Kill My Pics is revived

After a very very long break I have decided to revive my blog.

As before, once a week I will upload here one of my many pics  for you to critique or in other words “kill”. You don’t have to be a photographer for that just a person with an opinion and a desire to share it.

The more you write the more I (and others) learn so feel free to express yourself.

And now, here is my latest picture for you to “kill”:

Cup of tea anyone?

Winter is almost here and the tea is back to warm up our days and evenings.

I love a god cup of tea or coffee (even better) while sitting next to a big window watching the winter outside.  That’s why I like this picture. It was taken exactly 2 years ago in a tea/coffee house in Detroit while outside was raining.

The picture was a spur of the moment thing with no planning (that’s why the stain is there 😦 ) but I still like it.  I would prefer however, to know what could be done to improve this image if I was to take it again – this time putting some thought into it before (and having a better understanding of light and photography)

Of the balcony

Here it is. This photo “Of the balcony” was taken in an old area that is now part of Jerusalem and is called Ein Carem.

The picture was taken with a “HP PhotoSmart C850” camera and had the following stats:
Exposure: 0.017 sec (833/50000)
Aperture: f/10.4
Focal Length: 52.2 mm
ISO Speed: 100
