nice compositions. the first one would benefit, i think, from a bit of brightening - it seems a little dark. the second is better, but could still stand a bit of brightening and perhaps a little more saturation to make the colors pop...

Hi ecap.

Great potential in these photos. In fact you've captured them well. But yes, I agree with squirl, some tweaks could improve them. I'd say some more contrast to benefit the background of photo 2, and saturation in both. Maybe some highlight / shadow to even out the darks / lights.

The 2nd photo's composition / idea is great, but I'd like to see a bit more to the left of the barn, as the barn is facing that way. The photo feels (just imho) a bit too much "cut off too close to the left").

But still they are lovely photos. Thanks for sharing and asking for input. We all can learn and improve. That's the beauty of a forum like this with many friends and several very knowledgable people around.

Best wishes, and please keep photographing and posting / sharing.

Paul

Lovely scene.. I really love the framing in the 1st one.. it is so rich of detail.. just a bit of light balance needed, maybe... for the 2nd one - I dd love to see it a bit more saturated.. Nice job! Thanks for sharing!

Regards,
Irena
