About the Image(s)

This is another that was taken earlier this year on a walkabout during our second lockdown. It was starting to get dark hence the split in colour but I was wanting to get the silhouette of the power cables and overhead gantries.

What I did:
As usual, I've kept any manipulation to a minimum

This is a good example of a silhouette and the clouds add interest but do not overpower the scene.

The green circle draws my attention. Is that the moon? Could its brightness be lowere?   Posted: 01/08/2021 20:31:24

The green spot is a bit of flare. My fault - I corrected it but then submitted the wrong version of the image.   Posted: 01/17/2021 05:00:31

An effective filling the subject and like the hint of colour shown all out this image with the tiny ball in yellow make it appear to show depth to the capture.   Posted: 01/09/2021 18:40:20

I am not sure what ther green sphere is, but this really capture a feeling of "end of the day". The transition of light across the sky is nice. My only recommendation would be to straighten the images so that the poles are perpendicular to the horizon, but perhaps you wanted the image to have a sort of off-kilter look.   Posted: 01/10/2021 12:02:26

Thanks for the comment re the poles. In this instance, I find that the converging verticals work.   Posted: 01/17/2021 05:02:13

Definitely shows night falling, and an effective silhouette in the foreground. I like the details in the puffy and wispy clouds.   Posted: 01/15/2021 09:27:11

Hi Steven, The poles and the gantries standout well against the sky, whcih is soft and non obtrusive in colour and texture, the image is sharp and clearly shows the connections on the line, certainly says end of day , time to go home.   Posted: 01/19/2021 04:13:06
