Fog & Reflections, Dawn, Glacier National Park
« on: December 08, 2006, 02:22:39 AM »

I am always commenting on others' work, so I will put a piece that I am having problems with up:

[attachment=1307:attachment]

I wonder if people could give their general reaction to this image, specifically, whether it comes across as too symetrical, or as lop-sided, given the position of the sun and its reflection.

Hi Larkvi,

Thanks for posting. I love the tones and colors.

I am not disturbed by the symmetry vertical, but feel a certain lack of balance in the left to right direction. The image feels like it is tilted to the right.

Regards,
Bernard

The last person I showed it to also thought it looked like it was about to fall over because the right is so comparitively empty. I have yet to find an acceptable solution, which makes the image feel balanced.

It looks very good to me.  In this particular case, the top-to-bottom symmetry works very well.  After reading the previous comment, however, I also got the feeling of its being slightly tilted to the right.  I also feel like it would work a little better if the moon were slightly closer to the center (left-to-right) than it is.

Those are minor quibbles, however.  It's a beautiful photo.
