Morning Billy,

I thought I recognised this area from the other day Wink.

It's a good idea to use the tree as a frame to seat the scene in, but for me this time it is just a touch overpowering. Because of the way the tree is growing would it have been possible to have taken the image from a lower angle while also pointing the camera slightly more to the left. You would still be using the tree as a frame to the right and top but it would be confined more to the edges of the image and hopefully would become less intrusive.

Take care
Martin

Hi William,

A nice scene, and a good idea to tag along with your daughters class too.

Martin makes a good point about the tree, though I would guess you likely wanted that feature in the water in the frame.

The time of day seems to have had the sun overhead, so it has resulted in some overexposed areas. Overall though the exposure is not bad. It does however seem to be a little bit too sharp.

In the mod, Ive cropped space from the right, and reduced sharpness slightly to make it look a little less harsh.


Hope this helps.


regards



Willie

Such a lovely tranquil scene, William. I think the tree looks dominant because it is mostly black, i.e. in shadow, and there isn't much you can do about that, which is a shame because this is a good image. A crop to the right will take some of the black away, and could prevent the eye from being drawn to it. I don't think you were close enough for your flash to have had any effect.
Pamela.

Lovely setting with some very nice colours. To me it does seem very busy and I can't decide which part to rest my eyes on so to speak. The tree is a very dominant feature, especially as a lot of detail is lost in the black trunk and branch. A much lower view point would lose the tree and give a feeling of being in the water with a lead in to the picture. You would still have the lovely reflections but your eye would be drawn into the picture towards the swan and the trees beyond. Definitely worth another go if you have the chance again. Grin
