I recently switched from a Nikon DSLR to an Olympus E M-10. Still getting used to the camera, but so far I really like it. This is one of my first shots with the Olympus. I tried to eliminate the lens flare on the chair on the left, but I'm not good enough at post processing to do it smoothly so I left it Any thoughts are appreciated!

looks good to me. there is a fare bit of noise but i think you could tame it down with some post processing once you get the hang of it.

Hi everyone, I am getting back into photography after a long time. Began with a good old Pentax K1000 back in the day, and eventually stayed with a Canon Rebel XT and a 100mm 2.0 USM lens, primarily for portraits. Now, I am starting to get serious again with a recently acquired Fuji X100, which I absolutely love.

I took some street shots in San Francisco recently and used Darktable to process the RAW images. On most of the shots, my workflow consists of an Unsharp mask defogging, a tone correction and desaturation. Here is one of a couple of tourists just grabbing a quick meal at sundown. I was a bit shy to get too close to them, so ended up cropping a fair bit of the shot. I would be very interested in hearing others' thoughts on this picture.

Cheers.

I like the placement of all the lines. Subjects may be cropped a little too far to the left, but that's not a big issue.

+Emma Gossett for the background, maybe the top of a grand piano? Just a thought.

Nice dramatic effect. If there was only part that could be in focus, I would prefer out to be the tip. Another thing you might try is to put the whole leaf in focus, though I'm not sure if that would put the other leaf in focus as well.

“Pegasus - Dallas, Texas” - Pegasus, the ‘Flying Red Horse’, was built atop the Renaissance Revival Magnolia Building (now known at the Magnolia Hotel), by Texlite for the Magnolia Oil Company in 1934. Standing majestically at 450 feet above ground level, the Dallas icon was visible 75 miles away on a clear night. Pilots reported catching sight of it 60 miles south of Hillsboro, and some claimed to see it from as far away as Waco. By 1974, the landmark had experienced structural and weathering issues, and in 1999 a crane and helicopter aided in the removal of the two original forty foot horses. For the city’s Y2K Millennium Celebration, the original horses were used as templates to create a brand new winged horses, with the new horses lit high above the Magnolia. The original 1934 winged horses were renovated by Omni Dallas developer Matthews Southwest and set atop a 22 foot oil derrick. Illuminated and mounted, the original Pegasus (pictured) can be viewed in all its glory outside of the magnificent Magnolia Hotel in downtown Dallas.

I'm challenging myself this year by getting in front of the camera. This is week 1 of 52 weeks of self portraiture. I used window light. Let me know what's strong about this photo and what I could improve on. I appreciate it!

I like it. I think the contrast adds to the emotion of it.

Hey guys! Im brand new to photography although have been taking photographs all my life. I recently got a Pentax K-50 over the holidays, my first DSLR and so excited to start getting a bit into the field! When i get a moment i will go over some others photos and give my own views, but keep in mind I am coming from an ameatuer mindset. Cant wait to talk to some of you more!

I love these types of shots. The only thing I might suggest is to brighten the shadows a bit to bring out some of the details in the water.

I feel this photo is the best one I got from the roll it came from. Shot on the Pentax 6x7 105mm at maybe f/2.4. Trying to capture a sort of coolness that cigarettes brought in the 80s and 90s. 

Please be harsh, as I feel my skills and imagination are falling flat. Anything from contrast, lighting, location, pose, expression, to distracting objects is up for mentioning.

You should pay close attention to the background. The horizontal line cuts right through the neck. The plain brick would have been a better choice.

Shooting the subject in dead center horizontally doesn't give any visual interest. If you want to focus on the person, then crop (or shoot) this vertically.

Nice sharpness and there are a lot of tones here, so this should make a good B&W image but it lacks impact because the tone range is too narrow. I would process this to make sure that it has a greater tonal contracts, mostly it is lacking in blacks in my opinion.
