Ryan,

How would you crop it?

Mik-EY,
When i get on my other pc (Home) - i will give it a go.
All ready thought about it.

1) crop the left tree out - wait ...include the fence line.
2) crop the right building just so you don't see the vertical corner
3) crop the top down just a little (last) - to fit (rules of third as a guide-only)
4) crop up to the shadow on the fence line....

Did you crop this picture? is there more we are not seeing?
Later,
_Mark

That'll be great Ryan - I look forward to seeing it. No, I didn't crop it in any way - it's as it came out of the camera

Here is a crop ... it would be cool to have other shots from that moment.
Tweaked: (all in jpeg)
-crop
-WB - lowered kelvins - 150 - 200-ish
-added very slight saturation
-dropped shadows in curves w/ medium contrast.
(wish i had a RAW of image)

Mikey
I like this alot - very cool grab. :cool:

i had a little more fun ....
Notice WB was off - reduced kelvins by ~400
and cropped a little tighter to get rid of satellite dish.
changed contrast from linear to medium
added pinch of saturation and clarity.....

(On web - noticed palm is a little dark)

I want that for my wall

I think that's a great shot. Very dramatic.


- I discovered I scream the same way whether I'm about to be devoured by a great white shark or if a piece of seaweed touches my foot.
