    Terracotta Army - C&C welcome

    Last November, my parents and I took a trip down to Epoct in Florida. While we were there, I took quite a few pictures. Some of them have been tickling at the back of my mind to revisit them and edit again.

    However, I am torn on these two images of the replica Terracotta army. For some reason, I like the more skewed image - perhaps because the warriors in the background are still visible. The more level image seems to be a little nicer though, especially focus wise.

    I understand the point you are making, Kim, but I feel the skewed image is too skewed and doesn't 'feel' balanced. Whereas the second one does.

    Hi Kim,

    I prefer the second, but feel you probably didn't need to lose those heads in the top right corner, I'm sure a bit of cloning could have filled that triangular gap in the canvas top left after rotation.

    The sharpening on the second is good (giving the better focused look).

    Best Regards,
