photoblog image At the pier

At the pier

Guess where I've been for the past three days, yeap thats right ............... BRIGHTON, my favourite place. Anyway I am feeling a bot more inspired and the change of scenery did me good.

I am sorry I haven't visited the sites of my fellow bloggers, I will be doing so today.

Anyway heres my first shot for the week, hope U likey. I have been playing around with compositions and I was wondering whether I could get away with breaking the usual rules. What do you think? How is the composition on this shot?

WOW! Really cool blues. I like the angle and the big sky. The tones and levels are very nice. Regards, Brent

Great composition. The dramatic clouds really help to emphasize the sign and the windows.
sk: thanks Matt I wasn't sure about the composition

Very well exposed sky. Is this HDR by any chance? Or is it good use of the burn tool? My attempts at HDR aren't going so well.
sk: thanks Duane, yea this is HDR. to make good use of HDR remember to make very little changes in exposure. For this one I used 3 images with f stop differencies on 1

Blue's reflexions on windows are perfect here.
I like this!!
I'm not sure you have broken the rules? The start of the sign is placed roughly using the rule of 1/3rds and the sign itself leads your eye nicely through the picture. Maybe that's why I like it so much?

Did you add a blue cast over it? The bulding is stramnge with strange looking curves at this angle.
sk: no blue cast, but I need saturate the blues in the image. it has curves at the angle because i used a wide-angle lens, which causes distortions. i liked them in this instance

I like the composition, you've got a nice even diagonal running down the frame and I like the gradual blur, like it's leading us somewhere--hopefully to some wonderful shots from your get-away. The sky would seem to indicate that.
The sky is amazing, the shot has a fresh and revigorating look to it.

Am I smelling a HDR shot here? If it is, well done for the use, it actually helps enhances the shot. I am not a HDR person at all, so this coming from me, is a BIG surprise.

Knowing when to use all the fancy effects and tools of CS2 is in itself and art.

The sky is cool, nice work on the image, HDR, still do not like. Would not want to be asking if HDR has killed photography. So thread carefully my friend smile

beautiful sky and verry clear shot. nice A. smile
I like the composition on this one. I like how the lettering, and the building, is viewed diagonally against the cloudy sky.
Lovely!

Great angle and sky. I love the sky blue tones in the window glass.
A very dramatically framed shot. I might try cropping it right through the vertical part of the B and then getting rid of some of the sky above. That way instead of your eye moving "around" the words, the words will lead you to the "PIER." Boy, I wonder if that makes sense...

The clouds and the reflections on the windows - jawdropping.After seeing alot of your works - you should be a professional (if you are not already,I don't know).
