About the Image(s)

My goal was to make this image kind of magical with the viewer’s eye following the
Pathway of stones into no where. The original image had way too many distractions.
I darkened the image and dodged the stones in the pathway to keep the viewer’s eye on what I wanted to be the viewed first.

My goal was to simplify the look of the busy image. I hope the watermark is not too bright and distracting.
Comments are appreciated.

The water mark is fine.

Your goal was met, it really does appear magical and leads me in looking for a fairy or troll. The lighting on the rocks is great and the overall lighting creates great DOF, so makes it feel like I am right there.   Posted: 05/05/2022 14:01:58

The bottom of the image with the path is very strong and leads you into the image beautifully but it does get very busy at the top specially at the size we view at. Viewing much larger the image does come alive and that path becomes even stronger.   Posted: 05/16/2022 05:04:05

The pathway in B&W is just great. Good treatment. Well done.
When I look at the 2 pictures at the same time, my eyes go to the B&W.   Posted: 05/18/2022 08:33:49
