About the Image(s)

I made this photo in my garage before I converted it into a studio. There was plastic over the window and the sun was coming through at the right time. I used my Nikon D70 (that has bitten the dust) I had it set at 1/160, f /6.3, ISO was 200, and with a 50mm lens. As usual I tweaked it up in my Lightroom (one of these days I hope to get into Photoshop like the grown ups).

Interesting image with the vines in the window. The upper left corner is really bright. I would suggest cropping off the top 1/3rd of the image, and make the vines in the middle row to be the subject area.   Posted: 02/12/2021 11:03:32

This is very creative and good seeI love the yellow, I like the light streaks, I like the vine. but to me it is confusing. I guess I would crop out the bottom to the first dark pane. That would simplify your image.   Posted: 02/19/2021 12:37:47

Les, what an interesting image. I like the yellowish tone and the filtered look into the yard. I enjoy the sense of timelessness that it provokes, it reminds me of looking out an old garage window when I was a child. I agree with both Tom and Barbara, I think you would have a stronger image if you cropped a row of panes from either the top or the bottom.   Posted: 02/20/2021 09:02:00

I really like this creative thoughts and nature scene. I think it's just perfect, no need crop anything, May be just dark top bright corner a bit.   Posted: 02/21/2021 04:01:30

Les, I really like the lighting and how it brings out the color yellow, the vines and what appears to have resulted from applying templates with paint. To me the brightness in the top 37% or so just overpowers the tone obtained below. I would favor using whatever combination of tools to simply bring the brightness down to be compatible with everything else. Very interesting capture though.   Posted: 02/22/2021 15:21:43
