The photographer is looking for generalized feedback about the aesthetic and technical qualities of their image.
A scene from my daily hike. I like the layering effect and the fading colors in the fog.
Any advice appreciated.
Canon R5; 100-500 with 1.4 Tx (I’m generally out looking for birds to photograph and was not in a good place to remove the tele-convertor and the design feature of the lens with respect to the tele-convertor is its only drawback) at 420 mm; 1/800 at f10; ISO800.
Exactly my initial impression Allen; lovely. I’d clone out that prominent dust bunny so it doesn’t detract from that beauty.
Very lovely! Wonderful colors and detail and the light is so pretty.
Oops. Deleted original and replaced sans dust bunny. Thanks for the heads up, John.
Wonderful image. Love how the fall colors, trees, et. all fade in to the fog - Ditto on the layering. Also that layering is also creating some depth to this scene.
Hard pressed to offer any suggestions and I have no nitpicks.
Something about fog… Well seen; great job isolating this intimate scene with the long lens.
What a transition from bold to subtle. Really lovely. I like the way the layers are compressed together from the long lens.
In addition to what others have said I like the overall warm quality of this image.
Allen, Add me as a sender of accolades for this wonderful image. I ditto al the others comments. One question: Do you think the saturation of the foreground orange should be reduced a tad? The image is great as is, and I appreciate the layering and diminishing color, but raise the ideal of lowering the saturation as just a thought. Nice mood here too.
Thank you, Larry, for your kind thoughts. For some reason the colors this year in the fall foliage were spectacular, much more vibrant than I can ever recall. Probably could decrease the orange saturation a bit, and maybe, even the brightness. I’ll play around with it. Thanks again.
