View Full Version : Photography: places and things
I like seeing the other photography threads, so I thought you might like see mine.
I'll post more later, I'm not sure of the border yet...
Here's one of Mt. Shasta:

Well, I'm no expert on photography but I love this! It almost looks as if it were airbrushed.
As for the border, you may want to make it a bit lighter, but thats just my opinion.
02-08-2005, 02:01 PM
That's really nice work! I'll keep checking your thread for sure!
Here is one of the windmill in golden gate park.
I tried a little lighter border, tell me what you think...

Nice Dutch windmill! I live in The Netherlands, so they are really familiar to me! There are a lot off mills in the city I live!
The border is much better, I like the white stroke you use!
Keep them coming, I'll be checking out all of your pictures, hope you'll do the same with mine ;)

That is a nice one! Where did you take that picture?
That is a nice one! Where did you take that picture?
It was taken at Stowe Lake in Golden Gate Park.
I took this picture out of the window of a train in McCloud.
This is what San Francisco looks like 359 days of the year.

Hehe I've been there on the bridge, it did looked like this when I was there!
From where is this picture taken? Really good composition!
It was taken in the middle of the road :).
Here is another view of the dutch windmill:

Beautiful photographs. But there's something about the borders that make them look like postcards. Not sure if that was the effect you were going for, but I'm sure different borders could be more flattering.
Any suggestions on what to do with the border?
I'll keep it until I get a better idea.
Here's a strange one, I was originally going to use it as a background for a render, but it didn't fit well. It was taken with a low exposure setting and has a little levels adjustment.
19-08-2005, 09:43 PM
Wow that one is really nice!
What kind of adjustments did you use in this picture?
It is only levels adjustment (I think)
I wanted kind of a haunting sky so I tried to make the sky black, the low exposure wasn't enough. I started by selecting the black, grey, and white points then adjusted from there. I think I just added a little more red. That's about it.
Here's another. Not too many of these giant insects around where I live.

I love the picture on the insect! He looks pretty ugly if you see him like this ;) Hehe

I love that sky one, I haven't seen too many like that. Heh, kind of reminds me of the sky at night when you can see the clouds in front of the stars.
I was in one of those moods...
Here's a spider

nice images to look at. they are all good, but l like the sky one more. very dramatic. it really reminds me of Turner's paintings.
Thanks waheed nasir, along with Turboracer and Kingcolin for their posts a while back.
Here's another black and white
24-09-2005, 12:53 AM
simply beautiful.. :).
24-09-2005, 12:56 AM
wow... =) gonna qoute waheed... simply beutiful =)
24-09-2005, 01:00 AM
That sky picīs just: Wow! Really dramatic photo and it can stand there alone without being just a background.
Also the B&W pics are great. Nice composition with the spider.
Train picture gives a good feeling of movement. Train is going from left to right. Am I right?? Downhill :)
Thanks for the comments.
I can't remember what direction it's going, I took this photo a few months ago. I think it may have been stopped.
26-09-2005, 09:22 PM
Wow! The train is super, I love the small rotation you took to make it look like it is moving! Really good work:D
Another one... not black and white.
02-10-2005, 06:14 AM
Hey, good to see another artist on here with good photos. You seem to be getting a pretty good feel for the contrast of color and light that is required for good photos. Keep up the good work. These photos are nice.
Just messing around with some stuff, it's a stress reliever.
I tried to make this photo look like a painting using photoshop. I think the scaling lost some quality though.
Another black and white
19-10-2005, 02:17 AM
Wow Noyb (the man with the metal shaders :p)! I did not know that you also did photography!
I have allways loved your 3D work, nice to see you show some other work as well!
Our style is quite difrent, but I love some of your pictures!
My favorite picture so far is the ones with the coulds. Looks grate!
I think I'd better get myself a proper camera, you're my idol :P
23-01-2006, 01:35 PM
You've got a talent. I really like your photos. You seem to find the unusual things in nature and you have a good eye for composition. Keep it up....
I've been away from this thread for a while, but I have a feeling that I'll come back with quite a few new ones shortly :).
I just started a photography class so feel free to critique my new works starting in about a week.
Here is a picture taken at the college I go to. It was taken with a VERY cheap camera - considering it's made from a shoebox :). Hopefully it's not too small, if you think it is I might host the image elsewhere.

Simply beautiful photographs :):):):)
22-02-2006, 05:59 PM
those two recent ones looks ****** ace man!
Thanks for the comments fasth and jdgill.
Here's a pic of the Amgen Tour of California bike race. I have more, but they need a little more work in the darkroom to get the contrast I want. I hope to find time to post more next week.
03-03-2006, 03:30 AM
I love this one :)
03-03-2006, 05:06 PM
I like that last one. The only thing I miss is kind of eyecontact. I suppose that eyecontact is a hard thing to ask of those people, but I think it'd be more interesting if we could at least see the people's faces.
Focus looks great though!
Well, I tried my hardest in the darkroom to get something out of this poor negative (next time I'll make a better judgement from the meter then using an auto setting). The original was way overexposed - I think the camera set the shutter at something like 1/250 even though the scene was very bright - I normally use manual, but I didn't want to mess up the shot - well, guess what...
anyway, here's the pic...
08-03-2006, 04:27 PM
I see that it's got some techincal flaws, but I still think this one is more fun to look at than the previous one
Feels as if there's much more action here. Though you did get great motionblur in the last one!
Real nice sport-photo-journalism :)
09-03-2006, 03:41 AM
I agree with fasth :)
Thanks for the input.
This one was fun. A little shadow work...
It's been a while since I've posted any pics, but I have some recent ones from photography class...
Comments are appreciated :)
This one seemed to lose a bit when scanning in the print
Last one for today, hopefully I'll have some more by Tuesday...

They are nice photoes. I hope there were more new photothreads here at threedy....
23-03-2007, 06:12 PM
I'm glad DigitalPutty brought this thread up. I've never noticed it before and I have to say I missed a lot of great work. Some of the photos are simply beautiful. It's a pity that noyb doesn't continue with this thread anymore :(
I'm glad you liked this thread.
I actually stopped posting here because I didn't have much to post. I had foot surgery and couldn't walk/drive for nearly 6 months... so, I didn't take any photos.
But I will start posting here again
I may have some photos that I can post here later today.
This seems to be all I could find on my computer... Same race as the pics before, but 1 year later...
I'll check and see if I can find any prints that I can scan in.
24-03-2007, 03:02 AM
Here are a couple from about 2 years ago. I hope to take some more pics very soon. I have several b&w film prints and negatives, but I'm just too lazy to scan them in on my low quality scanner :lame: . These are digital with cheap(ish) Kodak.
Hopefully some good ones coming in soon; I'm still kind of recovering from foot surgery, but I get around (with a new camera :))
