    Arty photo - opinions please :)

    I ended up having a little play with the camera (Mum managed to dent the car, had to get some photos, ended up having a little play around). Not very exciting subject matter, but the first time I've had a chance to play with this camera (DSC-P200)

    Quite good , thats the great thing about digi cameras you can play about as much as you like and all it costs is time.

    I drove over the top of a moor today and found a car in the ditch. I had the camera with me but never took a pic -must be getting lasy

    I know, it's Lassie, but it phonetically it's the same.

    Anyway, back OT. I don't like the pic. So there.

    Seriously though, good depth of field, and I can see what you're doing with it. The reflection on the body work, the pattern on the driveway, and on the light casing is all interesting. Spoiled by the crop. Typically (and I know Bobster and others will probably tell me off for being a stickler for rules, but to them ) you picture has to contain an whatever you're trying to capture in entirety. If you'd zoomed out and got the whole side of the car, or zoomed in and got just the light, it might have been better.

    However, probably a lot better than most of the pics I took when I got my first digicam, so kudos.

    Okay, I cheated, and totally cropped it down. And it still doesn't quite capture the scene, but is getting that way. And I beat the crap out of the contrast....

    My only serious crit is that the car is dirty. IMHO it would have worked much better with a clean shiny reflection.

    The crop is better, and the upped contrast helps though...
    Cheers, David

    I like the dirt, especially in the high contrast version. Adds something. A high shine would work well too though.

    The intention of the photo was to show a bit of a difference to this incase the insurance company moaned:



    But it ended up reminding me of some of the photos in here - that original picture was 100% crop, so far from perfect.

    I like IBMs offering, and the dirt is cause I wasn't gunna wash a car that is (most likely) about to go and have its boot replaced....so ner
