Lots of problems here with the PC - tomorrow will be my last upload for a week at least - this is the Mausoleum at Frogmore, hopefully I have not posted this image previously.

sorry I have not got round to browsing the net or your photos but I have been so frustrated with things here - I will try and catch up later this evening and over the next week.

A great image spoiled by this flipping woman, "Do you know her?" "Where does she live?"

A picture card perfect composition very well observed and capture Ann. I would be inclined to remove the offending lady with a quick swiple of the cloning tool...

Strange, but to me "the offending lady" is a central actor in this shot. The mausoleum alone is interesting from an architectural point of view, but it is what its name says. Two angels guard the entrance and so does the chain, thus no human life can approach it, and this is what the only human figure seems to say by adopting a body gesture that expresses what looks like puzzlement at best, or disdain at worst. In other words a curious little drama is unfolding here. The composition is quite good, save for a small loss of definition in the mid-range, otherwise it is, as Nathan says, picture perfect. Regards (hope your PC gets fixed),

Nice to see you back on here, Ann Smile A lovely capture of this beautiful building, and I think the woman adds to the shot. Also, her red bag balances with the two red flowers on the right Wink

A nice shot. Sorry about the PC problems, - anything we can help with?


Theres a fair amount of cloning evidence in that lower left corner where the woman is that can be cleaned up. It tends to suggest she was cloned in, though of course something else was cloned out. I also uploaded a mod with her removed just to compare the two, and cleaned up the existing cloning.

Personally, I prefer the one without the woman. Its a clean architectural shot, and well done. Her position, pose and the direction shes looking make it too much of a stretch for me to see her as an actor in the scene, - more of an intruder.

All a matter of personal taste. If shes your friend, it becomes more than an architectural shot of course.


regards


Willie

The cause of a few comments, this one, Ann!
I do prefer the personless image - as Willie says, "All a matter of taste".
Great shot.

Seconded. My first thought on opening this was how nicely she balances the rhododendrons on the right, they are like book-ends around the subject. And then, they echo the two lamp posts, and the two angels. Idiosyncratic, quirky, and much more engaging than the composition becomes without her.

lovely shot the mods do make it better because the person was distracting attention away from the main focal point in my view! good luck with the PC

I see no reason at all Ann to remove the woman. Her bag is complementary to the flowers on the other side - neither detract from the main subject. A little cloning blip in that LH corner but overall a lovely image.

I think the discussion above illustrates the wonderful fact that we are all different with different tastes. People haters want to concentrate solely on the architecture, people lovers like the story that her inclusion provides. Personally I like both images because I like both people and architecture.
