Slow Shutter Water

Post by minniev »

More from the old mill falls in TN, again handheld since I was tripodless on this trip. Thoughts appreciated esp crop. I did crop a vertical sliver off the left to eliminate the edge of another tree, didn't know if I needed to take some off the bottom as well.

Looks OK to me...might clone out the bottom two rocks, for some reason my eye just stops right there.

Looks good to me as well...I think that the composition is excellent to OUTSTANDING with exceptional depth!....The eye’s journey is well guided from lower foreground all the way up stream, up the falls, behind the boughs, and to the distant upstream area. Well done! AND I like the two stones in the foreground because they enhance perception of “where the viewer is standing” that, to my mind, is an essential in many such images.
IMO this is a Composition 101 teaching set illustration!

Thanks Frank.

I wondered about the rocks but I am prone to keep little anomalies and eye botherers in there. I claim they are like punctuation in written stuff.

Oh I knew you would not remove them, was just an alternative to cropping them out which I knew you wouldn't either....

Thanks so much Dave.

Here’s the marked up image emphasizing the encourage eye path that (IMO) works so well to emphasize the depth

Here’s what those of a more classical bent might suggest as the basis of your excellent composition; the “golden spiral based on the Phi= 1.618 concept of the “golden section”. I do see their point, but in this case consider it a bit of a stretch.
