All comments are welcome
Minnie, The frame and matting distract me from the photo. The photo is striking enough in its own right; Ernst's frames seem more muted and less obvious and his photos more moody than this housescape. I like the strong, almost stark, contrast between the colors, very much like calendar art, if that was your intent. Very playful. Don't think you need a pano; as I visualize it, it would make the image too thin and linguini-like, (whatever that means). Matt
Thanks Matt. Yes, it was meant to be over-strong, in a playful way for sure.
Just to be clear, this is not one of Ernst's frames, it is an example using a link he shared recently for a free online "framer".
I realized it was not one of Ernst's frames. Very successful playing , Minnie.
I just posted another beachscape in Landscape & Scenic. Let me know what you think. Matt
