About the Image(s)

There was a lot to photograph on my trip to the Dolomites last Autumn. I also tried to find photos with my telephoto lens, being different from the regular views. Here is an example. Just a simple composition, but I like the layering and the colors from the sunset. I actually took a bit wider shot, so I cropped the photo in post to get a composition more to my liking (as I did not like the grass in the FG). Too much?

I actually prefer the original crop. The more pano view enhances the layers more by showing more curved lines, in my opinion.   Posted: 03/04/2023 14:35:16

Nice capture of layers! I can go from the foreground to the mountains in the background and find different shapes and tones. I tend to agree with Bob that the more panoramic version enhances the curved lines, even if you don't like the grass. It can be my monitors, but I would open up a little bit the foreground.   Posted: 03/06/2023 17:52:44

I would vote for the original, too - it has such a sense of wide horizons, and a perfect balance. You might even crop off part of the grass at the bottom? The graphic design with the exquisite hues of the layers blending into each other is lovely.   Posted: 03/08/2023 09:33:27

I also vote for the original with a little crop off the bottom. The colors in the sky are magnificent.
I particularly like the way you have composed to show the hills rolling from left to right   Posted: 03/09/2023 11:23:32

To me the original image appears to contain more layers and balanced on both sides. The colors and tonality change from the foreground to the sky look nice. I also prefers the original photo.   Posted: 03/19/2023 10:49:57
