My November project
Posted By: YJD, 12-01-2009, 07:04 PM

With the help from several forum members, I setup a goal a month for a year with a them or color and also a fix focal lens.

The one in November was dark or low light at 28mm... due to the theme I shouted everything at 800 ISO even though I could (should) have tried a different ISO setting. I will post here only the one I liked, but feel free to look at my blog to see all of them. I have only used my sigma 17-70mm.








Let me know what you think (just be honest) and thank you for looking!

Well, #3 and 6 are just excellent.
#3 could have done with more room above the tree (less of the negative space below) and #2 and 4 suffer from high contrast loss of detail in the shadows with uninteresting silhouettes.

I find it hard to appreciate #1 and #5 is too dark and dull.
#7 is unique - intriguing - but not all that engaging.
Well done anyway.

Thanks for the comment Ash!

I love my 3 and 6 too but did thought about giving more room to the trees... though now that you say it it makes sense and would have looked a bit better.

For the 2 and 5, I was trying to get that dark contrast with the sky. On the 5, I was hoping to get more light from the river... guess i can try to fix that in PP.

Just used a LED flashlight that I put inside a pipe to make a smaller spot of light... it was my first try on creating a scene.

Thank you for the comment.
