About the Image(s)

It's everything you can get when confined on a balcony. Taken January 16/21 afternoon, after a long (too) night and day of rain. The only good thing is that by the time I grabbed the camera and was ready to shot the sky was changed again. I have a full sequence in regard. Camera Lumix G9: lens Vario 14-140mm; focal length 22mm; f/9; shutter speed 1/320; ISO 3200. Exposition, contrast, luminosity, shadow, etc. PS/LRc.

For me, it is the beautiful sky and the light that is the hook in this image. I find the magenta in the foreground distracting. I toned it down and added a radial spot to the buildings on the right side, cropped a bit from the top and added a slight S curve.   Posted: 02/03/2021 23:25:35

The sky is really beautiful and I think that Art's submission for change is right on. I, too, found the magenta a bit overpowering and hat "highlight" to the buildings is an added plus.   Posted: 02/04/2021 07:37:13

Gabriele, the sky is what is attracting me in this photo, so strong and beautiful and the magenta foreground is very distracting to me. So I darkened the sky, cropped the bottom and softened it all for a way different approach.

Beautiful Sky indeed. To improve this image I would try to clone or lighten the left corner.this dark large spot distract my eye .And yes the foreground color doesn't seem natural. cropping and darkening the foreground might help too. You have a very nice view here .   Posted: 02/12/2021 17:03:18

Gabriele, this is an interesting picture and the sky really stands out. I agree with the other constructive comments everyone else has made, although I would probably also clone out the birds flying in the background. They seem to be distracting. Nice picture.   Posted: 02/27/2021 12:26:14
