Into the Morning Mist - Original Version

Into the Morning Mist - Original Version by WeeGeordieLass

Hi. I added a mod (wrong image first time round - please delete as I am unable to.

I felt that the image is a great image that gives off an aura of serenity however I am a lover of monochrome so I used LR4 to add various gradients to the sky and then crop and convert. I also added some grain as I felt that the shot was reminiscent of a shot taken in the days of Tmax 3200

Summer memories

Summer memories by Saradadevi

Hello Renee,

I really like the juxtaposition between the old of the church and the fresh of the flowers. the use of subdued color for the background also works really well. I agree with Paul in as much as you haven't made the decision prior to taking the picture exactly what your subject is and it's relation to the frame. I have uploaded a modification to show how a change in cropping/positioning can yield a very different result.

Next time don't be afraid to hold the camera on its side. in this instance you would have been able to still have the background as is, but also got a lot more of the flower in the bottom of the frame as well.

Streetlamps

Streetlamps by Saradadevi

Hey. This has the potential to be a great image. I love the "leading lines" of the lamposts. They really draw your eye into the picture, however I think where it falls down a little (IMHO) is in a couple of places. the question is "are the line of posts the subject or are you trying to use a frame within the frame to highlight the statue?"

The Horizon is slanted. now I know that this means that you have been able to get more of the Lamps in, however because your background is almost compltely in focus the overall "feel" is that the image is falling to the right. This makes me, as a viewer, feel really uncomfortable. A higher viewpoint would have allowed you to get all of the lamps in whilst keeping the architecture horizontal. Although sometimes i do accept it is not possible to carry a step ladder everywhere with you. This said, sometimes it can be effective to "Tilt the horizon" but this usually is more extreme. however this one just looks like it is not straight as opposed to "out of wack........."

I also see that you have used f/5.0 which may be a limitation of the camera, however assuming you can open the aperture up a little (Widest aperture is 2.8 on wide) then you would be able to play with the "depth of field" more. this could possibly then throw the background walls out of focus and then this would be less distracting.

I do like the framing of the statue between 2 lamps, however this does seem to get swallowed up and if you were trying for this as the focus of your attention then I fell that it is a little lost. Try zooming in (or walking closer) next time and cutting out some of the unnecessary details.

I think that this the potential to be a great image and could do with just a little more moving around whilst on location.

I love the composition and the depth of color on the horses, however I feel that the mountains are a little washed out. this could potentially be fixed while shooting with a grad filter, or using a filter in light-room (or some such editing software). Also if you had waited for a few seconds then the horse coming into the frame on the left would be fully in, at the moment he is cut off a little and so the "herd" doesn't feel quite balanced, however these are all good things to see in hindsight and this would still be a picture I would be proud to have taken.

Reflections. What might have been or what is to come by colijohn

This is a great idea and is nicely executed. the editing is good and creates an evocotive portrait. For me there is an immense sense of loss, however I think that the viewers overriding personality will inform whether they see hope or loss........... The only thing that gives a confusing message is the use of colour in the reflection. I think that if the reflection was all "Sepia" then there would be a greater separation of reality from "Dream". However you have a really great eye.

Great Picture, Composition is spot on and exposure is great. Most of all perfect Depth of field for the subject.
