About the Image(s)

This is the ‘Pope's Cross’ in the Phoenix Park. It’s hard to get an original shot of it but I like this one. It was taken on an afternoon walk within our 5k limit. I like the rim light on the people but not sure what else I could have done with it. Taken on my Canon 70D with Tamron 16-300mm lens. Basic adjustments done in Lightroom, a few people cloned out in Photoshop and Luminar 4 AI Image Enhance at about 60%

I like the way you handled the light and left enough people to tell a story. Cropping works, though I wonder if the tree on the right (or part of it) should be kept from symmetry.   Posted: 02/08/2021 18:36:41

Nice capture. Good improvement from the original. I agree with Rusty that adding some of the tree in from the right might help.
It needs something - just not sure what......   Posted: 02/08/2021 20:38:00

compelling image where the size relationship between the cross and the people tells the tale well. The cross is not quite straight.   Posted: 02/16/2021 11:05:48

Wow! You positioned yourself just right for this image, placing the sun behind the cross to give it a powerful glow.

I had a go at removing the tree on the left, the people at the foot of the cross, and cropping it to move the cross off-center. Thoughts?   Posted: 02/20/2021 14:04:53
