    I thought Tuscany was about lush greens (at least during spring), blue sky, fluffy white clouds. Maybe it is a cliche but that's the way I like the pictures from Tuscany; the almost monotone/sepia treatment does not work for me at all here. Moreover the ground is a bit underexposed but that might be a matter of personal taste. In terms of composition, I would prefer to see the complete house on the left side.

    Steph thanks for your thoughts, sometimes I like cliche too and the house on the left was connected to another building that didn't look good...Anubis thanks...I haven't seen that movie yet.

    Right from when I first saw this photo I was thinking Steph's thoughts ... but that is just me and the colour green. Those who have known me for a while on here know about that colour and me ... and the :lovey: there is ;).

    So while I appreciate your wanting to leave the path of the cliché, here in miss that very cliché...

    Good take. I think you depart from the cliche gracefully. It wasn't desperate, and it works. In fact, I think it is a good complement to the "happy green" cliche. Not that I believe in duality.

    But you should work on the quality of the image. Use a polarizer filter for the sky to make it more dramatic. Currently a great majority of the sky is blown out. Also the composition is too busy, look for another vantage point that is more simple.

    Edit: I'm making myself sound too confusing. I meant it worked in terms of the feel you're going for.

    Corinna I have picked up in my short time here that you are partial shall we say to green, so I can see how this rendition doesn't appeal :)....phototron I did use a polarisor but the process I used to do this image washed it out and there is no other vantage point for this direction. Here is the original image for cliche lovers ;)

    Use mask during your process then, I'm assuming you're talking about photoshop.

    no it was an action called Platino effect, it does a digital representation of the Platinotype print. I was trying out the effect on different files and quite liked the effect. Regarding masks it's next on the list of PS tasks to learn.
