Okay, here we go. I must say that some of you really put on the creative thinking caps with this one!!! There are a couple of shots here that really surpassed my expectations. Very unique and fun. I'm glad everyone had a good time with this lesson....
Jimbo -- I really like this. Great perspective shot, nice color,
and good focus as well. Good job.
Marley, very nice perspective and composition. I like the way you've
left room in front of the dog so we can follow his gaze out. Yes
your sky is blown. Did you shoot on automatic? You could have
raised the f-stop a bit to compensate for the brightness. The dog
is slightly overexposed as well through his body (but his face
is exposed well). This is a tough one for exposure, but you handled
the perspective great!
Linda1 -- very nice perspective. You were allowed to use flash for
this one But without the flash you've still done a nice job.
The only improvement I can see would be to perhaps have a dog toy
down at the bottom to give it some more interest. Overall a good job!
Emyly N Rio -- I LOVE this! I can imagine the looks you were getting.
Of course I know you weren't in the can, but it sure looks like you
were. This would be a classic advertising shot. It's excellent. Nice
georgie -- great perspective shot but watch the other things in your
frame. The light fixture is distracting behind her face. This would
have been cute if she had been looking down at you as well.
gingersdad -- love the perspective, very creative. Composition might
have been improved if you'd tightened up the shot showing more tree
trunk and Ginger. Exposure is off a tad.
zoesmom -- cool idea. I see the drip. Nice exposure on this one
as well. Might be a bit better if you had shot directly down at it.
(Like stand on the counter over the sink . Good job though!!
chocco_23 -- Now this is a fun shot. Wonderful perspective. I feel
like a lab looking at that food. Watch your camera tilt, this is
slightly going up to the right, it would look better if the counter
were level. Also the focus is off.
Labz4Me -- another clever idea. Nice DOF and focus on this. Might
be improved if the bag or tube (or whatever you are looking through)
were darker to give more of an impression of being "inside a mouse
hole". But a good effort non-the-less
lablover -- excellent perspective. It makes me want to either
spit or drop something, LOL. I love that you included some of the
uppermost railing, that really adds dimension. Good job.
AbbyandMolly -- Good perspective shot. It's a bit underexposed and
the composition could use tweeking (it's centered right in the middle).
But for perspective, you did a great job.
ownlabnjrt -- a good try at perspective but the composition is cluttered
and that is kinda ruining the effect for me. The railings in the
foreground are also leaning. Pay attention to everything in your
viewfinder when you shoot. Exposure on the sky is off. I'll give
you a star for effort though
Emma the Lab -- This one makes me smile. It's not focused well because
you physically couldn't get far enough away with your lens, and the
exposure is off, blowing out parts of her face, but I still like it.
CaliforniaLabLover -- a very unique perspective. I like this. It
was tough exposure as well, but you seem to have nailed it. At first
I wasn't sure what it was... I was thinking a "space helmet bubble" but
then figured out the wine glass. Perhaps including a bit more of your
hand on the glass would improve composition. Great job.
KLM -- another shot that's just got me smiling here. What fun! You
have very nice exposure on the dog. The background is blown, but that
white background is VERY hard to expose correctly with a black dog
sitting in front of it. Wish it were "straightened" as the horizontal
lines behind him and the pole/post beside him are distracting. But
all in all it's wonderful perspective!
Aim -- nice job. I don't know if you did it intentionally or not,
but the underexposure on this gives it a scarey/creepy feeling. I like
Anne -- nice DOF and composition, but you missed the whole point of
perspective It's to stretch beyond that box and shoot something like
you normally DON'T. So no gold star for you, but I'm sure you
enjoyed that glass of Vino
Jimbo – great perspective. I like it when tall buildings are shot from this angle.
Marley – Nice perspective. Try getting him to look at you next time. That would have been icing on the cake.
Linda1 – Good job. I would have liked to see a little more room at the bottom. It looks a little cramped. You could also have left out the dog’s head.
Emyly N Rio – I love it. Great perspective. You definitely thought outside the box.
Georgie – Nice perspective. The point of focus is on her neck, so her eye is out of focus. Remember always try to get the eyes in focus.
Gingersdad – I love it. Great perspective.
Zoesmom – Good try. I would have tried to get more above the bowl. If this is the faucet’s point of view, you should take it from above the faucet.
Chocco-23 – Great job. This is perfect and a fun picture.
Labz4me – Love it. Nice interpretation of perspective.
Lablover – Great job, but I’m afraid of heights. LOL Watch keeping your horizons level.
AbbyandMolly – This is great perspective.
Ownlabnjrt – Good job. I like this perspective. Watch keeping the posts straight.
Emma the Lab – You get an A. This is great.
CaliforniaLabLover – This is a really good job. The only problem is that I’m not sure what this is. Make sure your viewer understands the picture. I know it’s a reflection of some kind. Just not sure what it is.
KLM – Love it. What a great perspective. Nice thinking out of the box.
Aim – Good job. Nice interpretation of the subject. That’s ok about it being old under the circumstances.
Anne – Good try. We wanted another perspective, but that’s ok. I would have added the bottom of the glass. Try not to cut off the bottoms of objects or the feet of people.
