Early Morning Loch Ard
« on: February 27, 2020, 06:32:35 pm »

Taken in the middle of January on a wonderfully soft and gentle morning. Loch Ard is 30 miles North of Glasgow but could be on a different planet. Ken

Mood and colour is very nice: why is the sky part not included- would maybe even better?

Shooting into the sun and the sky is bright and featureless cloud and just forces the viewers eyes upwards. Darkening it down enough to stop this and it just looks false. Ken

It works beautifully as it is. No sky needed, for me at least.

I take your point about white sky, Ken, but I think a tiny bit more would improve an already fine shot. The trees seem to me just a bit too close to the top of the frame.

It is your photo and alone you can make it as you wish. I was just wondering if there would be something ugly above your photo.
thanks for showing it!

This was a 2 shot horizontal Pano with little space above taken in a hurry as the light and the canoe looked great. I then took a multi shot Pano in vertical mode and have space above and below so will process that and see how it looks. I may just clone the hill above the trees onto this image as I rather like how this one turned out. A glass of wine and Photoshop, more entertaining than the tv. Ken

Sky and more of the hill above the trees plus sun shining on the right hand trees. The colour balance is probably different as I am just doodling with my laptop. Ken

my eye goes to the snow and the clouds. Looses the focus on the lake and trees.
Original framing is nicer to me my eye. Maybe a content aware replacement of the snow areas to reduce the need for sky ?

Initially I thought I'll like the first but the more I look I find it harder to decide.
