    Crappy versus Snappy

    Hi all,
    Came across this link. I enjoyed so I thought I would share.
    http://miningindustrialphotographer....ppy-vs-snappy/

    How about posting your own versions?
    I started a thread about the process to get a landscape (Landscape process) which has some elements of the first link.
    So, here's my Crappy vs Snappy.

    Re: Crappy versus Snappy

    An interesting article with a great series of shots illustrating the concept. My ratio of crappy to snappy is pretty high right now but getting lower with plenty of practice.

    I find in interesting how my identification of a shot as 'crappy' has changed as my standards have risen along with my increased knowledge of the technical aspects of photography and PP.

    Hi Shane,
    I know what you mean about your own standards changing. Quite scary when you look back at some work you're proud of and discover it isn't as good as you thought it was. Also good to know that THAT (the former position) is how people see your work. Which means that they don't appreciate the extra difference perhaps?
    I am also a dancer (ballroom) and it's amazing to me that I get the same number of compliments when dancing with a relative beginner (say 6 months) versus a top dancer when in a non-dance environment (e.g. typical business function).

    Very inspiring link, Graham. I'll check my archives when I get home and see if I can contribute to this thread. I shold have dozens of appropriate shots, but I just don't know if I kept the "crappy"- reluctant to have anyone find out how bad I was not so very long ago

    Re: Crappy versus Snappy

    My "crappy-vs.-snappy" has to do with post-processing. The light in the scene was so awful that I didn't get my camera out of the car. Fortunately, my wife did. (Despite that I post-process all of her photos and cook all of her food, I've got the better end of our deal. )

    Hi Mike,
    Very nicely perked up - and what a change from the before, way more pop.
    Good example of crappy to snappy.

    Amazing what a little crop, sharpening and contrast adjustment can do.
