I tend most often in such cases to choose B&W, or sometimes be ambivalent. However, in this instance, Petr, I definitely prefer the colour. If it had been mine, I guess I would have started cleaning up the top that is in light, but then when/where would I stop? Probably best to leave, as is.
Thanks for the feedback. I have gone back to the original -which has a ton of room. Here is a square crop, which I am still contemplating. I will redo in B&W etc. The top has a white rectangle which needs to be filled in. I could either use the existing two panels on the right and elongate. On the other hand I could extend the iron wall…[Read more]
Thanks for following up on my comment, Erik! I really like this, particularly now that I can see in its full glory on my 4K monitor. I like the fact that in this case the figures are central. I like that the face of one is well seen and that the other has her legs placed in a relaxed way, which conveys a mood. The highlights and shadows wor…[Read more]
Very busy indeed, Erik, I struggle and fail to find a particular thing or area to hold my interest. However, on viewing this, I also did see your “No Rush Hour”, which certainly did hold my interest! You probably have no need to post here (unless you have done so already) as from my slightly extended glance, it needs no work 🙂
Many thanks for your feedback, everyone, much appreciated! All views are somewhat subjective though, Jasenka and Erik and I prefer the mum to be out of focus, because it has the effect of bringing your attention more to the ducklings, plus the fact that one of them is looking at the camera. I did take some pics with the mum in focus and could v…[Read more]
Many thanks for your comments, everyone, much appreciated! Jasenka and Erik, I partly chose this because the mum is out of focus. Also, particularly because of the one duckling looking towards me. With the mum out of focus, my view is that it brings your attention more to the ducklings. However, it is a subjective matter. I could very easi…[Read more]
Many thanks everyone, great feedback!
Rose-Marie I was once very hesitant, but definitely getting braver, though by slight steps. In my 75th year am doing better, so am hoping I will be great at doing so – by the time I am 100 years old! Each time I do it, I find that 99% of the time the people approached are very happy to be involved. The…[Read more]
Love it, Philip. My suggestions are quite different from the two above. By the way, I really like the space on top.
Two things I would do are:
- Lessen the impact of the two shoes – they detract a bit from the overall story.
- Get rid of the (halo?) in front of her face – and also at the back crown of her head.
Really great and a great s…[Read more]
Very good capture, Matteo, with good strong colours. Unfortunately, the colours vie for attention and the story gets a bit lost. In such situations, I wonder how the same image would work in monochrome? As you allow edits, I have done an example here. I have translated in Nik Silver Efex 2, using High Dynamic – Harsh. Have not tinkered furt…[Read more]
