The Carriage

Suby In The House

See  policyofsubster

So after the mauling of yesterday the Subster still stands LOL, told you all I  AM THE MAN :)

Now thats why I love visitors to Suby & Sin's House, they tell it as it is, they do not make me feel I am the best thing since sliced bread (even though I am) ,  so thanks for visiting and keep commenting.

UPDATE: This is another shot of the Whole Scene above. Not the most picturesque scene in my book  :)

ISO too high again. Harsh midday light + high ISO not a good plan. I want to move the composition just a bit to the right and come around a little more to the front of the buggy so that the black box thing on the left is out of the frame. Looks like a lovely spot but the processing doesn't show that, a bit too much noise and a bit too muddy.
Suby & Sinem: Laaurie, taken on the same day as http://suby.shutterchance.com/photoblog/3765.htm reason for ISO explained there smile Have an edit without the black box on the left but did not feel the crop so left it like this. There was a cottage just by the carriage so it was a choice of capturing the shot this way or having a brick wall in the frame as well tongue

Suby
This should be framed and sold in shops. I like the noise -- it creates a nice effect.
Suby & Sinem: Thanks tony, I really love the shot, expecially as I felt it came from nothing, Did not really have the best angles for this shot smile

Very nice old west feel to it. I just wish that the carriage hadn't been at the top a hill. Next time get a bulldozer and level the hill so that the carriage is on the same plane as the corral of horsessmile

Really love the processing.
Suby & Sinem: He he he he he, Bro you crack me up, I wish I had a spare bulldozer when I took this shot smile Have a look at the wjhole scene here http://www.suby.shutterchance.com/photoblog/23907.htm

hmm... something not quite right with the picture and I think it has to do with light, focus and depth (not a photographer so I cannot use the corect lingo). Another thing is the fact that the "carriage" seems a bit chopped off (this should actually be the focus judging by the title).

Yes I know what you are going to say ( i like it this way and yadi yadi yadda) but sometimes what you see is different from what others see and You have to be able to bridge that gap as a photographer and be able to be comfortable so that the pic tells the story (regardless of who is viewing it), without you providing an explanation.

Picture is okay. Best advice I can give is to listen to ur critics, take heed to what they have to say (even if you don't likey), use the advice to the best of your ability and continue to "think outside the box".

P.s - Remember we were not a photo shoot so we cannot begin to imagine what else is in the foreground or background. Let the picture speak for it self (not the photographer)!
Suby & Sinem: I actually not going to say I like it that way Sis, I had to take it this way came to mind grin Have a look at http://www.suby.shutterchance.com/photoblog/23907.htm

It's a classic!!
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Hamilton, me smiling big time :d

Suby
hey suby,

amazing landscape. the tone and the additional noise really adds to the atmosphere. the carriage is so completely out of place that it seems to belong...almost in a surreal kind of way. the one critique that i have about this shot is the fact that the top of the handle is cut out of the shot.
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Nicole, glad you like this, whew, was holding my breath after the mauling I got yesterday smile What handle you on about?

Suby.

I like this ... the muted tones and a western country kind of look ...

Somehow I connect with this as there is a whole lot of photos that i wish I could have taken differently, but just coudnt at the moment.... because of circumstances beyond my control.
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Intern, I agree with your observation, wish could have taken differently but just could not. Have a look at http://www.suby.shutterchance.com/photoblog/23907.htm

Suby
very nice suby but I perhaps would like to see the entire wagon. haven't seen anything like that and i'm intrigued by the wheels.
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Neil, I would have loved to get the entire wagon however I was slighty hampered, judge for yourself smile

Grossly oversharpened. Take it again.
Suby & Sinem: Huh, oversharpened, me not sharpen this image at all, All I did was convert to monochrome, add tome and grain and presto, take again I wish, taken a few months ago. Reason shot was taken was because carriage was parked in the most unlikely of places, behind a cottage (or was it barn) wall for a few minutes. Sorry what you see was a it smile

Suby
nice ! it looks like a picture from the 1920's
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Frederic, glad you like smile

I'm feelin' this one a little bit more, Suby. I think the background is really strong and your toning choice was excellent. I love sepia toning.

Hey! This is real pretty country, is this close to home? You could do a lot of shooting out here if it is.
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Micki, This was taken during our honeymoon couple of months ago, love pictureque area I must say, unfortunately it is a looooonng way away from us here smile Suby

I like this one. I think it is a nice composition with the carriage in front with the horses and a beautiful landscape in the back.
It actually make me want to go on a horse carriage trip!
Too bad you couldn't avoid the black box on the left.
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Sidney, I actually tried to a crop without the black box but the balance and ambience of the shot just did not work for me, so stuck with the original shot. Just made it monochrome and added the tone and noise smile Have a look at the full scene here http://www.suby.shutterchance.com/photoblog/23907.htm

Somehow I wish you centred the carriage in this one. It doesn't look like you aer interested in it.
Suby & Sinem: How to centre this http://www.suby.shutterchance.com/photoblog/23907.htm ? Get back to me oh kowing one grin
I like the added grain! wink
Nice shot, a pity the cart has rubber tyres.
