Stark Silhouettes 3

By conrad  
Third version of this shot, this time with the sky improved (well, at least I think so), and the pink gone. Bit more blue introduced, this time.

I'm very curious to hear your comments on this one - or see any mods.

Thanks for looking!

Lovely shot Conrad. I like the strong blue tones in this. Only thing I would have done different is moved the subject to the left and not have it in the center. (only if there wasn't something large and useless on the right handside Smile

I like this the best of the 3 images. The blue gives it a cold, early morning feel. The foreground vegetation works for me and the line of windmills leading out from the centre, draws my eye off into the distance. Very nice indeed.

This is the best of the three I think Conrad, the silhouettes still look good and the clouds are wonderful with just that hint of blue sky there too.

Paul - Thanks for the mod! I like the sort of antique and soft feel you've given the pic in your mod.

Bruce - Do you mean cropping part of the left-hand side of the image out, or do you mean I should have pointed my lens more to the right? (I seem to remember there was something stopping me from doing that, can't remember exactly.) I recently read in a magazine that if you have a focal point in the centre, but also something leading the eye away from it, you could decide to break the rule about not having things in the centre too much. I sort of feel it works here, but apparently you don't. Is it just because of the "rule", or do you feel it really is necessary to change this because it helps the shot? Just wondering...

John - Yes it is a bit purple, isn't it. Only I happen to love purple, and I wasn't trying to make it look realistic. Just nice. Thanks for commenting, though - appreciate the candour!

Everyone else: thanks for looking and commenting!
