About the Image(s)

This image was taken last week on the Oregon Coast at Devil's Punchbowl. I had never seen it devoid of water. This is a four image panorama taken HDR. Sky was bland and inserted blue. There was much color dodging and burning and many people were removed from the scene.

While a lot of hard work went into this, I find it rather confusing on the first take. The red jacket, the curving branch, the multicolored rocks in back and the many stones in front all seem to compete for my eyeball. After studying it for a bit, however, it becomes a more interesting scene.   Posted: 08/10/2019 13:38:46

I see leading lines and angles with the openings which also works with the participants and there direction of sight. I could see resizing with the foreground and right side to bring the tourists into play. Another take. I always find these images are a little tough to pull off for myself but through your work with the HDR and some editing it worked out well.   Posted: 08/11/2019 20:17:58

I always find images with a frame such as you used for the top distracting. I'd lighten it a bit.
