G'day all

Been reviewing some images from a few years back & came across this one that I like - maybe you will find it appealing as well




As always, feedback welcome

Phil

Phil, This image is a nice composition. A little dark and soft for my liking though. The color tone of the lighting is nice.

Thanks Jehan for your feedback

It is one from a place in the Northern Territory called 'the Devils Marbles' and was one of a series I was doing across outback Oz where I was taking pics within 5 minutes of actual sunrise ~ so that the colours were only the rich red one gets during those first few minutes

Hi Phil!

Wow, I really like this one. It really did hit the light just right, didn't it?

I would echo wingman's comment that on my end it's on the whole a bit dark (though that might be my crummy work monitor talking). I'd be tempted to bump up the exposure just a tad but I suppose you'd be losing what it was really like at the time.

G'day mate

Thanks for the comments - there are 2 things that come to mind
a) I like images about -1/3EV as they seem to show better saturation, and
b) as you point out, our monitors etc. are different and there's no way to compare notes side-by-side

However, here's another one for you to contemplate ... and I have lightened it a bit too



How's this one?


Phil
