I'm going to shamelessly bump this thread with the B&W version of this image. Hopefully this can get me some feedback. If these suck, I want to know why... so please start shooting!
the black and white doesnt do much for me, but the color one is stunning. only gripe is that the trumpet isnt as vibrant as the sky and statue.
white objects can be really hard to shoot, and i see plenty of detail in yours. great job!
Thanks, chammer. I was wondering what to do with the angel's right hand. Clone it? Leave as is (i.e., cut off)? Thoughts?
I prefer the color version. I think for me though, I'd prefer that the entire hand be visible at the bottom or else not have it in there at all.
Thanks, Carol. I'm receiving opinions for and against cloning the half-hand out. I suppose there's no right or wrong answer to my question...
Edited version (without the right hand):
Isn't this 'from below'?
I like the above edit much better...
I like the edit. I think it works much better without the hand because without it the image seems more complete. With just the half hand it felt a bit incomplete, if that makes sense.
yes, the edit's good. it feels weird though cause i know what's supposed to be there. but if i'd seen this one first and then been shown the one with the hand i would say this one is better. agreed with the above comment about the trumpet. dodge that horn!
the edited one is very good. :thumbup:
the bw version has wrong sky management and the shadows look too dark
Well, it's the brass section from above... shot from below
It does make sense. I would feel a bit incomplete if I had half a hand too
No dodging from me. Don't even know how to do it!
This gave me a good chuckle and I appreciate you for that! I don't do sky management, I'm just a guy with a camera (not a photographer) (Welcome to the forum, btw)
Thanks EVERYBODY for the feedback!
