I’m so sorry this one has taken so long to get to provide feedback – I had to join the Canon Facebook group first before I could see the image! That took a couple of days to get approved and then I just forgot to copy the image over to my website and provide feedback.
I am so glad I got to it today though – this is probably the best image I have seen from you! Very, very, well done. I love the colour toning on this – it the slightly muted colours works really well. You’ve ticked the boxes in terms of composition – rule of thirds and repetition. The reflections of the building in the background work really well and the panorama crop is perfect for this image. As I was there that day, I know that there wasn’t much detail in the sky, so your decision to crop it out, was the right one.
If I had a nit-pick with the image (and it really is a nit-pick) I would perhaps have like to have seen just a fraction more of the mountains – but I don’t know how much more you could include while still keeping the white sky out of shot. So that really is a nit-pick.
Thank you for sharing the image! You can be justifiably proud of this shot.IanButtyAdmin21 September 2018 at 10:09 pmPost count: 69
Having just seen the original image in the Facebook group I would not crop in quite so tight as you have here. Instead, I would include just a small section of the mist at the top of the image. Probably about the same height of mist as the distance between the red boat and the bottom of the frame. That should create a balance between top and bottom.Garry GabbitasCommunity Member22 September 2018 at 8:29 amPost count: 24
Thanks for this Ian, it is most helpful.
I’ve re-edited the original bearing this in mind and left a layer of must above the buildings.
The final image isn’t the same as the one above, as I haven’t been able to replicate it. I’m still learning editibg, and can’t remember the settings I used (or even which app it was).
Basically, when editing I just make adjustments until I like the look. I suppose it will come with experience that I will know how to create a specific look.
