Submit your photographs here, for participation in the Beyond Megapixels "Fix My Pic" series of articles. Please ensure any photographs submitted for consideration are able to be downloaded from Flickr. To edit this capability for an individual photograph (without changing global settings), choose one of the Creative Commons licenses under the "rights" settings for that photograph.

Beyond Megapixels is looking for volunteers for the upcoming article series, "Fix My Pic". The series will give the readers of Beyond Megapixels the opportunity to submit photographs for analysis and advice. Topics may include exposure correction, composition advice, Photoshop enhancement, and the like. The intent of the series is to provide a learning opportunity for common photography issues and their solutions. Responses will be personalized to the specific photograph, and will always be issued in a respectful, non-critical, and professional manner.

It takes a certain amount of bravery to open yourself up for analysis and critique. We understand how difficult it can sometimes be, which is why we are extremely grateful for any participants who wish to volunteer their work. While we can't guarantee that we will have the opportunity to write articles for all of the photographs submitted, we will make a concerted effort to include as many as possible, and will try to respond to everyone at the very least.

Thank you very much for your participation!

Hi Tiffany,
I would love to allow you to post some of my pics but im not sure of which type of CC license to use so i can allow you to download my photos if you wish. Could you please tell me which one I should use for you to download and still keep as much security on my photo?
Thank you very much! Keep up the great articles!

Tiffany,

This sounds like it would be interesting; I'll toss two fairly different pics in if you don't mind:

Panorabix, Your first photo of Aberyswysth could be improved somewhat with postprocessing. The sky is overexposed, the beach is underexposed and the right side is pretty well blown.

Here's what I tried to rescue the image:

In Lightroom,pull the graduated filter down from the top and reduce the exposure, giving the clouds a dramatic appearance. Then, pull the graduated filter up from the bottom and increase the exposure to lighten the sand.

The blown area of the sky and water cannot be recovered, so I cropped about 40% off the right side.

I believe that these simple touches made a dramatic difference to the image.

P.S. I visited Aberyswysth in 1974..

Regards.....Dennis
