About the Image(s)

This was taken when walking past a group of ladies working on Christmas puzzles... This one was just finished after taking them 'quite a long time' to finish. Liked the theme it represented. Took a lot less time with Photoshop I imagine. Resized and sharpened. Left the glare as it seemed to work with the picture. Shot at F2.4 and 1/60th ISO 200 with Nikon 3200.

I think Photoshop "skew" would work to straighten out the lines. See my attempt. But also suggest to show the group of ladies to get a personality shot of them smiling around their completed puzzle, sharing the activity and friendship.   Posted: 12/01/2019 18:28:29

Your image sure is a "Christmas" image that is very appropriate for our Assigned Subject of Christmas. I like being able to see the outlines of the puzzle pieces. I'm going to assume that you wanted to show the finished puzzle in its skewed position on purpose. Another view could have been to show some lady's or ladies' hands putting in the final piece.   Posted: 12/08/2019 11:06:28

A true Christmas tale! You have captured the lighting on the puzzle well. The glare worked well in highlighting the pieces and how the light is directed onto baby Jesus! Agree with Carole that for further enhancement of the image perhaps one of the ladies hands showing.   Posted: 12/14/2019 17:31:32

That puzzle is the perfect theme for our monthly picture and with the adjustment from Stephen Levitas it looks all the more better.   Posted: 12/29/2019 06:08:48

I thought the puzzle was a great for the Christmas theme to use. I liked the outline of the puzzle pieces being shown in the photo. I sort of felt that the way your photo was displayed; I wasn't sure if it was on a table or something that was removed and could have been left to give the object more depth. I also like what Stephen did on the object.   Posted: 12/29/2019 21:27:24
