another from my walk in the park. i am struggling to decide on this one - whether i like it or whether i hate it. i am pleased with it but that is where i find it useful seeing how it makes others feel. nice to see through someone elses eyes
Like the random verticals here and that splash of light behind the trees.
thanks, i appreciate the comment
i have been dodging and burning and lightening and darkening and tweaking and redoing and backing and forwarding (i don't think those are words lol) but the opinion from a landscape photographer i have huge respect for means a lot
this year i am trying new area's when i can such as landscapes etc to bring into my range of area's i love with photography
I do like the light and shadows. But mostly I like the lit area in the b/g, I keep looking to see if I might see some wildlife or something in that sunshine. I think it is probably lovely in colour too, but the light I'm speaking of may be too washed out......Sandy
good sense of depth to the image. i applaud you for honestly asking for actual critique and for stepping out of your comfort zone. =)
when i first opened this photo it was full colour and initially i loved the large splash of green of the grass and also dotted with bluebells and other tones and colours but i decided out of interest to put a black and white adjustment layer on top and the image came alive. one of those less is more situations. i wanted the image to be about the shapes and textures and the lighting this time - colour is nice but this is the winner
thanks c - part of the new me - brave and less closed off and now it is to my own benefit. by seeing the opinions from others here has been interesting because funnily enough the bright light background was part i was worried spoiled the image and i am so glad to see that it compliments the scene
i have got to get back to that park as soon as possible
.... further to my earlier comment - I am at work so don't always have the time I would like to sit and view, also viewing this now from my own computer rather than the very contrasty work monitor.
The initial comment still stand in that I find this an appealing image with the random verticals and the linear splash of light beyond the woods. There is also some really good textural detail here in the foreground trees (and love the dappled sunlight striking the right hand edges) which subtly fades out creating a lovely feel of depth. 'They' always say 'that as a general rule you should shoot odd numbers' and here it has been done to great effect the five trees standing prominantly in the frame and positioned nicely in the composition which gives. The mono works here and this adds a moodiness and dark emotion to the shot, whereas, I feel the colour (though lovely I am sure) might appear too gaudy. I like this a great deal - grand work!
I think Andy above has said it all, I like it too
Another wonderful forest shot, oh yes, i like it! Catches my eye, wanna see more
I agree with most of Andy's comment, though I've never been convinced by this `odd numbers' thing. I'm suspicious of it in general and, in this case, it seems especially contrived — which are the five prominent trees? I count five mature trees in the foreground, plus one young one making six. And then the background tree dead centre isn't much less prominent than the foreground ones. So is that six (supposedly bad) or seven (supposedly good)?
In any case, I think the photo works very well. It might be a little stronger still if you'd allowed a touch more space in the foreground (say, about as much as the width of one of the trunks) so that the tree trunks didn't divide the image so strongly.
