About the Image(s)

At the International Crane Foundation in Baraboo, WI, all 15 species of cranes from around the world are exhibited in natural surroundings. This crane facility started out in the 1970s with the mission to save endangered cranes, like the whooping and sandhill cranes, which are found in the midwest and wisconsin. Today the foundation works with partners around the world to save crane habitat for breeding and along the flyways, and educate local populations.

International artwork depicting cranes is also displayed, including this frame with hanging Japanese origami cranes. Some of the grasses were not helpful for me getting the best angle. I added some brightness/contrast and vibrance to the image.

This round’s discussion is now closed!

:) I have been there several times. I helped run a festival for many years near there. We donated to the foundation (and other local community groups) every year.
The color and depth are good, considering the angle you had to work with. But the grey wall reduces the depth effect, and the black poles (especially the one in the center) make it hard to see the image as one continuous photo.   Posted: 11/09/2023 18:41:12

Interesting image, but real hard to look at. That set of black bars right in the middle of the image keeps me trying to divide the L/R image at that point. I haven't downloaded the image and looked at in SPM as it should work just fine then. When I get it focused WOW! there's a lot of origami cranes.   Posted: 11/17/2023 14:02:32

Interesting image. The image has nice depth and sharpness. The center black bar is the main distraction makes it difficult to look at. You can split the image into two images at that point. I think the left side till the present mid black pole may look better.   Posted: 11/26/2023 01:08:01

Good concept. The grassy backdrop unfortunately takes away from the overall image and stereo.   Posted: 11/26/2023 12:19:01

Some very interesting origami but the scene is dominated by the grasses but interesting nevertheless.   Posted: 11/28/2023 14:47:33
