panorama. And if that's the case, it's bloody good. My only whiny bit is that there's like a vignette, but in a way it makes it look better. Solid 9.888888888888888888 by me.

 

Here's one of my cat that I took in a bit of a rush (hence the portrait-ness).

Ah I like. I think the only criticism I would have would be to take the picture in horizontal view. You would get more of the cat. Plus It could be a tad brighter, (And I mean a LITTLE) only to get the head exposed a little bit more without overduing the carpet. 

I don't see what the rush was for (For the portrait-ness) It looks like the cat is in a calm state. Hell if my cat did this then I would go run and get my SLR lol. My cat is always in a hyper state. never staying still.

8/10 in real world. 9/10 for me because its a cat lol

 

So the story behind this pic was I was digging through my ICloud drive and I randomly stumbled upon it. it absolutely looks amazing and I will never take a photo like it ever again. I Know it was shot on my D3200, but I don't know the settings as it was edited and exported as JPEG. The dog's name is Faith :)

Self criticism would be that its not zoomed in, but it was one of those things where I had a wide angle lens on and just so happened to take it.

Yep, it's merged. I wanted test how it would look. Haha, I even added a little post vignette, because I thought it made it look better :)

All you need to do is set up your camera's exposure in a way that favors a slower shutter speed. So, you have a slower shutter speed that results in blurr, but then Lower ISO and Higher Aperture number. You then just focus on the moving object, and follow it. :)

 

Fun shot, but with practice you can get a really cool effect. 6/10.

Looks bad to me tbh.... everything is just blurry for this to be a nice pic the dog would have to be a little more in focus 7/10

 

 

 

took this in st.john canada off my cruise ship. 

5/10 It is very over exposed. Subject is interesting, but the blown out sky and the angle just dont work for me.

 

here is a shot i took at lake taho this past weekend.
