It was a nice feeling after having experienced the early snow in Norway to get back to Autumn in England. This was shot in Windsor great park a couple of days ago. Which one of these 3 shots from the same tree do you think work best if any? (no cropping, sharpening , just a slight curves adjustment done) Comments welcome Jean-luc
I would like a combination of two and three. Number two for the location of the swans and number two for the inclusion of the tree's roots. I don't really care for how the tree is cut off in number two.
My feeling is to go with number three. I like the tree much better in it and you still have a good view of the swans. In fact, in number two, those small overhanging branches are right over one of the swans.
Thank you Diane, Ron, Alan, Stanley, Scottie and Dan for commenting. Most people preferred #2 because of the positions of the swans and as Scottie says the tree as in #3 with the swans as in #2 would have been the preferred one. I could certainly clone out the branches in #2. In fact I was trying to attract these swans , but they were not interested and disappeared very quickly. Jean-luc
I guess I am the odd guy out because I prefer one. I love the tree in that shot for me the swans are a distraction because the tree is the focus when I look at all three images. My wife thinks I'm part wolf and descended from Druids so I suppose I don't see things like most peoe! Hahaha great shots never the less!
I will say if you want the swans to be a large part of the image I prefer their placement in two but the tree of three.
Thank you John. Just for your special request: I was just in the process of learning the new context-aware move tool in CS6: quite incredible, so decide to give it a try to move the swans out of the picture. I am also looking into building actions for framing using drop-shadow and emboss, so it gives me the chance to practice. Being half wolf, I am surprised to did not want to have the swan ! Jean-luc
