I liked this shot out of the 3 sugar loaf creek photographs that you posted. It has a more effective composition than the other 2 with less distractions, and layers of water streams leading the eye to the top 1/3 of the frame. The polarizer and the details on the rocks add depth to the frame. This would have been a perfect image had the background trees not been cut in the middle. I would have tried to move left to remove them from the image. All said, this is a great photograph. Very well done!
Great composition Ralph! The 'layers' of mountains, and the cloud formations are very impressive. tfs! -Tunc
Hi Roger, I was immediately drawn to the still reflection of Alcatraz when I saw the thumbnail! "What time of the day could he have possibly taken that photograph?" , i thought to myself!!
Great photograph to start with and impressive post-processing work. I like the sailboat and the lack of contrast on the background. It really accentuates the main subject. I may have used a bit of gaussian blur on the reflection to make it more natural but again that would take away the first visual impact.... It's a wonderful image and idea! I'll check out Scott Kelby's tips... -Tunc
Beautiful deep colors Allan. I like the composition with the 2 rocks and the coastline. A wider aperture setting (smaller f-stop) could have worked here as well. Great photograph nonetheless with impactful highlights on the rocks and the shadows in the background. Tfs! -Tunc
Wonderful photograph Faramarz. Great texture and details on the foreground rock. I'm not sure if you used a grad filter or a polarizer but the exposure is well balanced, and the sky is a beautiful saturated blue. The 10mm lens is so wide that it's really a challange to make impactful compositions but you've managed it very well here. TFS! -Tunc
Wonderful composition Musin. The line of tea farmers lead the eye to the center of the frame. Very creative use of the infra-red filter makes for a painting like photograph.
Wonderful landscape photograph Saeed. The composition and the complementary tones are great. Well done...
great composition and tones, Edwin -as always... The tight crop worked to isolate the rock in the foreground. Tfs!
Excellent "blue hour" tones Daniel. Strong composition with the river bank leading the eye to the bridge. THe arhces serve as natural frames as well. Great photograph as always!
This is definitely a winner Karen! Beautiful composition and colors... I really liked the composition. The vines are aesthetic leading lines through out the frame. The white lamp surface contrasts with the background and focuses attention. IMHO, the frame is distracting rather than complementing, but the thin blue line certainly complements the orange tones. Great job!
