Shropshire Village

By salopian
I was attracted by the sun and snow which combined to give a nice light on the church and other buildings.
Just beginning to wonder if there are two pictures here and whether I should have shot the left and right halves separately, so advice would be very welcome

I like it. The sacrifice you make when you crop is that you no longer had a pano image.

First off, the shot can do with a tweak to get the snow white and generally brighten it, - thats mod1.

Once thats done, - to maintain the church as a focal point suggests a crop with more sky, and thats mod2. I dont see two shots, but two version of the same shot.

Hope this is helpful,

Nice picture, I may have cropped the left side slightly, and maybe warmed it just a touch, but still a lovely scene, Constable might have been tempted to get his easel out had he seen it. Smile

An absolutely stunning image. Willie's mod 1 with the adjusted contrast is simply magical. Certainly one of my favourite shots of seen on this gallery. Great capture.

I like what you have done. A fine pictorial image, well composed. I think the slight blue tone is indicative of snow and cold - as portrayed.

Hi Geoff,

A good Village snow scene with good composition. I don't see two images here but I do understand your thinking, If you were closer then possibly. That said I think a slightly tighter crop may work to remove the half tree on the left. Also a few colour adjustments to whiten the snow and enhance the blue sky which in turn could make the clouds stand out a touch more.

Nice shot

I like the shot as it is. The village to the right adds place and purpose to the church. I would like to see a little more life to lift the shot and possibly all it needs is a slight tweek with the mid tone slider. David L. Australia

Thanks for the kind comments and advice . Looks better brightened up and I take David's point re the church/village connection. All very helpful and thanks again.
