About Alternate version of previous image. The square image in intentional (goes against traditional notion of landscape, but I prefer the image this way ;)

Muchas gracias, Txules! La verdad es que el premio me gusto. Pero se que tengo que seguir trabajando en la imagen igual!

Capaz que con los nuevos retoques que estoy aprendiendo surge algun retoque nuevo para mejorar la imagen.

Un abrazo,

Muchas gracias, Txules!

Concuerdo con vos: debo buscar un grado menos agresivo en los retoques; mucho mas delicado. Me deje llevar por los colores aca ;)

Y si, he visto el trabajo de Hugo y lo respeto mucho.

En realidad, valoro no solo el tiempo sino tambien la compenetracion en todos los comentarios recibidos.

Significa que ustedes no solo se han tomado la molestia de ver mi trabajo sino que tambien buscan ayudarme, y eso lo aprecio un monton.

Un abrazote,

JP

la imagen es fabulosa JP, el atrevido amarillo me encanta, el formato cuadrado perfecto, ahora bien una post-producción menos agresiva, es decir más delicada estaría mejor, Hugo es un gran fotógrafo por eso creo que sus consejos son muy válidos, pero en la experimentación y en el fallo es donde aprendemos, así lo veo yo y por eso no me importa equivocarme; un abrazo

Muchas gracias, Txules! Sabia que, al exponer esta imagen en ese foro en particular, iba a recibir comentarios criticos, y los acepto con bastante humildad!!!

Tengo mucho que aprender todavia, como sugiere Hugo, en cuanto a los retoques de las imagenes posteriores.

Pero con criticas constructivas voy a aprender mucho.

A me gusta la composicion de la imagen; ahora tengo que aduenarme de la postproduccion ;)

Un abrazo fuerte,

JP

Dear Hugo,

Thank you not only for your helpful comments, but also for the time it took to articulate them in such a clear, concise manner.

I admit that I have much to learn about image postprocessing (I'm just getting started, to tell you the truth). In fact, I only played with this image in LR, but think that I can address some of your suggestions best in PS.

Thanks, again, for your frank insights. They are much appreciated, I assure you.

Saludos,

JP

Hi JP,

Just surfed back to your portfolio to see the previous image, and I prefer this one. The square composition, as well as the composition grab the attention. The emptiness makes it rather strong.

I do think, the level of postprocessing reduces the image quality, affecting the appeal of the image rather severely. With some simple masking techniques, the halo between the edge of the hill and the mountains in the rear could've been prevented, giving it a more natural look.

Also, I think the lack of detail in the shadows is distracting, and the rather blotched quality reduces - again - the appeal of this image. I guess you were trying to revive the tones and details in the hills, causing a lot of artifacts, even visible at this reduced size.

Then the sky - the gradient is nice, and I do like the balance of colours, matching the fields in front. Yet, I think a deeper blue tone in the sky on top would add more punch to the photo.

None of these things alone would bother me, as they may well fit within the scope of "artistic freedom" but combined, I feel they degrade the image a tad too much.

Cheers,

Hugo
