Tintern Morning

By Morgs  
An early morning shot of Tinern Village following a clear night. As the sun came up, the mist swirled around the village, and I had to choose my moment as to when to shoot as I wanted the boat to be clear of mist so that the composition was stronger.

Thanks for your support on my earlier efforts.

Yes -truly amazing light. I could be tempted to crop a bit bottom and left. Bottom to make the water a third of the height. Left to remove the clutter. Just right of the pole that is reflected in the water. In a scene like this it is tempting to capture as much of it as possible.

I like the colours/hues in this. Its a minor blip with the crop that does not affect a real good image. Looks to have been a worthy day out.

Well doe Dave.

Well deserved HC Morgs.

I think I'm in disagreement with such a drastic crop, this brings the boat to central and the right hand side of the image becomes a little dark. If anything maybe a slight crop of the tree on the left??

It is a very strong image as it stands!

Thanks for sharing

Beautiful tones and mist in this shot. The original works very well and it is and although there's certainly a case for cropping the tree off on the left-hand side, I'd be tempted to perhaps crop a little of the dark area off the right-hand side instead/as well as I feel it unbalances the image slightly...
30 Dec 2009 12:58PM
Much prefer the uncropped one - has more of a feeling of space and atmosphere, and seems better balanced to me.
