Pineapple Fountain, Charleston, SC by Norm Solomon

About the Image(s)

I took this image in early morning when visiting Charleston a few weeks ago. The image was processed in PS. I used sky replacement to help with what otherwise was a somewhat bland sky. It is a magnificent fountain and I wanted to try and emphasize the subject by having the sky surrounding the fountain `blend in’.

You are directing us up the middle to this beautiful fountain in great light with framing trees and a wonderful sky. A very pleasing image. The light under the upper level of the fountain is extraordinary. You have replaced the sky and if you will be exhibiting this image in PSA recognized exhibiions, all content needs to be your own, so it needs to be your own sky, not one of the Photoshop or any other app sky.   Posted: 05/06/2022 19:29:09

Thanks Stan for your comments. I appreciate the information about PSA rules but I wasn't planning to enter it in a PSA exhibition.   Posted: 05/07/2022 05:05:41

Hi Norm,
Breathtaking! The fountain, colors, and trees create a perfect peaceful, calming image. Your choice of the sky adds the finishing touch. I would frame it and hang on my wall. Love it.   Posted: 05/10/2022 12:07:31

A picturesque fountain with nice lighting on it. The shutter speed you have used has given a good effect to the water. Then you have added a sky, that is well chosen as it fits well with the rest of the picture   Posted: 05/16/2022 07:24:31

I am new to the group so please take this for what it is worth. The sky treatment is pleasing from a color and tone aspect. However, it does appear to have mountains in the background. Not sure those are within sight of this piedmont landmark.   Posted: 05/23/2022 08:41:00
