Today Stroll with "The Bench II"
« on: January 17, 2010, 02:13:41 PM »

Hi guys, today itīs rainy here but also foggy and so I got to take some "remakes" from pictures they take me unsatisfied at the first shootings.

The Bench, Iīve taken with f16 and coloured , the first version was taken with f6,7 and B&W

My eye keeps going to the bench and the water.

What happens when you crop just below the shoreline at the top and take just a bit of the snow off at the bottom?

Itīs not a good idea I think,  because the tree is an important factor for my Photo .

There's romance in the bench photo, atmosphere in the old man and humor and intrigue in the donuts!  I like all three.

Rob

I love the bench one - the warm wood colour is a great contrast to the overall coldness of the blues and greens.  And the centred composition works well.  

Had I been taking the shot I might have got down a bit lower so that the foreground (Bench and snow), middle ground (lake) and background (trees and shoreline) fell into a more "correct" 1/3 1/3 1/3 arrangement.  But it's your shot and I like it.

Thank you for feedback  

Hi Ed, the angle I used was the best in this terrain, itīs  much hilly there, I lay down on my knee an look through my angleviewer (the right word?) , behind me a tree and bushes at the left and the right . So Iīve done my very best for this perspective , and my knees are sick at the evening because I old mule must take they in the snow

Powerful composition IMO.

Flattered to know that we were thinking on the same lines!  Even though you couldn't get lower for the composition it is still a very good shot indeed.  Sorry about your knees - you are suffering for your art!
