Misty morning in Ciwidey by Anges van der Logt, PPSA

September 2023 - Misty morning in Ciwidey

About the Image(s)

When looking through my photo database I came upon this photo I quite liked. It from quite some time ago, so I run the camera raw Denoise on it before further edit. It is a morning shot with mist in the valley around the tea plantations near Ciwidey in West Java. I used the two trees to the left and right to frame the shot. The mountain frames the top.
Any comments or suggestions?

I really like all the layers in this. I know you purposely used two trees as framing devices, but the tree on the left is fairly large, and it almost acts as a breaker to moving into the image. I did admittedly a quick Content Aware, which left some defects, but I wanted to see how it looked with one tree. I think a view like the adjusted image invites one into and through the picture. Of course, that is just my 2 cents, and you certainly have a nice image as is.   Posted: 09/07/2023 17:16:23

I like the layers of the image, and the title is well depicted, the mist and the clouds look pretty. I also feel that the tree on the left side is a bit too big, if you like to keep it as a frame with the tree on the right side, I suggest to reduce it in size by PS.   Posted: 09/07/2023 23:59:19

I love the picture as it is with the 2 trees acting as frames. I always try to capture layers in my landscapes, and here you have done so perfectly. The mist in the valley and those wispy clouds in the background make this a winner in my eyes.   Posted: 09/08/2023 10:42:32

Hi Agnes, I think that the frame works perfectly, and the light that makes the shades of green glow is lovely. The sunlit patch in the foreground forms like a corridor of light to the center of the image.   Posted: 09/08/2023 14:02:55

Thanks for all the comments and input everyone! I think I also like the version without the tree at the left better. There was no way to avoid when taking the photo, but now with AI in Photoshop I am able to delete it from the image..   Posted: 09/14/2023 02:35:08

I like the mood of this photo, enhanced by the composition and the rising mist, with the mountain in the background. I can find several layers within the picture, which gives a sense of depth. All works well for me.   Posted: 09/19/2023 17:15:03
