It's always good to see someone break the rules! The backlight really makes the subject glow. I think that a little crop might help - there's a distracting black bar on the right, and I don't think that the bottom 10% or so adds much to the image. I think the image is strong enough to really go to town with over-processing in many way - I've had fun doing all sorts of things to it - here's faux-HDR try.   Posted: 05/18/2023 11:28:00

I like your crop better that the original. I also enjoy the faux HDR...makes it look like a painting. Not sure about it, but very intrigued.   Posted: 05/19/2023 11:27:43

Bollin - I just played around with 'HDR Efex' - I used the 'Dark' preset. The original NIK software is still available free if you search for it, eg:   Posted: 05/20/2023 03:05:23

A wonderful backlit image with good color, lighting, and composition. I like the adjustments Brian made, all of the light around the edges help focus the eye on the window.   Posted: 05/19/2023 09:55:04

Thank you. I agree about how Brian's changes help the eye focus on the window.   Posted: 05/19/2023 11:28:45
