A quick view of salopian's recent activity.

  • Loch Stack in Sutherland

    I like this very much as well and read John and Moira's comments with interest. These made me study the shot more carefully and I realised that the tall portrait presentation, with the tilt that John noticed, made the Image look rather tall and narrow as well as a little unstable ! Probably my eyes, but I tried a mod to broaden the aspect ratio. I cropped the sky to concentrate on the hut and boulders in the mid and foreground and put a thin black border to tie it all together. I also (rather crudely!) tried to tone down the very bright reflection in the water - top right third.
    Just an alternative idea - the original looks great.

    quote]Great to see a beautiful model not plastered with tattoos and piercings. Well taken.

    My sentiments entirely - lovely shot.

    Removing the face and background on the right improves this already excellent image, though I would go a bit further and use one of Moira's famous square crops to remove the rather large, intrusive yellow feather on the left. I used the dodge tool very lightly on the eyes to give them even more sparkle !
    John is right - " a rather lovely shot of a very beautiful woman "

  • Welcome to the Monkeys Wedding

    A very attractive image as it stands and conveys the atmosphere you intended.
    I think both the mods make it even better and skram has really nailed it, simplifying the scene and concentrating more on the rainbow.
    Great picture, good mods - my cup overfloweth !

  • Tits Tats and sun glasses!

    Hate to admit it, but have got to the age when I would rather see more of the XKR Grin

    As Moira says selective colour arouses mixed reactions. To prove the point I have to say that the red light makes this particular shot for me ! It seems to sum up the mood of the scene where all is stopped. I like the shot as it is except I would want to do a little straightening of the verticals and crop to square ( following on SWMBO! ) removing some from either side.

  • Embankment Lightspeed

    The city always looks better at twilight or in the early morning and this is a good shot. Robert's mod lightens it up nicely but I wonder if a square crop taking some off the less interesting right side ( as viewed ) together with a little off the bottom which gets rid of the logo, would look OK.
    Tried to load such a mod but after downloading can't open it in PS -- "wrong type of file " ? -. Happening a lot lately and not sure how to fix it !
