Virginia City & Gold Hill – March 2nd 2019

Had a great time stomping through the snow in Virginia City and Gold Hill over the weekend. I am overall happy with the photos, but I do want to improve, so here we go, time to critique. Let’s look at composition.

I could have done more to isolate the subject tree from the background. The fence on the right side is taking up too much attention in the scene. I’d probably drop the fence completely, move the subject tree right, and balance it with the one tree on the left in the background
I’d try this shot with a lower angle, to flatten/remove most of the background, to keep focus on the 3 trees.
The tree is not clear enough, the branches blend in too much with the stuff in the background. A lower viewpoint may have helped separate the tree from the background.


Indian Creek Resevoir

Some photos from a friends bachelors camping trip at Indian Creek Reservoir. We were getting a ton of light pollution from South Lake Tahoe (and, I think, Incline Village) but it did look kinda cool. Daytime was beautiful. The trip was exactly what I needed; refreshing, peaceful, and around friends. I couldn’t have asked for a better weekend.
