Images of Canberra – Fairlight Road

By johnboy - 3 December 2008 49

Pommy Bastard has continued his landscape series with this one he’s sent in with the following note:

    “Hi mate, took this shot along “Fairlight road” at the end of Sunday’s showers.”

To forestall the outcry; clicking on the image will give you a larger version.

PB – I love the ‘hand of God’ effect you have caught with the rays. Tick – VG.

Wow. Don’t dexi’s comments reveal much?

dexi: I reckon there are more appropriate ways to pass on constructive criticisms than the path you have chosen.

I always find I get better results with honey than vinegar.

Oh common on the composition pretty crap. There is no central focus. My eyes bounce all over the image. The clouds are cut off and so is the the sun. Its wishy washy. Surely I can be as abusive as I want if it does not meet my opinion of what a landscape photo should be. Hows the bastard going to improve if he is not challenged. The last photo I saw of his, was horrid. This one shows a little improvement.

I guess its how people see things, not what they read into it that matters.

Dexi I think you’re mis-reading the composition

dexi 9:21 pm 03 Dec 08

Sorry…..Point, shoot and print does not a good photo make.

Feel free to post up some of your photos, Dexi.

Another poorly composed photo from the bastard. Once again you have failed to hold your camera level. Are you lazy or just ignorant of production values? Have you heard of Gimp or Photoshop? Have you heard of “the thirds rule” or considered how the composition of a photo draws the viewers eye? Your photography is amateurish, poorly conceived and executed. Point, shoot and print dose not a good photo make . These photos say more about you than they do about Canberra. Don’t quit your day job.

PB, all these lovely landscape images are wonderful, and remind me of all the things I like about the ACT and Canberra.
