I love this image. There is so much going on and the story is compelling. I like the textures and shapes with the complimenting colors. To me your post processing works very well but given the situation, I would tone down the saturation a bit of the foreground and work to use the sea mist as a frame and mood device. I like your crop and in my opinion your depth of field works well. I did use a graduated filter to bring down the exposure of the distant sea and also removed some texture to blend in the fading distant water. One thing you can grab, this image has multiple postprocessing options and, in advance of other ideas, I think yours is completely competent. Very nice image and will post a version using Topaz Studio II using a paint brush filter. This first one is how I say the image   Posted: 07/09/2021 17:58:34

Thank you Kurtis for showing both of your versions. I like your thoughts and the way you worked with the sea mist. But, must admit I prefer the Topaz version, it seems to give the photograph more life! Thank you for your kind words.   Posted: 07/28/2021 15:38:55

I think this is a good story telling image with a painterly feel that brings added value. I like how Kurtis pushed it even further. I tried a different approach to draw attention to the artist by cropping, using burning and a color gradient.   Posted: 07/10/2021 15:20:02

I think your version of this picture really highlights the painter as he is working. I had not thought about adding a blue/purple gradient. Just by doing that the entire picture has an entirely different look. Thank you Art!   Posted: 07/28/2021 15:57:56
