Thanks, AoD. And that's very cool picture. Did you take it with the 24-70 at 2.8 :wink:

Can I critique it?

Took this in Leb, was taking a bunch of pictures of this powerplant for a project I was working on.

Like it a lot, Patrick.

Hopefully this summer I'll finally go to Lebanon, and take tons of pictures. If things settle down, that is.

Currently focusing a bit on macro, "stock type" photography. Trying to see if I am really interested in this type of still life.

Anyway, here's a experiment I did today.

You know how it works, Cajie. People have emotional attachment to their photos. You don't want to upset anybody :)

how recent is recent?[/quoted5d6d0]

How about 2 weeks. And please no stock. This is not a commercial site.

I post my pictures to get comments and to get criticized, we're not all here not to say anything or to just compliment each other, that can get boring :P

So you're starting with me then?!?! I am cool with that 8)

True, but things were a bit tricky since i have two conflicting types of lamps in my room (cool & hot) which fucked things up for the WB. RRSSC, noted.

Pat: amazing capture, which reminds me of this album cover (like one of my favorites, ever):

I always shoot RAW, and one of the luxuries of this approach is that I can deal with the WB in post-processing. The D200 is excellent in nailing the WB, but after all it's a machine - and in a few situations where it gets thrown off, I can look at the scene and put in a WB number that looks good to me.

WB (atleast for me) is not about getting the white in the scene as white - but more about giving "mood" to the scene.

not too recent though, kinda stopped taking photographs ever since i moved to kuwait.

35mm :) graininess is from a high iso film. the original is in color which kinda looks better than this but i don't have it on me. so will have to do with this for now :)

My notes:

- Watch the symmetry in the framing (you're not exactly over the middle pavement)

- I would have gone a bit more closer just to frame the middle lanes and not incorporating the side lanes (far left and right) 'cause they seem distracting to me.

- Use more of the sky.

- I would over expose a bit, to get brighter reds and then lower the whites.

The above points reflect my opinion, which is not a professional one.
