    The elements seem to be there, but somehow this one is a little shy? Love the yellow chairs. All in all maybe a little confusing to the eye. Let me know your opinion and improvements.

    that was my first thought, it being confusing to the eye. When it loaded my eyes went bezerk. Heh. Kinda exhilerating, but a bit of a strain. I sort of have mixed feelings on this one. Generally I like it though

    Thanks!!!!! I shot this on continuos thinking at some point the chairs would be perfectly aligned. Never really happened. Not a lot of yellow chairs on the slopes. That may be the photos only redeeming quality.

    I can see the bright yellow chairs competing with the beautiful snowy landscape here.....I too, went a little bananas when I 1st opened up the photo.

    It is beautiful scenery :)

    Maybe it is over sharpened?

    What strikes me is how blue the left side is in comparison to the right side, maybe if you edited that part to be more white, the colors would seem less confusing? Just a thought.

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos OK to edit
    The one thing that stood out to me was how busy the left of the photo feels in comparison to the rest. My eyes wanted to start with the chair on the right and then be lead down the the lines to the left, but something gets lost when I get there.

    Hopefully that makes some sense?

    Good call omeletteman. In my infinite wisdom I did not notice the blue on the left side of the shot. Yikes. I converted to cmyk. Lightened the cyan and magenta channels and darkened the black channel. It definitely helped the photo. "something gets lost when I get there" is a good way to put it Chase. This frame is asking for a reshoot.

    i like it. i see two things you could have made better. the blue pole that got cut off bothers me. its slanted and cut off. i also think it would have been cool to perhaps get a shot of hte chairs coming up towards you. :thumbup:

    Thanks! In some ways I agree about the crop. Snow King has a lot of weird fall lines. Some how the shot is deserving of being crooked. Too bad it is not very pleasing to the eye.
