About the Image(s)

This image was taken, while on a deep Amazon Jungle River cruise in 2006. The cruise originated from the Peru side of the Amazon. I cropped from the top and bottom, to bring out this young man gliding down the Amazon. You have the reflections of the green reeds ,reflection on the brownish waters of the river, as well of the reflection of the dugout boat and his bright red shirt and the paddle he has in his hand. I feel the colors of this image all blend in.
It was taken with my old Canon EOS digital T1i camera with the settings of: f/9; 1/500sec.; ISO 200 with the lens set at 300mm.

I would do a closer crop if it is still sharp. I do not think all that green adds anything.I would remove the reflections as I think they are distracting. If they were sharp it would be different. I wonder why he is looking down and back.   Posted: 09/06/2020 16:00:50

You might consider reducing the saturation. His neck and face are very red as well as his shirt. I too believe the reflections are distracting and a closer crop would improve the composition.   Posted: 09/07/2020 17:42:50

A tighter crop and reduction of the red channel might help. Otherwise, it looks like an image worthy of publication in the National Geographic magazine.   Posted: 09/09/2020 17:52:24

I just noticed the original. I think you should start over and keep the original color.   Posted: 09/09/2020 18:17:45

Here is the image with the original tone, But one problem if you enlarge the image above the 300mm lens used, the sharpness is gone. I used the original color, and must agree with you the color looks better.   Posted: 09/13/2020 13:52:54

The original is a better image Stuart. I do like the duct tape on the bow.   Posted: 09/16/2020 15:44:19

I agree with the comment about the original. It is a good shot but needed a little contrast. The edited version is over saturated. Cropping a bit would also brings more focus to the subject.   Posted: 09/16/2020 22:02:06
