Morning Fog on Blind River
« on: May 27, 2014, 05:52:36 PM »

An amazing sight just as the sun made the horizon. But not sure what way or how much to sharpen. So far it's got P.G. capture automatic and creative narrow edge 1 with some 'diluting'. Maybe this is a case of 'no picka' da fruit ?
Critiques most welcome !

I see the attraction here. It can be challenging to capture the subject that first drew the photographer's attention. Maybe a longer lens would have brought the fog closer and left out the foreground. One strategy is to first identify the subject and then use position, focal length and various landscape elements to discover a pleasing composition.

Hi Scott,
Thanks for your suggestions. They are much appreciated.
I was trying for as much soft and fertile mood to the scene as there could be. It's the uniqueness of these Louisiana wetlands. I'm trying for as wet and primordial a view as possible, and not the 'Hollywood alligator with it's jaws open kind of thing'.
Guess I have more work to do !

For me the brightness of the water at the bottom is a distraction from the nice fog higher up. I would be tempted to crop about 10 or 15 percent off the bottom.

Or, if you don't want to crop (and losing the reflection would be a shame), try darkening the foreground.
