When I first processed the two shots of this structure I preferred yesterday's, but having had a few days to think about it I think that yesterday's has the edge. Both are ok, but I think that I like the subtlety of yesterday's in preference to the higher contrast of this shot, or maybe it's that this one is rather similar (in terms of colour and feel) to cardboard beach. Either way, I'm reasonably happy with this one.
I disagree with you David, I like today's much more.
After seeing both of the pics though, I have to admit, when you post a picture of any subject there is no longer a hope for anyone else to even try and capture the same thing and present it. Congratulations.
Great as well as before,
I'm a sucker for high contrast and deep colors. This is my favorite of the series so far.
I prefered cardboard beach for its natural horizon pull, based on the rule of thirds. This one looks great framed by my windows application, but or at the top of the comments section, but if it were up on the wall, my eye would feel drawn down too heavily.
The colors and saturation deeply appeal to me. It doesn't look overdone, instead merely like a gift from the Father. Beautiful.
I also like the firm shape of the water beacon peaking out from the horizon. Strong shot.
I'm amazed by the colors!
I note #1 and #2 were taken onlya couple of minutes apart and the only significant(?) difference is -2/3EV between them.However the colours are VERY different. #2 appears to have been taken a number of metres to the right of #1 and looking more to the west towards the setting sun.
Is this the only difference or have you processed the colours more in #2?
lovely. I am surprised though that you didn't straigten the beacon to be straigt up. awesome colours.
David, I prefer the placement of the horizon line on cardboard beach. Somehow the placement of the horizon line doesn't really work for me on this one. I love the colors and the structure. But, imho, this image is dissonant, if you understand my meaning. Nice job on the others though, keep 'em coming. :-)
Adrian: yes, on both counts. This was taken as the sun dipped below the horizon, around the base of the structure, and I processed this one to accentuate the red and orange of the sunset.
owen: in this instance the lean is mostly natural.
The colours of this one are truly stunning. Great capture!
I prefer this one - I like seeing more of the sky, less beach and the colors are absolutely stunning.
I much prefer yesterday's picture, actually: even though I generally go for deep saturation!
I think it's the blue that disturbs me a little: it just feels a little 'unbalanced' (topheavy?) somehow, the blue seems to draw attention away from the fiery colours below (which are perfect!).
Like the composition, though, with the leaning tower.
Simple, but beautiful
awesome gradient, good job
Although I prefer yesterday's shot to this one, it looks much better with the black theme skin.
Really great shot, David. Beautiful. I like this more than yesterday's.
That color gradient is unbeatable! Such a wide range of color and so clear and vibrant. Wow!
You should really consider selling some of your prints as postcards. I know I'd send some of them back home if I was ever in Blackpool. Cheers.
Cool shot - the lean on the mast softens the image - very nice colours as well dave.
I prefer this one to yesterdays, the colours are just more striking, i like the lean of the post too.
Very nice light and colors, well done David
The colours in this are amazing. Did you adjusted the saturation of this image?
~less is more, indeed...~
i like this "nice title" thing :)
but the transparancy does not work on internet explorer.
you could add
filter: Alpha(Opacity=70, FinishOpacity=70, Style=2);
on the style sheet. and it works well :D
great photos. i don't get tired of visiting chromasia at least 2 times a day
this is a great image.... the lighting is incredible, and the composition is perfect. thank you.
Very strange... very beautiful...
wow! the sky in this pic looks like a huge rainbow!
Excellent. You are very talented.
So beautiful sunset landscape.
Aye Aye, gorgeous colors here. You set the bar so high.
Simple and beautiful!
