Hi all,

I'm new to the LL forums so thought I'd introduce myself. My name is Terence Tan and I'm beginning to take photography as a hobby, more seriously. I was originally inspired by the grainy black and white photojournalism of newspaper snappers and pursued a hobby in travel photojournalism. However, time and further studies soon halted my interest.

That changed when I saw the Earth from above exhibit with wonderful photos from Yann Arthus-Bertrand. Since then, I have been trying to raise my proficiency and skill in photography whilst balancing starting a career.

Unlike YAB, I shoot primarily from much higher altitudes- whereas Yann often achieves fantastic detail of ground subjects, I try to obtain a wider overview. One might say I am trying to shoot panoramic aerial photographs!  

I am trying to constantly improve and develop- I present some images of my latest work and would appreciate any comments and feedback- even if it is to tell me to go away and learn how to use a camera properly!  

Please excuse the framing- I am current in the process of updating the typography.

Warmest regards,
Terence

I like these a lot.
Clear skies: I like how the clouds frame the shot - maybe burn the clouds at the top to darken a bit.

Mountain Barrier - a bit too much dynamic range - top right is too hot, but there may be a good crop in there somewhere.

Natural Barriers - I'd burn the top right to balance the bottom left.  I'd almost like the tonality reversed - ie the centre lighter and the framing hills darker.

Sea of Cloud Crashes - not sure what to do with all the negative space in the bottom right.

Thanks a lot Tim,

I'll have a play around on PS and see how I can improve things.

Mountain Barrier was actually a shot I had thought up as an HDR type of product without HDR techniques- just camera techniques. I think that the folks I have been hanging around are particularly enamoured with that hyper-surreal dynamic range and it's rubbed off on me a little.

I'm planning my next trip in July so I'm just working my way through the photos and seeing what worked and didn't!

Warmest regards,
Terence
