Thank you.

Hello,

Generally, I think focus could be an issue. On the sides of the picture - like here:

 

Azores landscapefocus.jpg

is not in focus. This is because of the type of lens you have - probably. Is it a kit lens that came with your camera?

The overall sharpness is also not so sharp when enlarged. This is one example of quality issues and therefore rejected.

There are also some signs of noise in the sky:

Definitely too blurry; dump that kit lens asap! It's a good time to buy used lenses as many photographers are phasing over to mirrorless cameras and new lenses.

Is that enough to reject a picture? I decided to focus the town and the ocean, that is why de hydrangeas are out of focus

Thank you

I can see what you were trying to achieve but, for me, the hydrangeas just look a bit out of focus.  Maybe it would have worked better with them being more of of focus so that it looked more deliberate?

They don't seem! They are. But they even could be more out of focus!

Hello, 

Regarding to the lens that I used, you are totally right, it was de 18-55 kit lens. I thought the image quality was at least decent but looking at the images that you shared I am starting to think that maybe I need to invest in a new lens. I would also try to reduce the noise in the sky the next time.

 

Thank you so much for your answer!

The kit lens that came with the camera isn't that good. It's a cheap lens that is sold in order to reduce the cost of the camera. Try to look for a third-party lens that has a Canon mount such as Sigma. They do quite reasonably priced lenses that are better than the kit lens.

The ISO could have been at 100 instead of 200. It makes a difference at that high resolution. The whole picture is somehow noisy.

 

The small details of the town bring the lens over the limits. The lens would have worked better with the flowers. But that would have been an uninteresting picture.

Hello,

 

I'll definitely buy a new less! Maybe a prime lens that is not really expensive... 

Thank you!

Prime lenses: you will need more than one, if you want to cover the range that a zoom lens covers. Prime lenses are sharper as equivalent zoom lenses.

 

Canon produces a nice 50 mm pancake lens. That's cheap and OK.

 

As said, looking for used lenses will get you a good deal. Try them out before buying.
