About the Image(s)

This photo was taken while on vacation in Wisconsin June of last year using my I-Phone 11 Pro Max as a raw file. Post processing in Lightroom Develop mode making slight basic adjustments then transferred to Photo Show CC to select only the red part of the boat to adjust the brightness. Lastly I resized and added a border to the image.

Kathleen, what a lovely image. I think your editing is spot on. Your enhancement of the red really takes this image to the next level.   Posted: 01/09/2021 12:40:35

I agree, it is a lovely image. The boats make a beautiful midground, and the sky a beautiful background, though the blue is a bit too saturated for my taste.

I would crop off the bottom of the image, almost back to where the branches in front of the boat begin, so the boat is really the star.

The title is "Abandoned Rowboat" and cropping would takeaway that feeling.   Posted: 01/10/2021 09:30:43

It's a great shot. It's amazing how these iPhones can keep everything in focus from front to back. I love the subject. I think I have a few abandoned boats in my library too. They beg a tale that only your imagination can complete.   Posted: 01/10/2021 10:09:39

Well composed image. It reminds me of my childhood vacations in Minnesota and my favorite fish story. But I digress. I would like the bottom cropped to put the boats at a third vertically. Good bringing out of the boat colors.   Posted: 01/11/2021 09:59:48

Beautiful image. Raw shooting in the I-Phone has given all the details. Nice composition. Your post processing looks good. You have brought out all the details in shadow areas. I feel the right side trees can be a little burned. The blue color on the sky is a little over saturated.   Posted: 01/16/2021 12:39:20
