    Re: Snowy huts

    A bit of welcome colour amongst the bleak snowy landscape.

    Somehow, I wonder if this is one of those cases where a 'restraining frame' around the image would make a real improvement and help to hold everything together. Nothing 'heavy' though.

    Interesting, I thought the same about the frame! I saw it and said, this would look better if it was framed. Then I read Geoff's comment.

    It's a nice photo don't get me wrong, it just needs containment.

    A kind of shot that has been done many times but you got put a neat twist to it - with the snow and that pair with the umbrella. Good eye.

    A very nice image , george. I like it alot.

    To me, this image is about the similarities of color ,in the buildings, and in the umbrella. So why not play on that , with the edit?

    I added some saturation ,to just the 4 buildings of similar color to the umbrella. I also added a couple vignettes to the buildings and umbrella, to make them just a little brighter than the surroundings. Gives you specific buildings to look at, instead of a row of buildings. Just a thought on , one of many directions, you could go for an edit...........................

    Re: Snowy huts

    Hi George,

    I'm not sure why, but there's something that doesn't feel quite right about the image - if mine I would consider "clone moving" the onlookers to be nearer one of the thirds, probably to our right.

    Just an idea,

    I agree with Dave,
    but the picture is very beautiful as it is too

    Re: Snowy huts

    With a scene like that, it is easy George - providing you have suitable software.

    Snowy huts

    Draw a selection around the figures, you don't have to be accurate with this sort of scene. Use the Lasso Tool (or whatever the freehand selection tool is called with other software).

    Feather the edges (I used 15 pixels).

    Copy to clipboard and remove the selection (from original image). Paste as a new layer and move to the desired position.

    Clone out the original figures.

    Just for a bit of fun, I've created two copies and flipped one to face the other way. I could have changed the umbrella colours as well!

    Thanks Geoff managed to figure it out in PSE11 quick selection tool and the move tool and clone stamp
    placed the couple under the mid point of the green and blue hut. But cant make my mind up between that or the original.
