Default Instead of.....

Another full shot of a field of tulips, I opted to try to present it in a different way. I know I've been schooled by some here, for my work being too dark.....I dunno, it just appeals to me for some reason. With that, I offer you guys this to consider, honesty with suggestions GREATLY appreciate

I titled it: Tiger in a cage (the wire fencing is to keep out the deer who love young tulip shoots)

Because of the low light it is (at least for me ) difficult to attempt different ideas.
In your case, I think that you should try this same shot, but using different light angles/degrees of illumination. Might surprise everyone.

I think the background is ok so in PP on this version I brightened everything up

Yo Muskie......your re-work seems harsh to me. Here is another longer exposure of the same, perhaps you find that to be a better one?





I'm not trying to be an arse here, honest, but I bet you prefer something along this field more, showing the same scene just pulled away some, yes?



Thanks for your response

i like the photo of the field 100% more. The close up just isn't doing anything for me; the lighting seems flat.

I agree that I like the colour/brightness in the wide shot more - just a bit too dark and flat in the first one. Once you get to the wider shot, the fence and background become more of a distraction though, so change the idea behind the shot.
