About the Image(s)

This was taken today and must be my fastest turnaround from taking to sending to this group. Technically, there are two things but only one of each.

I was on a walkabout and visited a monument on a hill with great views over the surrounding countryside. As I was leaving, I looked back up the hill and saw this family (dad and a couple of boys) walking across the hill.

What I did:
As usual, I've kept any manipulation to a minimum
A slight crop
Resized for this Group

Very cleaver find, and well done and clouds add to make this image come alive for which I keep going back to after uploading many days ago.   Posted: 06/06/2021 05:46:19

Beautiful capture and format, with the tree and figure standing out from all of the clouds in the background. Well seen!   Posted: 06/15/2021 10:58:53

You have used various concepts from past rounds: minimalism, clouds and now two ones. Those clouds are eyegrappers but the two dark shapes of the boy and the tree grab my attention.

This month, I have been searching for landscape images to photograph and experiment with monochrome on so tried monochrome on your image. For the monochrome version, I increased the contrast using a gradient map PS adjustment layer and the PS BW adjustment area. I find the monochrome increases the feeling of isolation. From you image, I have a better understanding of what type of landscape images work better in monochrome.

Both color and monochrome versions work well.   Posted: 06/15/2021 16:13:33

Hi Steven, Lovely minimalistic image. wonderful cloud formation but it is the fence line that starts in the bottom left that takes you to the person then the tree, well spotted.   Posted: 06/19/2021 07:30:12

I call that a cool study of vertical and horizontal objects. I like it.   Posted: 06/19/2021 15:20:46

I like the horizon of lines composition. Although the object is small, it can catch the attention of viewers.   Posted: 06/20/2021 00:00:12
