About the Image(s)

The attached image I shot a couple weeks ago in Allegany State Park in New York. This was our first time going there and it's absolutely breathtaking. This particular shot is from a small picnic area around the outskirts of Red House Lake. Shot at sunset on my Canon R6 at 24mm 1/250 F/6.3. Lightroom used to brighten the shore area and some of the shadows in the mountains. Clouds dehazed a touch.

Looks like a great place Alex. I like how you have framed the shot with tree on the right and how the mountains left and right draw my eye to the sunset then back to the table and the interesting roots on the ground. I see nice detail in the entire frame and you have achieved good color saturation.
You might consider cropping the tree trunk on the left out and as a suggestion for next time I feel that someone sitting at the table would make the shot even better.   Posted: 09/11/2021 07:40:00

Very nice composition and light. I widh IO was there. It seems so peaceful. The light brings out the roots on the left and the table too. The star burst is a plus! Nice reflections. That table is just asking me to come sit a spell.   Posted: 09/11/2021 17:19:18

Looks like it has be well used because of the packed down earth and the roots showing. It is a very peaceful scene. This image would be enhanced by person sitting at the table looking out or down by the waster looking out. Would you consider cropping a bit on the left side? The sunset is handled well.   Posted: 09/11/2021 18:29:22

Very good composition and well done! I would suggest cropping the left tree trunk as it will not affect the overall picture.   Posted: 09/11/2021 21:09:05

Beautiful serene scene. I find very inviting. I think Mark was thinking he wishes he was there which is the first thought when I saw it. That would mean that someone at the table would have blocked my view, so I like it the way it is without another person.   Posted: 09/12/2021 12:46:07

Alex, Beautiful image. I too wish I was there right now. I love the way you have the roots lit at the right, great leading lines. You are leading me into the image. Going to the picnic table to the beautiful sunset. I would crop out the bottom of the tree on the left.   Posted: 09/15/2021 10:38:08

Thanks everyone for your comments! I will definitely crop out the tree on the bottom left if I end up getting this printed or if I end up using the digital for anything. Thanks!   Posted: 09/15/2021 10:54:23
