About the Image(s)

This was shot a couple of days ago during our (my daughter) brief visit to the Grand Tetons. This is a simple 3 shot bracket which was processed in Aurora 2018. Minor post processing in CC for cropping and removal of some bright spots.

Really nice image. The cross adds a great deal to it.   Posted: 08/10/2019 15:29:16

The tone mapping is stellar here! The mountains look realistic and the tones inside are well done. The cross adds to the scene.

The camera is not quite square to the window. I would also crop out the red cushion/rug n the lower right as well as the vertical in the upper right.   Posted: 08/14/2019 01:03:08

I wasn't wild about the view when I was more straight on and more square. The line up tight bothers me as well, perhaps burn it in a bit.   Posted: 08/15/2019 09:35:47

I like the not straight on because you see the angle of the logs on the right, just burn in the lower right and that window sill line on the right   Posted: 08/18/2019 23:02:42

I tried this one from the back of the room and it didn't turn out well. This one, as regards the lighting and scene is outstanding. The moody day may have helped here in reducing contrasts so the interior looks perfect. However,If there were a way to see how the exterior scene looks with a more contrast, it might add something in addition to what you have.   Posted: 08/17/2019 16:11:58

The blend looks very natural with very smooth transitions. I feel that since we are looking through a window to the outside and there will be a haze effect due to the distance to the mountains, that the exterior scene is on the money. Lisa hit on some of the smaller issues. I don't mid the knee cushion, but it might be better burned in a bit. The highlight on the vertical and on the ceiling beam do tug at the eye a bit and would be worth trying to burn those down a bit more. As natural as the interior lighting is, I wouldn't say no to being able to see into those shadowed areas at the altar a bit more either. All items are small nags on a very well crafted image.   Posted: 08/18/2019 21:37:49

Beautiful composition and good details throughout the whole photo. Beautiful and natural colors. I would suggest adding a little bit vignette effect would add to the this beautiful photo.   Posted: 08/20/2019 18:01:08
