Hi bahadir!

Yes, you definitely have a point... the sky crop does well, but the tree / background area to the right of the tent is too nice to cut off. So, taking into account this, I've made this edit below (for you!)

Initially I hadcropped the foreground grass part (before the tent) quite "tight" (close to the tent) because there were some tree shadows creeping into the picture on the grass, and I thought that was more distracting than helpful (see the above post where I left the shadows in).

So I cloned out the shadows - maybe this works better (oh yes, I increased the contrast a bit too!)

And FINALLY, here is my last edit (at least for today!)

With shadow cloned out of grass AND tent cloned to left.... I think this is in the end my favourite.... all be it through a process of input from helpful folk (thanks guys!) and "try and learn"!

Let me know if it works for you... but I'm quite happy!

In the first place, I must say, I appreciate your outstanding effort, Paul, which turned out to appear as a success story we've watched concluding with your final edit.

HI VP!

Thanks for looking! Indeed, technology can do amazing things - and create amazing photos... even such "clever" edits!

Well, I'll consider tucking the tent under a tree.... or maybe include a UFO just for another special effect! :-):G

Glad you like it!! Cheers

Paul

Hi Mr M!

Sorry.. but believe it or not.. I don't speak much Romanian (I use Hungarian and also Dutch and English for my work!) Though my local colleagues know Romanian of course! So I'm guessing you're asking where the photo was taken..?

It was taken near Lake Lesu, in the remote mountain area between Cluj and Oradea... maybe you know it.!? All the best

La revedere

Paul

Hi Bahadir,

Thanks for encouraging me along all the way!! :-) It was a fun little "picture edit" project to do.

And indeed, it's great to see an end photo get "tweaked" and worked to a satisfactory outcome. Thanks again for your thoughtful, constructive and helpful comments. Always appreciated.

Have a good week (and by the way, your English is good!)

Paul

Hi there! I like the "thirds rule" where the tent is on the right. Moving the tent and copping the sky changed the picture so much. It is amazing at how just doing that changes the whole feel for the picture.



I feel trying different things with shoots is the best way to get that "great shot!!":G

Hi Hokiegirl,

I guess you mean "where the tent was on the LEFT" ?? Anyway, yes it is great how with digital imaging one canchange, enhance, and "play around with the photos" quite a bit toget it "just right"(or at least "better"!)

Thanks for your comments.

Paul
