Greek Goddess Apollo by Rich Sears

October 2020 - Greek Goddess Apollo

About the Image(s)

A small remaining section of a railway bridge about 30’ served as canvas to a local painter. Processing involved increasing the contrast, burning, and dodging. Nikon D850, 70-200mm f2.8 lens at 85mm. 1/1000, f/10 and ISO 500.

Very interesting image. I really like the texture. Very good photo eye to have seen this. I think that the word above the figure draws my eye from him. I would crop off the top to just below the word.   Posted: 10/15/2020 09:18:23

I first thought it was under water. You did a fine job of recapturing the original intent plus natures destruction. I like your selection of what to include. Composition lighting and subject are well done.   Posted: 10/15/2020 18:23:18

Nice work on this Rich. Tom suggested cropping of the top below the name. I think it might give a better appearance But keeping the name in lets the viewer know who this is.   Posted: 10/17/2020 12:15:29

Interesting and nice image of Apollo God. I agree Tom's comment to crop of top part a little bit. Or I suggest to add black vignetting around, that we can concentrate to Apollo.   Posted: 10/17/2020 23:37:59

I love it. If you had not said that it was a part of a bridge I would have thought it was a tablet. Wonderful work on bringing out the contrast and bringing the focus to the god's image. I like the top, to me it authenticates the Greek origins. I enjoy looking at this photograph.
