The Friday Snap (TFS 11)

Recently this blog hit triple figures for subscribers, yep we hit the big 100 and I would like to acknowledge everyone who follows this blog, new and old. Massive Thank You. I know 100 doesn’t sound like a lot but it certainly is to me and I really appreciate that people take the time to read what I write and look at the photos that I’m constantly making and sharing. Thank you.

It was not surprising to find a statue of a dragon within the walls of Cardiff Castle especially with the hype surrounding the TV series, Game of Thrones coming to an end. Everyone was drawn to the dragon to capture a photo.

As this photo was being processed through Snapseed I decided that the people in the right of the frame needed to be cloned out which I think has reduced the number of distractions away from the Dragon. Its not perfect but it works.

The Friday Snap (TFS 10)

This week sees The Friday Snap go into double figures and there maybe some conjecture that this week’s submission was captured using a smartphone. Let me assure you that it was and it’s all in the crop.

Cropping the image to isolate the subject reduces the number of distractions and focuses the viewer in on the subject.

Don’t be afraid to crop your photos.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

The Friday Snap (TFS 7)

I’ve blogged about this little Yellow Bus previously and as anyone who has experienced long haul flights know that stop overs can seriously suck, however they don’t have to if you wander the airport with smartphone or camera in hand seeking out photographic opportunities becomes an indoor photo walk!

Some times you just have to stop and ask……………..

Can I take a photo of your dog?

Fortunately I don’t have any problems asking people if they mind if I take their (or their dogs) photo but out of curiousity I really wanted to ask why?

Hope everyone has a great weekend
