    I was just bored and messing around with Lightroom settings. What do you think?

    Edgar Allen Poe would've found worth in this picture IMO (mean that as a compliment), I think the colors and the lighting evoke a feeling of loneliness. The only thing I would suggest (as far as composition goes) is to include the whole tree in the shot/crop.

    I like the mood of it as well! I don't like that the tree is cut off, though :( I wish I could see all of the tree! Nice mood you put out for the photo though!

    I have a different angle that shows the whole tree but I don't like it quite as much, I'll post it anyway to get your opinion. Thanks for the feedback though.

    I think getting alittle more behind the bench and having an idea where its overlooking could add something to the photo as well...still including tree of course!

    I kind of like both but I still like the first better, what do you think?

    I like both (but the first one more).


    I have to say, it was not quite what I was expecting based on the title (that's good)... :lol:

    I do like the wider shot, but I still like the first shot more (would love it with the whole tree ;)). The angle it's shot at gives the picture a much better story IMO.

    I like the original crop and really don't see it as an issue. The processing gives what otherwise (to me) would be a boring shot some depth and mood. Well done :)

    The first one has great color and a much better mood to it. The second one with the whole tree isn't too bad, but now I see what you mean, the one you originally posted is much better. You get the color of the grass, whereas the one with the full tree you don't see a lot of different color... it's all the same.
