About the Image(s)

Here is another image from our trip to Arches National Park. This tree is near Double Arch, which is also very cool. But in waiting for my husband to get out of my shot at the arch, I turned around and saw the amazing side lighting on this tree. I also liked the textures of the gnarly tree, the leaves and the rock wall in the background. Even when you're focused on one subject, always keep an eye out for other possibilities!

This is beautiful photo. I believe if reduce the color of background it might look more comfortable for eyes   Posted: 10/07/2020 09:13:18

Very nice photo. I agree on reducing the color - or the brightness of the background. It will help highlight the green of the tree. I think the dark vignette takes away from the sharpness of the photo. I think you can crop a few inches off the top.   Posted: 10/07/2020 09:25:23

Agree with the comments above The brightness of the background reduces the illusion of depth. But it is an image with great potential.   Posted: 10/12/2020 10:54:51

What a cool place and an amazing scene to capture.

I have to agree with the assessment of the others regarding the brightness of the background. To deal with it, I used the HSL tool to adjust the brightness of the individual hues for both the rock face and the bush, then did a fair amount of dodging and burning to try and bring out more dimensionality in the scene. Thoughts?   Posted: 10/16/2020 13:54:06
