About the Image(s)

The Driftwood Beach is on the sea island of Jekyll, one of the “Golden Isles” on the Atlantic coast in the state of Georgia. The Driftwood beach is about a mile long and a wonderful location for photography any time of the year.

I like simplicity in photography and this one fits the bill. The lines, the tones and work well here. The ship in the background is a bonus. The ship stands out more in the color and I think it might be good to make it stand out slightly more in the B&W as it took awhile for me to notice it. A little more contrast would make it pop also.   Posted: 03/03/2020 12:12:09

This is a beautiful image. The composition and isolation of the tree are great and the tones are wonderful. The focus is sharp from front to back and the sky has a wonderful mystical quality. When I look at the tree I see an eye and a mouth, giving it an organic, surreal quality. I would remove the ship to increase the surreal feeling.   Posted: 03/07/2020 11:56:40

Jerry, this is a very beautiful image. I like the approach and your angle, perspective makes this image stand out. I dont like the ship included and would prefer it to be cloned out! A little bit of tweaking the horizon would help. I would also prefer to clone out the drift wood behind the main element as there is an overlap. Still beautiful image.   Posted: 03/11/2020 01:43:22

This is a photographer picture and has been composed well and I love it, but if you have a spare torpedo and could sink that ship this image would be real magic feel.

Well done, Jerry. It is a very nicely done composition with fine tonal consistency as well as pleasing separation from back ground to subject.   Posted: 03/16/2020 11:33:48

Very nice and sweet image.
The design of the tree is great. I am attracted by the hole in the tree trunk, I have the impression it is an eye and it is on a vertical third ...
Concerning the ship, I have 2 opinions, namely:
- yes in the color image as we can see the different parts (sand, water, sky, ...) and the boat has its place.
- no in the B&W image has the separation is less obvious. In this case, the tree is the subject, and the boat is quite disturbing. This is (only) my opinion.
Be Patient and Careful.   Posted: 03/26/2020 08:56:05
