About the Image(s)

Was setting up this photograph when my husband walked by and snapped the picture as think he enhances the scene but maybe biased. Liked using one of the old porches of building at Fort Hancock, Sandy Hook National Park, New Jersey, to frame abandoned officers quarters in the distance. Passed photograph through Prisma App for painterly effect.

You framing is a perfect way to get a strong image to start with. You husband walking is a great interruption which makes the image even stronger. I really like both images.

By the way. I would like to recommend a book by Scott Kelby. "The iPhone Photography Book". It is kind of $$ high priced at $17. but really worth every penny. In one section he takes about just what you to make this great image. He really has some great tips and a few I have started using and love. One is go to settings - camera - View Outside the Frame. Scott turns this on ad leaves it one all the time. I have done this and love it. This shows you what is above and below on a vertical and on both ends on an horizontal photo. You quickly see if you need to recompose the image. It is a neat tip along with many others. It comes in paper and Kimble. Jerry   Posted: 04/05/2021 14:33:19

Very nice example of framing a subject. The tree and your husband are well placed in my opinion. It looks like an interesting place to visit and it must offer many photo opportunities. I will add that I think I prefer the original in this case, but it's just a personal preference.

I like both images, but probably have a slight preference for the B&W. Having been to this place, I like that the artistic version puts the image in the past in a way that the color image does not. Lovely capture and vision.   Posted: 04/10/2021 09:17:46

It strikes me as a B&W penciled version which works very well, indeed. The human figure adds perspective but this image might work well even without him.   Posted: 04/10/2021 13:56:38

I love you composition and your husband walking into the frame is a bonus. I prefer the artistic B&W version. For me it reduces the image to the important details and simplifies the composition. Well done. I just checked Amazon for Scott Kelby's iPhone book and it's $29.95. A new one is coming out in June that you can pre-order.   Posted: 04/11/2021 15:57:00
