About the Image(s)

This shot was made on the D800E with a Nikkor 70-210 at F8 and using a polarizer. Hand held. Cropped in PS 5.1 and some saturation added.
This building has been presented before. Shot it again, yesterday. My reasoning is the change in season, lens, and lighting would establish new challenges, and a different personality of the subject.

At first glance, this reminded me of a greeting card. The scene and warm colors are really nice. One problem I see is the overgrown nature of the trees and bushes that don't have leaves and the building being partially hidden by bushes. I'm not sure exactly where you want the eye to go in this photo.   Posted: 11/09/2019 04:48:20

The polarizer seems to have really brought out the colors and I love the color palette of this image. I think that the diagonal fence drives your eye to the building but the brush does interfere. Could you trim back the brush in from of the horizontal bush and trim back the reddish bushes in front of the house? It might also be fun to do some light painting on this scene. I think you have a very good idea about returning to the scene and trying to get new interpretations   Posted: 11/09/2019 11:20:37

I love this photo; I like the color the old barn, old fence and the creek. I wonder if you cropped more on the right side how it would look.   Posted: 11/10/2019 18:24:57

The Autumn colours in this image are beautifully captured and are very radiant. The Hut is in a nice position and the fence leads you to the hut, but partly that is where it is let down as the viewer is drawn away from the left side and all that colour. A real shame that the tree/bush sits in front of the fence as it breaks the line of the image in a bad way. I quickly played with PS2020 but with more care, you can do better. But it does improve the image removing it, better than an axe.   Posted: 11/14/2019 09:24:20

I thought scenes like this only existed in the minds of painters. It is beautiful. Everything that would make a scene like this sing is there - well maybe a little boy in blue overalls and his dog by the creek - but that would be too much. Yes, removing that little tree does help, but other that that it is perfect. Lovely.   Posted: 11/16/2019 17:25:54

I love this image. Nice soft autumn colors, leading lines, triangles, diagonals, all keep us in the frame. Paul fixed the only issue to my liking, and this can hang in my house anytime. Beautiful capture and post.   Posted: 11/18/2019 11:43:13
