New travel photography site

Discussion in '35mm Cameras' started by Odyssey Photography, Jul 25, 2003.

  1. Hi Everyone,

    There is a new travel and documentary photography website at:

    http://www.odysseyphotography.com

    There are seven exhibitors - with a wide variety of backgrounds and
    images from over 18 countries. If you have time to visit, we'd be
    delighted to know what you think.

    Thanks very much,

    www.odysseyphotography.com

  2. Nice. Very simple and elegant. Some artists/photos could use a little
    more PS though. :)

    BTW, check out http://www.mvpix.com/ and let me know what you think...

    There is some excellent work here.

    However, I feel it is let down somewhat by the style of presentation.
    On my monitors at least, almost all the shots look washed out and lack
    adequate colour saturation and contrast. I feel sure that this does
    not reflect the high quality of the originals.

    Stan,

    I had only looked at about one third of the site when I posted my
    comments. Quite a lot of the rest of the site does indeed have more
    saturated colours. In particular, those from Lamu were excellent.

    However, I stand by my comments, because the majority of the shots
    lacked something in presentation on the site - even those from Lamu.
    I have now looked at them all on two top quality monitors which are
    set accurately to profiles and I still find much of the rendition
    disappointing. However, I do not doubt for a second the quality of
    the original shots. It's just how they are displayed on the web site.

    Best regards,

    Tony

    I didn't actually look at the eniter site, but started at what appeared to
    be "the beginning". As a former photo profesor would say "This is way they
    make chocolate and vanilla ice cream". Because we all have different
    tastes. Take care.

  7. I've been reading all your comments and find them interesting.
    I find there is a problem here. All my shots at
    <odysseyphotography.com> have been worked over in Photoshop and I very
    often find myself accused of using 'over-saturation' which for
    personal reasons I don't agree with. As they say 'different strokes
    for different folks'! It's all a question of personal taste.
    However on my monitor the shots look exactly as I wish them to be but
    then have to admit that as soon as they are viewed on a liquid crystal
    screen they do indeed look pale in comparison.
    There is something wrong with a system that depends on the angle one
    views the screen from. Tilt it one way and it's clear, tilt it another
    and it's dark.
    A problem.

    For me some of the images lacked contrast. Other than that - beautiful
    and eye-catching.

  9. Looked at the first photog's work, found little of interest. Shots
    badly cropped, poorly designed, too much incuded in photo, too far
    away, etc. Looked like amateur work. Very mundane and of little merit.
    Did not bother with other photog's work based on that. Sorry.

  10. One more thing: the camera can be turned sideways to make verticals.
    These folks ought to try that.

  11. Goodness me, Mike, I didn't think of that.
    Thanks for giving me the idea.
