Water Drops

I am still taking the photography course with NYIP and gaining more confidence working in manual mode..  I took this photo the other day and I think it came out pretty good.

Settings:  Sony a65-SLTV, 60mm, OFC set 128 and 64 (not sure for this image), 1/200, F/7.1, 800 ISO.

Is there anything that I could have done differently to improve on this image?

Life Springs Forth

 

Most people, myself included, consider Dandelions weeds because they are very invasive and take away from our beautiful green lawns.  Dandelions are the flower with many health uses according to Organic Facts.  According to Organic Facts here are some of the things that they are good for, bone health, liver disorders, acne and skin care and many more uses.

These Dandelions are growing in the brick patio at my mother’s house.

Do you consider it a weed or flower?

Freezing motion

Here is example of freezing motion.  I think this needs a redo.  The focus is not as sharp as I would like.  Critiques are welcome!

Unit 1 – Aperture

As some of you know I started a photography course with NYIP in December.  I have completed Unit 1 with a B on the final test.  I now have to complete the 2 assignments.  The first one is aperture.  I must depict 2 images, one with a shallow depth of field and one with a great depth of field.  The 2 images below are for shallow depth of field but I am debating on which image to submit.

These images are straight out of the camera.

So I ask you for your assistance, which you think I should submit?  Or do you think I should try again?

When I edit the image it will be cropped and straightened only.

Frosty Trails

After editing this photo and converting it to black and white,  my first thought was trails on the moon.

What is your first impression?
