A or B; or C (trash it)

Unread postby Juanito200 » Fri Jan 07, 2011 4:14 am

I took this the other morning on the way in to work. I liked the fog, and the different tonal layers. Let me know honestly what you think, and what I should do differently. Or as the title suggests, forget about it and move on. Thanks in advance for any and all C&C. John

If the last thing you remember hearing is somebody yelling 'CLEAR!!!', assume you've had a problem!!

I've always had a fondness for foggy day images, so I like this. FWIW, my personal preference is for your second image.

With best wishes,

I like the second image also, but the tree needs a little more detail (local "Clarity" on LR)

I'll take C. I like the background more in the first, but the tree is too indistinct. Put that tree on the other background and you've got a winner!

Thanks guys- @Tom we don't get too much fog here so I grab every chance I get. I'm glad we didn't have any early cases so I could be a little late to work!!
@Pako- I don't have LR it is on my wish list, but I'll have to wait a bit. I should be able to use the 'magic lasso' in PSE 7 and accomplish the same thing.
@Dusty- I like the first background better myself, so I'll give it a try. I do feel that the second one is somehow more mysterious...
I'm going to try some more this weekend. Thanks for the input guys! John

In the first shot the fog has a mystic feel while in the second it's more harsh and ... brrr, it feels cold.
I'll go for the second.

Here is what I promise will be the final version of the photo..... I changed the brightness and contrast on the tree.. Thanks to all for the help on this and every other image I've asked for help on. It helps me quite a lot. John

In my eyes this is definitely the best of the three versions - but don't forget that my opinion is worth what you paid for it. :wink:
