    [release]This thread is part of a series of similar threads, all of which are meant to be a safe haven for all artists, no matter if you're unsure of your ability and don't want to make a thread, are lazy and don't want to make a thread, or tend to get yelled at when you make a thread but feel like your work needs to be posted anyways.

    Previous Thread List:
    v1 http://www.facepunch.com/threads/874501
    v2 http://www.facepunch.com/threads/951319
    v3 http://www.facepunch.com/threads/1053150
    v4 http://www.facepunch.com/threads/1081881
    v5 http://www.facepunch.com/threads/1105624
    [/release]

    What should I post?
    If you post any photos here, expect to learn from your mistakes. We are here to help you improve and give you a little praise to help you along the way, dont be expected to be treated as a photography god though. As long as the photos are something you are proud of, and have some sort of artistic qualities to them, feel free to post them. Just dont post a huge batch of drunken point and shoot photos from your nightclub antics.

    Example of a good post:
    I did a photoshoot with a new model today, experimenting using my wireless flash.
    1-5 artistic photos including Flickr links at 640x420 or 1024x680

    Could I get any criticism for these photos, should I do some changes to x in photoshop?
    This poster would reply to criticism and improve themselves upon it.

    Example of a bad post:
    Hi guys my photos are better than yours, check out my amazing HDR!!!
    5+ filter rape, overdone HDR, drunken point and shoot, etc photos at 1024x680+
    This poster would ignore all criticism and continue to think they are amazing.

    Why should I post here instead of making a thread?
    Often if you make a thread it is a gallery of five or more photos of which people may praise or give light criticism, if you post your photos in here you will often receive more useful criticism.
    Furthermore if you have less than five great photos to show off, you should probably just post them in here instead. If you dont think your photos are good, then people in here will be happy to help you improve (dont cry in the corner, just post your photos!).

    Dont post photos unless you are going to give criticism to others!
    If you see any photos you like of dislike, please give criticism. Criticism is far more value-able to a photographer than praise, so criticise even the tiniest of flaws in a photo!
    Dont post your own photos without giving criticism to others, as that is rather rude. Also, if you are going to post photos listen to criticism given to you!

    Latest batch, haven't been taking much, not a lot of time anymore.
    Also don't you just hate it when your pictures look different on every monitor?

    Good composition, but something went wrong with your contrast/levels. Your shadows are a fair distance from pure black, which results in an uncomfortably faded look. It's most noticeable in the night shot, but the top shot is guilty of it too.

    I feel like the radial blur in this shot just makes me think that you are screaming: "OH MY FUCKING GOD LOOK AT THIS DEER FUUUUUUUUUUUU--"

    love love love the second one though!

    Also, dumping my images from the last thread because of reasons:

    I would buy that, frame it and put it on my wall. Fantastic.

    It also kinda looks like the cover art for a vinyl album or something. Its crisp yet relaxing.

    Some bad guys chose to leave this car in flames in a forest near my house, it's not the first time, and it has always got something to do with theft of some kind.
    Well, I packed my speedlights, jumped on a bike, and came home with these:

    Think I found the solution to the Firefox Colour Space Issues.
    Since Firefox Dosen't support the AdobeRGB, the Colour Space you should use If you want to do any Post Processing.
    To configure FireFox for color profiles:
    Type about:config in the address bar.
    Click the I'll be careful button.
    Type color_management in the filter field.
    double click the gfx.color_management.enabled field to set it to true.
    Your browser will now display color profiles correctly.
    Note: View the site with fire fox color management off then view http://www.gballard.net/psd/srgbforwww.html# again with color management on.

    Hey guys. Really looking forwards to seeing some good stuff in the coming year.
    I'm off to Morocco tomorrow for 10 days. Expect photos in the following month or so (after I do some more work on my dissertation).
    Will drop by here every now and again to check up on you all.

    like you said, not the most interesting subjects, but they seem like they came out pretty well, especially for processing color yourself.

    I think you're focusing too much on macro; step back and take in an entire scene rather than just one feature.
