YIKS! Sure glad to find out it was taken at a Halloween party. Exposure and sharpness both in good shape. You're on your way with your new camera.   Posted: 11/08/2019 16:37:01

Good effort - exposure and depth of field both spot on (I assume the camera is smaller than full frame to get that depth of field at f5.6). A polarizing filter might be useful in this sort of situation to reduce reflections on the glass. Or maybe have something identifiable this side of the glass to make a reflection that complements the monster outside (another monster? Pumpkin face? fairy with wand? etc. and adjust the lighting on the internal subject to balance the reflection with the image through the window). Just some suggestions to think about for next halloween. :-)   Posted: 11/11/2019 00:25:55

All great suggestions and a lot for my brain to think about. Thank you.   Posted: 11/14/2019 15:43:32

I think this is a great idea and a nice image. To my eye the exposure is well done. Shooting though a window is quite tricky, I like Geoff's suggestion for a polarizing filter. In my opinion the focus is off, the window mullions are sharp by the demon's face is a little soft. I would prefer the face to be the sharpest part of the image. Overall a nice image.   Posted: 11/11/2019 18:08:09

Great idea, agree with above comments. If it was a setup it would have improved the shot if that fabric was not covering part of his face. Love the colors.   Posted: 11/12/2019 05:20:20

Scary! A great example of having a camera with you at all times. You nailed it. Ill bet the scene was gone in a flash.

I turned and he was there. But if I knew my camera better I may have be able to increase the sharpness. Had no plans to shoot through a window but the situation presented itself and I took it. It was a fun shot for me.   Posted: 11/14/2019 15:48:07

I like this as a scary shot that has an edge to it. Nice capture.   Posted: 11/14/2019 19:42:31
