About the Image(s)

Shot at ISO 400, 1/50 sec, f/11, 66 mm with Olympus M1 Mark III with Olympus 12-100 f/4 lens. Narbone is a very nice small city on the canals of south France. This was the front of a building on our walk from our hotel to the city center.

The architectural brackets and the lamps create a nice symmetry. The colors play off each other nicely.   Posted: 03/12/2023 10:05:43

Hi Stan, The colors and the vantage point for this image are great. It makes me think I'm looking at France during the Belle Epoque! One consideration, perhaps cloning out the `D' at the bottom right might further ground the architecture to a time in the past. I always enjoy your travel images...they really evoke a sense of place.

Your point is well taken. I changed some ugly green color to grey to at least make it not so noticeable. I am not sure there is enough to clone something over it. Perhaps I put something on a layer and erase this off this layer.   Posted: 03/12/2023 17:36:53

Well seen. I like the tight composition around the lamps, maybe it could be tighter with a sliver off the right to take out the small patch of bright sky. That would also deal with the 'D' bottom left.   Posted: 03/17/2023 05:42:43

I really enjoy seeing your travel images. They give me a sense of being there. I think the beauty and symmetry of the lights would be enhanced by cropping some of the right side.   Posted: 03/19/2023 20:48:54

Stan - a truly great image. I would also suggest taking out the "D" sign. Possibly a conversion to sepia might be interesting.   Posted: 03/20/2023 13:37:02
