    destruction.........


    im upset about this, very upset. i have done a lot of my shooting here in these woods. i snuck out here one day when the bulldozer guy left and snapped a few.

    i added a strong yellow tint to both. i liked it myself. what do you all think? which is better?

    i dont like the yellow tint on the first one at all. but i think it works great and the composition is great on the second one.

    Its a personal taste I know but I really dislike the yellow tint. I am not a big fan of a lot of the artistic treatments like this one though so its nothing personal. I actually think this could look quite good as a B&W conversion though.

    I agree - I think the yellow is just too powerfull in the first shot, but it works well in the second. Though I don't really know if the yellow is the right colour tint or even if it is needed, but then that is your choice.

    A shame the site was bulldozed!

    Actually I like the yellow tint on 1 because it gives it like a bio-hazard feel to me and with the bull dozer you can feel the destruction when you look at it. That's me atleast.

    I would prefer natural colours. That D8 ? would make short work of all the trees I have planted in the last 35 years.

    ron, it was upsetting knowing how long it took for those trees to grow to the size they were and that single bulldozer had them leveled in about 3 days work

    here is the natural colors. i dont know--you guys may like this better, but i just thought that the yellow breathed a little life in the photos

    As suggested above, I thought it would look better in B&W, so since you said its ok to edit your photos, I took a shot at it:

    Very nice composition, mabye just a bit overexposed on the top half, but it looks great in B&W I think.
