    Add a dash of Hoi An...

    by tryinghard » Wed Nov 09, 2011 3:35 pm

    and simmer !

    I am trying to capture the mystical feeling I had exploring the back streets of Hoi An, Vietnam. Low light at dusk...1 sec exp, f/8, ISO100, Canon EOS350D

    Successful ? no ? what could I have done better ?

    Either go for a longer shutter or a shorter one, as is the blur of passing traffic is just enough to blur the subject. Oh, and watch out for lunatic tourists on mopeds.

    Also don't forget to grab the lanterns on the river in Hoi-An at night, would make for some great shots.

    Agree with Dale. Shorter or longer shutter. If you go shorter have the passing traffic blurred a bit, or longer so they are no existent.

    Cheers guys- appreciate the feedback, it's so hard to critique your own stuff and awesome to get someone else's perspective..

    How about another from Hoi An- the Japanese Bridge....

    Agree with the shorter shutter speed 1/15th should be about right to get movement and colour and blur.

    Hope you don't mind but I think the top one looks better darker and the bottom one needs lightening up :D

    just adjusted in curves.
