This message is regarding the Homework Composition from Lesson 9, Framing and Composition.

I’ve uploaded a set of photographs with the before and after cropping it in Photoshop. I’ve used a Canon 600D to click these photos. Please do share your views and comments that would help me to improve my skillsCropped-5888.jpgC-6160-1.jpgCropped-6160-1.jpgC-5888-1.jpgCropped-5882.jpg.

I’m trying very hard to figure out what the second photo is all about.
Don’t tell us yet as we can make it a game.  (hope you remember.)

I was thinking Welder… but not very sure.
This is what I was able to see with Lightroom.

Sure Mandrake. It would be interesting, though it is an easy one.

Please share your view on the cropping part. I’m new to photoshop and I’ve got to learn a lot of it. I watched Oksana’s videos and just started with this.

I think I uploaded my photos in the “Fashion photos” topic. I’m new to this forum, excuse me.

OK, mathias, let’s see if anyone else joins the guessing game.

As far as your cropping:  Composition is better thought of while taking the photo, but can be improved upon in post processing.  You did a good job on your photo of the two buildings… You certainly were thinking of the Rule of Thirds.  Both horizon lines as well as the buildings are dead on.

The monkey is also on a third line, although I might not have not cropped so much off the top (or bottom) so that the image was less elongated.  The fire shot doesn’t matter all that much as it’s not a presentable image anyway.  I like the composition of the two electric towers.  Again, it appears that you were concentrating on the rule of thirds.

There is much more to good composition other than this rule and you might want to try some of the other composition ideas that Oksana has talked about in her lessons.  You might also wish to work on better exposure.  Most of these photos are considerably underexposed.

OK, I think I’ve identified the bright spot as a cigarette lighter, and perhaps a pack of cigarettes next to it, but ICropped-6160-1-1.jpg still have no idea of what the wired looking thing on the right may be.

Hi Mathias! I think you did a good job on applying rule of thirds as well as straitening the horizon. I most cases horizon should be start (but there are exemptions). Once you know the rules, you can break them and get creative :). Just want to let you know, that Mandrake is our “Cricket = crooked police” (I always mix those two words up). He is always checking for horizons to be strait 😉 

Looking forward to see more of you work! Oksana
