I certainly understand the need for space but I have, in the past, dumped some things I really needed later. I have three external hard drives at a terabite each. I have a Sony A850 with Carl Zeis 24-50 and with the 24 meg chip, I can enlarge maybe a 10% spot no one else saw at a gathering and get a near perfect 8x10 to show for it.
I save almost everything. (Yes,if you ask, I have 185,000+ digitals) Moving some to DVDs especially family, general nature, special events, etc.
All the best.
I really love your dew drops on the flower. Really impressive.
Unfortunately, I keep everything except the total blanks or washouts.
In some of my free time I have gone back to some really dark shots I was going to toss. Working with them, however, brought out some really good things I never saw.
I am not a pro but I am proud that some comments I have received on the retouched underexposed people have said I have created a "work of art. Not unlike Monet." That was a special early morning before sunrise and a fisherman on a foggy lake. I will try to find the original and the end product and attach it if anyone is interested.
Generally, I like them all...however, as the other shoe drops.
#1 is under exposed. Processing could bring out the reds more brighely.
#2 The flowers certainly have enough light but your f-stop was way to low. As I see most of the picture, they are fuzzy. A greater depth of field would be great!
#3 A lovely shot of the "birds of paradise" though it still seem a little fuzzy.
Keep up the work. It is your first posting. Don't let my critic discourage you. You eye is very romantic in what it sees. Your camera, however, never forgives.
Looking for more.
Not a pro but been into photography for about 40 years.
Retired and 63 due to medical problems.
Love nature and the endless possibilities she gives at every moment of every day. Love family shooting too.
Do a lot of desktop publishing but digital photo is my passion.
Will be sending some things your way and will be happy to comment on your work. Encouagement is both tough and supportative so feel free to fire both barrows at my work or be positive in your comments. Thanks
