    Re: Photo-a-day

    1st ones good josh, maybe just b&w though ?

    2nd and 3rd are just random people and the 4th makes me want to fall over due to the angle

    I actually like all of those Josh I love desaturated stuff with hints of colour.

    Again a bit of straightening wouldn't go amiss with the cyclist and young lady reading

    sorry its one of my pet hate things !

    Re: Photo-a-day

    I like the 2nd and 3rd shots as well, the reader works well with the empty space in the top half, it emphasises the solitude of a good book. I think both shots tell a story, which is really effective.

    Re: Photo-a-day

    Really like the bike one Josh. The contrast of horizontal scenery with the vertical of his body is really pleasing in my eye. The only thing I'd say (and it's not a criticism, just my thoughts) is I'd have moved a bit left so that the guy was framed in the black doorway (he looks far enough away from it for your change in position to change the perspective of the shot).

    Kushti, brilliant as always. There's no point commenting on your photos anymore, I ran out of words a long time ago

    its done on your choice of imaging software, adobe camera raw and photoshop has a level function, dunno about any others.

    Re: Photo-a-day

    I can't think of an image package that doesn't allow you to rotate! But if you really want to worry about it before shot then get a bubble level that sits on your flash bracket, only a couple of quid.

    TBH, I almost never use the electronic level in the 7D - not really useful for handheld stuff at all as by the time you've worried about whether its level or not the moment has passed. It can be useful for landscapes when mounted on a tripod.

    At least 9 times out of 10 I just rotate in Lightroom - easy as.

    Kushti - please could you post a 'kit list' of the stuff you typically use to take those landscapes - I would find it really interesting... I'm wanting to do some more myself (unfortunately the Vale of York isn't massively conducive to landscape photography - and when I get out to the hills its usually with impatient walkers who don't give me enough time to take photos!)

    Its a slightly differently processed one on Flickr mate. Did it with Lightroomm this time round as I didn't have it when I first took the shot. Minimal adjustments apart a bit of noise reduction and slightly reduced clarity.

    Edit: Camera for most of these shots was the little Pentax K-X - brilliant bang for buck camera. New one is the K-5. Excellent - still neat but far better range in the sensor.
