    and when processing, try to be careful of making halos on your edges when brightening darker parts of the image. Are you shooting RAW? If not, definitely do so, you've got a damn good camera, be sure to use it to it's fullest potential! (shooting raw will make ISO noise much easier to deal with, so you can go much higher if necessary)
    Yeap, have always been on raw.

    Yea, was using the adjustment brush to brighten the mountains, but the edges got touched up as well.

    Its a little difficult when you're using a mousepad to do that

    No transamerican pyramid?

    Edited:

    or golden gate?
    im only kinda a tourist, I visit the city about once a month cuz im only and hour and a half away. Also, I kinda have a firm stance on not taking pictures of iconic landmarks just because things like that have been photographed a million times, no photograph i can take of the golden gate is going to be worth more than what google images has to offer. I went to paris and didn't take a picture of the eiffel tower, and it drove my grandfather insane.




    also fun fact, I was born in san francisco! So theres that.

    I think that's a bit of a naive position to take. Photograph the landmarks, but try to do them in a way only you can. Introduce your own perspective and artistic sensibility. Avoiding a subject just because it's been done is cutting off your nose to spite your face.

    anything specific to improve on? I liked the simplicity of some of the images but I know everyone thinks differently

    I mean, I understand what you mean, and heres an example of what I think you're talking about?

    I'm not flat out avoiding landmarks or sunsets or other well documented things, I'm just not seeking them out because I think they make for boring photographs. I took this photo because I thought the juxtaposition of a scum puddle next to the eiffel tower was funny and kinda interesting, and because it was a little throw away picture I was ok with having my friend pose next to it (kinda added to the comedy I thought and added some scale and context) but I don't think im stifling my artistic expression by not bothering to take a serous photograph of a landmark.

    Its all down to what you find interesting I suppose

    I'd still photograph them for the sake of documenting the fact that I was there, the different time and weather in itself makes it unique to a certain aspect.

    To give an example of what I meant, take a look at these. I took them a couple weeks ago.

    Wig Shop by Jared Sebby, on Flickr

    Trusses by Jared Sebby, on Flickr

    The first is the overdone photo. Everyone takes a picture of the Sunsphere's giant yellow orb. You've probably seen it a thousand times.

    The other, though, is a perspective most people don't see, and nobody takes pictures of. The landmark is the setting, not necessarily the subject. It's still the Sunsphere, and anyone who knows the Sunsphere would recognize it immediately, but it's not something anyone's really done before.

    That's what I meant. Take photos of the landmarks, but don't do it the way others do.

    You're probably right, you're not losing a lot, but you are losing something. I don't think self-imposed limitations help when you're thinking creatively.

    Edited:

    I think that only further illustrates my point. There are a thousand ways to photograph horseshoe bend, and yet everyone only uses that one perspective. Find a new one. Break the mold.

    That's an amazing shot. The one thing that bothers me though is the neon light is to bright in my opinion. It's the first thing that got my attention. I like how it matches the color of the other lights though. Maybe if you burn it to match the brightness of the hanging lights it would be less of a distraction.

    Overall, good shot, good posing and lighting.

    I see that golden orb back there. Can't quite figure out the garage... Locust street?

    When were you in town? Or do you live here? Does that make three of us now?
