I was taking the farm's house picture, I showed you in the other forum, when I saw a beautiful hillside with dark green trees and just one was different. From that moment I dreamt about this picture. I did it, as I wanted. Do you have any comments?

Thanks in advance Smile

I am in a quandary here Irma, nothing really jumps out, I agree that the different colouring is interesting in itself but I just can't see enough of the different coloured tree or something.

I'm sure it looked much better in person. Sometimes much is lost in a photo that you just can't see in real life. It is an ok image Irma but I've seen much much better from you.

Thanks Pete and Colin for your comments Smile I really appreciate you thoughts about my picture. Well, probably it was as Colin said, sometimes places loses the charm in a photo.

Anyway, I am optimist and I will say that I am very pleased with the outcome, event if it is not so good. Why? Because my PS did what I wanted it to do. That was learning Smile Perhaps the next one will be better.

Thanks again! Smile
Irma.

I like it Irma. This is a mature photograph. I love the color.

I can see where you were going with this shot even before I read your commentary. That one tree standing out among the rest. However, I think that it falls short in that regard as its really difficult to tell as only a portion of the tree is distinctive. The remainder gets lost in the greenery.

Great idea though!

I like the overall scene. The dead center postioning of the bright tree is a problem - maybe a crop??

I think a tighter crop loses the intended diversity aspect. However, its nicer from a photographic point of view.

Yes, Jerry, I think what you said is something I have to consider in my next picture. The bright tree should have been really standing out from the rest.

Toad, you are right, I didn't think about a crop to have my tree in the rule of thirds.

Thank you very much for your comments/advice. I want to give another try to this concept. Perhaps with something else. Smile
