Restaurant
Lens: Tamron 17-50mm Camera: K7 Photo Location: Dunsborough Aperture: F2.8 

I was travelling during the long weekend down south and went to this restaurant.
It was a nice place so I took some pics.

What do you think?

The picture on the right seems like the restaurant is too small. It just looks like a thing in the middle of the pic. Perhaps a closer angle. The Left one looks good but needs ot go more closer to the restaurant. I feel like I want to see the insides of the restaurant more. The cloud and the water just seems like a filler.

the one at the lest looks very good to me and the colors are nice, although I think with one stop less of exposure it would get a better mood.
is that at 17mm? looks very nice

Thanks Pentaxtic.

I tried to capture the view as well. The restaurant is located in a winery and it is a beautiful place.

Perhaps it needs a more appropriate title but I cannot think of one.

Thanks Pablom.

It was taken at 20mm. This Tamron lens is excellent for the money. I would recommend it if you are in the market for 17-50mm.

When looking at the pics, I realised I should have taken them at f/8 instead of f/2.8.
I reckon that would make the images sharper.

What you probably do not realise is that this is an HDR image .
Because there is no way the restaurant is well lit (you can see what's happening in the restaurant) and not blow the highlight (the sky and clouds in the background).

This is the corrected exposure (2/3 stop) and cropped version.

Nice subject and lighting that deserves to be closer in the shot.

I enjoy the distance to the subject (with regards to the photo on the left), especially the sense of scale of patrons inhabiting the restaurant, combined with the restaurant's relationship in size to the land surrounding it.

It could be an equally effective photo closer, but would be an entirely different photo with its own interests and merits.
