Irena, these are lovely pictures just as they are.In some cases,however, some people would prefer not to seea subject dead center in the frame, so I hope you don't mind that I tried cropping theese twojust to see how they would look (theremay beother ways to do them, too). In the first one, the horizontal branch cuts the picture in half, so I rotated it so the branch touches one corner - there wasn't quiteas much background for the rotation as I would have liked, so the crop is a bit tight. I also sharpened each image a little. This is not meant as a criticism, just an experiment. What do you think?

Penolta, just my opinion (and that's all it is) - I like how the first one came out with the rotation and a bit of sharpening, but think the second one looks oversharpened/overprocessed. It's hard to crop and sharpen with a small jpg like that and it might have worked better with the original. I'm not sure how I would have cropped the second one - I think I would have been more tempted to just leave it alone as one of those that "works" with a center subject.

Hi!

Thank you for sharing your idea, penolta.. but this time I'll say that I prefer both pics in my original versions.. they both were meant to be with a central subject focus..

About your editing.. to me they both look oversharpened.. uncomfortable to see.. about cropping - I do understand what you mean.. but I have a load of other images shooted according to the rule of thirds in this series.. so no wories... I expect the rules when I want to.. making the most out of camera and less PP.. it's just about a choise of pics to be posted here..

Thank you one more time!

Regards,

Irena
