About the Image(s)

Barrels at St. Augustine Florida.

When I visited St. Augustine, Florida several years ago, I took this photo. After doing a Zoom on Black and White last week, I created several Black and White photos. I chose this one.

I have been very busy with Photography and Bridge on the PC. A great learning time.

Composition and black and white make this photo look like something from the old west. Nicely done.   Posted: 05/06/2020 14:19:37

Very nice composition and sharpness. Ropes and barrels are very interesting to follow their curves.
Perhaps not quite level and a bit too bright?   Posted: 05/10/2020 15:28:53

Thank you for your comment. When I leveled the barrels the main post was slanted so I stayed with the post being upright. How should I level it? I thought it might be a bit too bright.   Posted: 05/10/2020 18:04:00

Here is my shot at it. I rotated right 1.5 degrees and backed off the brightness a bit. As for the problem of the posts vs. the barrel tops, I do not find the off-vertical posts a bother, but am disturbed if the barrel tops are not level. But everyone has their preference on this.   Posted: 05/10/2020 19:14:33

Very nice that draws one's attention to the barrels.. Love the texture in them, as they indicate age and mystery...Only thing that bothers me a bit is the overly bright sky and bushes...I know it's very difficult to darken or tone down such a sky, so perhaps you might consider replacing it with a darker sky...   Posted: 05/17/2020 15:02:14

Yes this is a great B/W image and definitely speaks to the old days of St Augustine History. Great subject.   Posted: 05/18/2020 14:07:29

I agree with Shirley about the sky being too bright, you can use a graduated filter in LR. In all is a great BW.

not a user of LR. But will try the graduated filter in PSCC. Thanks.   Posted: 05/19/2020 19:35:34
