About the Image(s)

Original was taken on the Ring of Kerry, ROI with Canon 5D, ISO 320, f6.3 for 1/800 sec. 70mm focal length.

The image was severely cropped and enhanced in ACR to give a working size file. In Photoshop various cloning steps cleaned the image a bit. In DAP it was first treated with the Camille template and this was blended with the original. While the land looked OK I did not like the water so after numerous attempts I settled on an image processed with the DAP Wet on Wet template which was then blended with the previous Camille/original version. Then lots of local adjustments to get this image.

I like the composition of both the original and the crop. The mountains in the original add an interesting element to the scene. However, the crop is nicely done too. You have a lot of elements of interest: the strong diagonal, the slight curved road, rows of trees and the contrast of the colors. You may want to consider a correction to the orientation because to my eye the trees are not perpendicular and it feels a bit off. However, that may have been your artistic decision.   Posted: 01/15/2022 16:17:56

Your right. I was concentrating on the sea and the road and missed the tilt.
Thank you.

What a great water color rendition of this image; you absolutely excel at creating these painterly images. For me, this images is also all about the excellent compositional "S" curves. Your chosen crop was perfect as it showcased the great "S" curve between the water and the grasslands. Then, you see the additional "S" curve in the winding road, which exactly mimics the water/grassland curve. What beautiful symmetry!! Great job.   Posted: 01/16/2022 13:26:39

It is all said Terry and well done on your vision. My penny's worth will be to suggest toning down on the blue of the sea, much like the bottom left coloring and by adding a few more white breaker waves.   Posted: 01/22/2022 05:29:24
