Hards80,

Thanks for your fast reply. Thought I'd try square format, but in this case 3:4 perhaps is better.

actually i replied before the pictures were attached, i was just making a joke.

i prefer the 2nd format as it emphasizes your subject a little better. i am not against the square format, but maybe a tighter square format could work.

when i first saw this, i thought it would be a good candidate for a black n white conversion since there is very little color anyway, and with black and white you could go for a little extra contrast and really emphasize the form and lines inherent in this type of scene.

thanks for sharing

I do like the second as it seems to emphasize the vertical lines of the stems. The white is a nice contrast to the darker areas.

Regards

Hards80,

(I was just testing the square format to see how it filled up the space. With often large monitors ...)

Yes, to all . Haha, there is a college level Photo School under the Gothenburg University in my town. You have to send a printed portfolio for judgement and choose one picture for a webb presentation.

A 100% white image pleased the "judges". Don't know if there was any data in it. That guy got accepted. Don't know if he's making any money on his trade

bluenose,

Thank you. Glad you like the picture. Caught any fish lately? Tried drilling holes in the ice for fishing?

Last fish were caught (and released) in September just before the end of trout season. Hopefully no ice to drill through for a while yet.
