This one was more noticeable, I think, because of the white of the water closest to shore and because the water lines funnel our eyes to that spot. Since so small, I just used a combination of darken/lighten and clone to do a virtual straighten (below).

As far as my own shots, at the moment I can only think of ones where it's more obvious that the shore recedes, or are different issues altogether (for example, edge distortion from wide angle). I'll think further ;)

Yeah, but did you see the horse?


Oh oh, I missed it. Frank does this stuff with animals. You should see his beach scenes with the pigs in chairs.

I love it!

That helped resolve it. A case of mitigating the perception of something rather than a real thing. Lots of times that does help, rather than clinging to the captured pixels...

Thanks Ernst. This one was as subdued as the chicken house was overdone. When I'm playing in processing, I am always experimenting.

It seems like everyone was having their way with this so I thought I'd give it a go too. It's an amazing image! S-

Always glad to have others show their edits of my photos. I get ideas from everyone, what better way to see through others' eyes? I like this version, less muted than mine, and with more life to the yellow aspens.

I find it educational to work with other people's images, I think its the lack of attachment that I have to my own that lets me see objectively!

What's interesting is that I didn't touch anything but the sky and the brighter color water by brushing in some depth. I darkened it a little but not much.

I'm happy you like it and appreciate you letting us give our perspective! S-

I think those steps gave the impression of increased contrast, which made the yellows stand out more.

It's a good lesson to learn that when you change one thing it can change another! S-
