Where to begin here?: First off, the most clichéd shot in London. The halo round the foreground is a good giveaway that a new sky's been added (better PS skills needed here to get away with it). Big Ben is leaning over. Easily solved in PS. Oh! and that seagull right in front of the clocks isn't helping. Sorry if this sounds harsh, wire, but people say they're here to learn and I'm trying to help. Cheers, Mal. BTW the foreground's too cluttered.malsmith.com
Thanks Mal for the lesson. Don't know if wire appreciated it but, I did. Often seen posts with the characteristics you mentioned. Thought they were normal standards for the genre. A lot I know. I know a little more now.
No worries Mal i'm all ears,what i will say is though its the same sky in the original!im not adept enough yet at replacing the original with a new one.PS is still a steep learning curve for me,but that's what i joined here for to pick up pointers.
For someone who only picked up a camera 6/7 months ago i still think its not too bad......................cliched or not but it was a shot for my son who was doing a school project on the politics of our country.Not a vanity project and he liked it,at the end of the day that's really all that matters surely?If this place really has that competitive edge were the pro's pick on the amateurs then maybe it's not quite the place i thought it was. I still don't really take any offence Mald i'm not that insecure, but on reflection i thought the critique was maybe hinting at photo snobbery? if not and i've misjudged it then my humble apologies for even voicing this.
