About the Image(s)

I took this photo with a focal lens 17mm, 1/60s, f/7.1, ISO 100 on Sony A7RIII. Post editing is very little using Curve adjustment, Brightness/Contrast Adjustment. Original picture format 16x9 and I cropped it.

To my eye you have correctly captured the colors of this fall scene. I feel that the sharpness and depth of field add to the quality of the scene.

Every image needs a fixation point where the viewer's eye can flow to and be held. In my opinion with this cropping you have created strong lines with the tree trunk and horizontal branch that move my eye to the upper right corner. I think you are taking me away from the heart of the picture in the center. For me I clearly prefer the uncrossed image.   Posted: 11/05/2020 15:15:52

I like your photo, like Gary I think the cropping took away the heart of the picture, the depth! The Branches at the top tend to keep my eye there, not float back into the depth of the picture, like the original. Wonder what it would look like, if you were to keep the original image and lighten the area where the bench is located. Even though it is deep in the photo, it might draw your eye back through the trees. A persons eye goes to the brightest spot, so if lightened it might just work. just my thought. love the picture, the color in the original is nice and can stay strong.   Posted: 11/07/2020 00:50:47

I like the hazy, foggy yellow effect created by the leaves on the trees and ground. The bench draws attention to itself, which is ok, but would the image benefit from its removal? Do like the sky in gray tones? What if the sky was more of a soft blue? Adding a pattern of highlights using the dodge tool at a low setting might add interest?   Posted: 11/11/2020 16:22:51

Beautiful color but I favor the original deeper yellow. I agree that the sky at right is distracting so I would have opted for a vertical image of the left side, which would center the eye on the bench and the pathway through the trees behind it. IMHO, a square image lopping off the closest and dominating branches at top would give you a delightful fall image and cutoff most of the sky. What a wonderful place!   Posted: 11/21/2020 11:51:50
