Phil Mininni

This was taken at Custer State Park in South Dakota. At that time I used a Canon T2i with kit lens. I now have the T6i and Sue was handed the T2i.

Tell me what I could have done better, Thanks!

  1. Phil,
    I like the colors and focus is sharp front to back. An article in Shutterbug (when I subscribed years ago) recommended removing power lines, unless they were part of the intended composition. I had a similar photo (trees) an my architect niece suggested that I crop and get rid of a partial tree (top right corner). Sadly, I have no original thoughts on this one. I will return to see what others have to say.

    • Thanks Steve. At the time I didn’t know how to remove the line. I do now and like the reed in my crane photo I have improved my post processing.

      • Phil,

        I assume that you put this photo up as a trial balloon. I took the challenge literally- what would I do?
        None of the comments and suggestions I post here should be taken as criticism or negative. I think we should all strive to post only constructive thoughts.

        I’m looking for a real challenge photo I can add. Or you can go to my website and give me feedback on all of them!


        • You are right. I used this as a first photo for the “Under the Microscope” page. I hope I get some participation from our members. We need others to submit photos.

  2. Great composition! On my monitor, the water is very dark. I recommend making it lighter along with the floor of the bridge. I would also try reducing the blue saturation or try adding a little yellow to see if you can remove some blue from the snow. Snow in the shade can look blue to the camera but it isn’t that noticeable because our brain filters out most of the color.

    • I learned from Allen’s comment. I did not notice the blue snow until I read it. This is the kind of observation and suggestion that can help us all. Allen, how did you come to recognize that observers fail to see the blue in the snow? This could be educational.
