"Is this picture bad?" Top 5 Page for this destination Tucson Warnings Or Dangers Tip by matcrazy1

Tucson Warnings and Dangers: 35 reviews and 22 photos

by matcrazy1

It is not so easy to take a good picture either in a sunny day (are they others?) or at sunset/sunrise in Tucson.
First of all there are BIG contrasts between sun-lighted areas and shadows.

My top 5 advices:
1. avoid taking pics in midday, better just after sunrise or before sunset,
2. avoid making pictures with objects of large contrast (white and black) - enlarge my picture to see such pic - white sky and dark palm trees - although is it so bad? :-),
3. use filters if possible,
4. use manual white-black balance if possible and if you know how to do it hehe,
5. keep smiling :-))) and follow the links below.
