I would also like some critique and/or opinions of this one.
I like it. Nice colors and a simple & effective composition.
It look a little odd because the road & front lawn are on a slant though.
The castle stands out quite nicely from the sky...it almost looks as though the sky has been digitally dropped in.
nice colors! looks like a neat place to live in. photoshopped sky?
the sky was photoshopped, as it was a very hazy day. Since I probably won't get a chance to go back anytime soon, I dropped in the sky.
Here is the original as it came out of the camera before the people were eliminated and the sky as it was.
The photoshopped sky certainly makes the castle stand out a lot better than the original one. For me, I'd like to see the road cropped out. It doesn't add anything for me, and the colour just seems to drain the bottom of the picture.
to make a better sky you can download a free program called terrigen,
This is a skybox I made in about 2 min
And this is what it looks like in your pic
Not to bad, and the good thing is you can do anything you want with it, make the clouds dark or light, low or high, thick or thin its your choice!
I like that. I downloaded that Terragen software to play with later. I have been using a filter from Xenofex2 called Little Fluffy Clouds but haven't used it enough to create a background that is realistic enough to pass for a photograph.
I think the "original" photoshopped sky looks better then the terrigen one.
One think that is really distracting me about the photo (and I didn't work it out until I saw the actual original) if the cloning of the lead couple - my eyes get drawn to that point immediatley
well done on the rest of it though - my attempts at this normally look more like a 5 year old's finger painting
The sky pops out at you at first, but at second glance looks really fake. You should at least make the sky darker, as that is what the reflected light hints at.
The fake sky makes it kind of funny looking.
I am amazed. The original photoshopped sky is just the "noise" feature in photoshop... and I didn't notice it till it was mentioned.
Why did u remove the pigeons?
