About the Image(s)

No Swimming, was shot on Belle Isle state park in September of last year. I did not do much with the image, I always felt it needed something to be more interesting. Nikon D750 Iso 200, 70-300mm, f8 @ 1/500 sec

Nice picture but I agree with your assessment. Not sure what to focus on you have three distinct areas of interest the house, the bridge and the dragon all of which could be a picture unto itself. The other option is to select one as the focal point and make the other components the children in the shot. That sky really did not do you any favors. I like the picture because of the possibilities.   Posted: 02/11/2021 14:29:06

I agree with Samuel's comments. My first reaction when i saw this was to wish the dragon could be turned around to face the nice, colorful bridge and lead the eyes to it and then the house.   Posted: 02/11/2021 15:19:49

I'd agree with the thoughts noted above. There are three things of interest and picking out one would be good. The dragon could be a real winner caught closer and from a different angle. The red bridge is also a winner.   Posted: 02/12/2021 13:05:27

A beautiful sharp image, Ron. I agree with Samuel that the sky didn't do you any favours, but we work with what's there! I would like to have seen the image taken from nearer the bridge looking either back at the dragon or using the bridge as a leading line to the building. Perhaps the bridge coming out from the bottom RH corner. However, by the way the shadows and the reflections are going I think you may then have been looking into the sun.   Posted: 02/12/2021 23:46:14

The image needed something. I did not have a good sky at the time. I added the sea monster to add a humorous touch to the image.   Posted: 02/13/2021 21:35:11
