    Autumn Sunset

    One late afternoon at Point Ormond Lookout in April this year.

    A bit surreal! Almost a cartoon type look about it. What processing did you do?

    Re: Autumn Sunset

    I love the composition and use of leading lines, a certain interesting finish has been achieved here. My only suggestion would be that the lamp post in the lower left is a little distracting to me (in my opinion), I feel it would be better if it wasn't there (cropping, cloning, or framing)

    Thanks bud. I used Lightroom for minor exposure and tonal corrections, Photoshop and NIK for local adjustments.

    Really appreciated your feedback Chris! Agree with you about the lamp post, it is a little distracting.

    Re: Autumn Sunset

    I really like this a lot. To me it has a very ominous feel....the calm before the storm. Personally I don't mind the lamp post. It draws your attention to the bottom left. To me it is like the start of a movie showing a scene where all is well.......right up until the zombies come marching over the hill and down the road. Yeah I know....but.... I come more from an arty background rather than photography and it does give a different perspective to things.....I see this photo, for want of a better term, as cinematography and that is exceptionally hard to do in a still format. Its a great photo.

    I love this shot! It really works for me. Great composition and cracking light and colours.

    I too would have left the lamp post in. Personal opinion/preference but I'm not one cloning stuff out of an image if it was there I leave it there or frame it out when taking the shot.

    Really appreciate your detailed feedback!! I also don’t mind the lamp post hence I left it in the original photo. I guess photography is subjective and personal? Some prefer journalistic hence minimal edit/retouch where others sees them as digital arts Therefore their works produced from their vision...

    Many thanks for your comment Nate! It is one of my favourite photos.

    that's exactly right. there is no right or wrong, and comes to personal preference.
