I really like those photos! The colours were the point that jumped out at me the most, so if there's something you're looking to improve on these photos, it would be to go into Photoshop and increase the vibrance and saturation.




One day I got a good camera.

Thank you.....I don't want to even think about editing yet.......I'm still trying to get the shot!

Holy L glass Batman, it's addressed to you

Yes these look much better

1-3 look great and 3 is a stone cold keeper.
What was your aperture setting?


In #2b or whatever it is, that big hole is sort of awkwardly sitting in the corner of the frame and the cam is angled slightly upwards.
You might want that first set of windows parallel with the frame and bring the hole line at the top right into the corner of the frame.
You have to move around and play with it when your there to see what ends up looking best.
Shoot for keepers, but shoot a lot of images.
If you shoot it square, you can always crop it down...

Again in #3b just a slight amount of cam angle up. It happens

I'm curious what's to the left? Wuv the color and texture.
Cracked and peeling paint are a real big deal here More!
The focus point is perfect.
Otherwise it wouldn't look right, but experiment and see how it looks.
I hope you had it set to f/5.6 or f/8? Wherever your lense is sharpest is many times a good f setting to use or at least start with... experiment.

Crop that ceiling wall line into the upper right corner of the frame.
Try to get lines like that directly in or near the corner of the frame.

f/8
The whole point of 2b was to show the fallen window laying in the floor and the gaping hole left behind...and then the line of beautiful windows that are left....I need to try this from another direction.
Maybe one more trip.....
Thank you for taking the time...much appreciated!

to the left are these columns....thats what I used to frame up on the left...mindful now...Im just posting this photo to show what was on the left. To the right of the ladders is nasty graffiti in the corner that I didn't want in the photo.
The last trip was afternoon light...today it was morning light...sure makes a big difference, plus its beginning to get sweltering hot here....

f/8 probably best, but do some experimenting. Use the blur chart as a guild.

My bad, I see what you're trying to do...
Try getting the cam up higher.
Maybe way high like up at the ceiling from the corner of the hole.
Ummm, don't fall.

Remember to that for artistic purposes you can throw away the idea of squaring up the shot if it looks good. Many times in the end though it doesn't.
Play around with it.
Not sure what side that is facing but remember dawn/sunset; take full advantage of those golden 10 or so minutes.
Lol, more trips.

Meh, it's late. I think the original looks better or maybe only my stupid neurons are awake now
You can drive yourself nuts photo editing... shooting is much more fun.
