So simple, yet so beautiful! (Is this from Barnsdale?)
Not quite, it's right outside my back door at home. It's almost how I'd envisioned it, but I might do a re-shoot this evening with the netted frame over the pond lifted out of the way (that's the thing just behind the chair legs).
Good call to remove the pond cover in the reshoot. But will you get the light reflecting off the fern and decorative grass leaves as nicely? Let's see!
I'll give it a go in a bit. This is what it looks like when the sun is out
What an oasis! Love it!
Difficult to believe it's only 9m x 4.5m isn't it.
A revised version - still not happy with it though - getting back to CS4 would be good.
I personally like the first better than the second.
I enjoy the effect of the higher contrast with the subject matter - makes it seem more like a place to get away to.
Like the chairs - they look like a great spot to have a tea and think!
^ I agree. I like the first better than the second. Second one seems to bright and washed out IMO. as for the pond netting, I didn't notice it until you pointed it out.. it's not overly noticeable or distracting
Third time lucky perhaps
Pardon me for taking a liberty but would a little more contrast change your interpretation of the picture?
