There's nothing wrong with yours but wondered if it would change the mood if we removed the dark area at the bottom. Always experimenting! S-


Did it change the mood for you? I agree with Minnie that if I couldn't keep experimenting I'd toss my camera into the swamp (or maybe under the wheels of a hops harvest truck, lol) but do please finish the thought with what, if anything, the crop did for you. Inquiring minds!

Something about the dark area felt like an anchor and kept dragging me back, but at the same time it gave a sense of place and balanced the light above.

The more I look at the two I see why you shot it the way you did, but I still think it was a good exercise to help me learn to see. Thank you so much! S-
