November 2019 - Autumn Whorl

About the Image(s)

Goal: I set out last week to get an artistic image of my new Gingko tree in its Autumn colors. I stood several feet from a leafed branch, aimed my lens up into the leaf whorl, and snapped the shutter.
Technical: Canon 80 D, Tamron 16-300 mm lens set to 300mm.

Nice one. I like the center in focus slowly working its way out of focus as my eye moves outward. A slight vignette might be worth trying to further bring attention into the center.   Posted: 11/05/2019 19:30:52

The composition of this is wonderful and really works! Technically, you've captured texture, the subtle gradations in color from greens to yellows, and incredible depth--it all works so well together, truly! That one sideways leaf is a bit of a distraction, but not enough to bring down the lovely impact of this image. Great capture!   Posted: 11/10/2019 11:20:19

Wonderful image, Judith. I like it a lot. My only nit that it needs to be a bit darker at the edges of the frame to keep our eye within the image. My eye particularly want to wonder over to the left. A vignette, as Mike mentions, would help keep the viewers eye within the scene.   Posted: 11/10/2019 12:56:01

This is a fun image with swirls leading my eye through the center. The colors work well together. I find the right side clear but the far-left side is a bit soft. I'd crop the left just a bit to balance the image.   Posted: 11/10/2019 19:21:20

I find the colors very pleasing and feel like the swirling lines brng me right to the center which looks very well focused. I think the brightness on the edges, particulary the left and also the fact that the left side is failrly soft are issues with this image. I would slightly crop on the left and add a dark vignette.   Posted: 11/12/2019 12:06:54
