You're welcome. It's a nice shot. I like it.
I guess a subtle vignetting can help for the tunnel effect.
Let's give it a try.

I think #3 is sharper with just enough contrast to reduce the flatness that Ordo has done. Big difference from your #1 shot. Well done taking the criticism and doing something positive with it.

Of course, you can always work with the most important fact of a pick: proportions. Here's a version with the Golden number on the vertical. Hope you like it.

Hi Bynx/Ordo,

thanks for the help and your insight. Always glad to see a different perspective.
I like your last version.

Hi Simple,

thanx for taking the time to comment and the kind words. The Orton Effect is intriguing to me as I've seen some very compelling images using this effect.
I thought I'd try this image of the Poets Walk as it had a lot of structure in the trees and lots of color because of the leaves.
With the suggestions I got from Bynx and Ordo, I think the finished product looks pretty good to my eyes.

I've since tried a bunch of different images and really haven't come up with any that is as interesting to me.

Good luck with it and do post a sample or two for us to look at.

Zig

Love the shot, 1 is my fave, it looks enchanting , fairytale like. The second and third shot look colder to me. I have red/green colour deficiency so it will look a lot different to me though. Love it, love it, love it.

Hi,
Thanks for taking the time to look and comment.

I too liked the first one until I printed it out on Satin paper 13" x19". The bright green on the leaves in 1st image almost "burns" your eyes out. It is that bright.


The last image, when printed the same size, is the more compelling image-IMHO.
