About the Image(s)


Happy New Year to everyone!

This image was taken last November at Huntley Meadows Park in Alexandria, VA using Iphone XR. This artist wears a face mask when painting the beautiful scene of autumn. Although Covid-19 cases hit high in VA, this scene gives me a sense of normalcy amid the pandemic. People try to adjust to a new normal of their life.

I enhanced color and sharpened the image using Snapseed.

Exif data: Iphone XR, ISO 25, F/1.8, Speed 1/1900.

This tells a poignant story. I did not focus on the mask immediately, perhaps because they are becoming so 'normal' my mind has become accepting of it. I like the composition, and your use of fencing creates a nice leading line. The park offers beautiful seasons. If colors in the trees and grasses can be enhanced for reds and golds, the scene might be bolder, but even as is your story is told. At first I believed a tighter crop would be better to show more of her painting. But, I think you might only need to crop the sky to bring the painting closer. Happy New Year!   Posted: 01/07/2021 09:21:37

Composition, sharpness and colors are spot on. Note the moon in the sky. The mask will remind people of the sad times we are all going through and the scene that the lady is painting shows the beauty and hope of the time... Good job!   Posted: 01/12/2021 08:16:57
