About the Image(s)

I wanted the look of early lumber camps on a small scale.
Processed in Snapseed:Black and White, tonal contrast, portrait, crop, & healing brush, then added a frame.

Nice Dick, did you swing the ax and split a few? I sure like the B/W version over the color. Good choice.   Posted: 04/05/2021 14:17:29

I did not split a few. I split a lot! And I still will have plenty of exercise through the spring and summer.   Posted: 04/10/2021 09:07:05

BW was a good choice for this subject. My eyes go to the ends of the cut logs since they are bright. The included axes suggest the work that's about to take place. Nice capture. If you wanted a more aged look, I might suggest adding a bit of grain and a vignette.

Since I'm on my desk top now these suggestions may not apply for our group but I think they could be done with the apps we use. So I cropped, converted to B&R and then revealed the red in the lower layer to keep the color of the axe handle.Just another was of looking at it.   Posted: 04/10/2021 13:49:43

I like that treatment Sol. Is the B&R you converted to Black and Red? Where does one find that?   Posted: 04/11/2021 08:17:52

Oops! That was a typo. Should have been B&W.   Posted: 04/11/2021 14:27:30

I like how you cropped in to isolate the logs and working area. I agree with the others that the B&W was a good choice. I can't see the frame you said you used so perhaps a more ragged frame would work better. I don't envy you the work that is ahead of you.   Posted: 04/11/2021 15:41:44

Ahhhhh firewood and a good photograph . Talk about a win/win. Like Sol's idea of isolating the red ax handle. Now let's see a photograph of you relaxing before hearty fire with hot chocolate or glass of wine, both well deserved.   Posted: 04/11/2021 16:24:36

Clearly needs to be a red wine, preferably a zin!   Posted: 04/11/2021 20:16:45
