    I stuck a feather in front of a sunset shot and liked it. What you think?

    Conceptually I like it. I like the colors in the first one; very monotone. However, I think the gunk on the feather ruins its serenity. Which depending on you might or might not be a good thing.

    The second one has great color but it also has more noise. Gives it a non-photographic feel. With the first one the noise make the picture softer; witch is kinda of nice. But in the second one it's a bit to much, in my opinion.

    Of course these are just my opinions and I not much of an artist myself.

    I prefer the first by far. I think I would like it more if the feather wasn't covering the sunset quite so much - it gives me a kind of agitated feeling like someone standing in front of me when I'm trying to watch TV :)

    The first picture for me. I like the idea, good thinking.

    Very cool idea, I like the first one best - the more subtle look works for this one.

    Nice job!

    Agree with the covering of the sun... If you try it again, maybe try to get a thinner wisp of the feather covering the sun, instead of the thicker parts.

    I like them both about the same... just depends on what mood you're going for... scroll up for happy and down for sad...
