About the Image(s)

Here is the final version.This was cropped, vignetted and fine tuned (accentuate), and framed in Snapseed. Painteresque and Lucid all were interesting, but overkill.

I like the blue skies of the original. Your call on the cropping. There are so many options and creative ideas on every snap that we do that it really is mind boggling.   Posted: 10/02/2019 10:28:38

I must agree with Jerry about the sky. Blue is reflected in the water, but is missing in the sky which seems inconsistent. The outdoor scene is nice with water, trees, and so on. It makes the viewer want to be there.   Posted: 10/02/2019 11:45:02

You've taken a rather dull image and made it pop out very nicely. The warm colors in the sky don't show in the water anywhere so there is a kind of visual disconnect. The grasses have become the focal point leaving the upper half of the image needing something. Maybe using the Shadow tool in Snapseed could open up the dark trees and create some interest there.   Posted: 10/02/2019 13:31:53

The trees nicely frame the image. The stronger colors in the final issue works nicely. I personally would have left the blue sky, but as Jerry said there are so many options available.   Posted: 10/05/2019 19:22:12

I completely agree about the blue sky. I'm not sure how I missed it. I'll plead guilty to being at the Conference and distracted. Thanks to all.

Interesting how your cropping changed the image to one where trees in background and grass in foreground are more in focus . A pleasing outdoors scene no matter the perspective. Too bad not a couple of fishermen casting flies in water or flock of ducks gliding along.   Posted: 10/16/2019 16:28:52

A very serene and peaceful scene. I like the framing with the trees.   Posted: 10/17/2019 22:38:10
