About the Image(s)

I took this image with my phone. I was walking my dog and saw this canal and the scene seemed like a serene bucolic view so I couldn’t resist taking the picture.

Good placement of the stream, it divides the land portion of the photo into two triangles. Hiding some of the bright sun generates shadows in the lower right hand corner. Overall, a good catch.   Posted: 11/08/2020 18:59:28

Well seen. Your eyes follow the canal, a very serene mood. I might lighten the shadows along the canal.   Posted: 11/20/2020 12:33:07

Nice Composition. Can you take this photo into Lightroom or Photoshop? if not there are apps for phones that can do some basic tonal edits. After adjusting the shadows and light. you might find a program that adds starburst and put one on the tree where the sun is reflecting off the leaves. That would give the image a strong focal point.   Posted: 11/21/2020 23:26:13

Well composed, but it is a work in progress. You need to lighten the shadows and darken the bright patches.   Posted: 11/30/2020 14:22:33
