    Re: Follow Me....

    I am wondering about a slight crop but suspect that going to 5 x 4 ratio would make everything appear somewhat 'cramped'.

    Maybe going square and losing a fraction from the bottom; but I'm not sure.

    And would this scene take a tiny bit more brightness in the highlights, particularly on the ground.

    It looks good at the moment so I wouldn't change very much; if anything.

    Make your mind up!

    Thanks Geoff!

    As usual Sharon your picture makes me wonder, look, look closer, back up a bit, enlarge the pic, make it smaller, get lost in it...Humm. The woods sure look forboding/dark. The tree look welcoming, safe. Ok how do you do that to me hum?

    To keep the relation tree to forest and back, I would square the picture to remove some of the forground. But that's just me.
    Am I the only one who can hear the howling of the wolfs?

    Very nice. I would even flipped this image and combine as one. Who said symmetry is boring!

    Great picture, Sharon. It reminds me very much of the drawings used to illustrate some fairy tale books (way back when I was a kid, that is) particularly with that spooky face atop the forest looking down on the lead girl.

    Nope. Sends a shiver down my spine.

    Very well done, Sharon. I would leave it as is. There was a reason you included the foreground and for me it helps draw the eye in from the bottom. The subtle curvature and darker lines would be missed. Fantastic flow and no need to stop or disrupt it. I am hearing the wolves as well!

    Something? SOMETHING? There are so many things in this. I wish I had your eye. Heck, if I just had one of them I'd be pleased.

    IMPORTANT: Anyone not viewing the large size is really missing out.

    Sharon this is a great image - wouldn't change anything - (except adding the Wolf!) was this in shot B &W or conversion? Well done

    It was a conversion Harry but I planned it would be before I took the shot.

    Mark, you are very kind. ( that goes for both of you! )

    It's all about realising a vision, isn't it.

    Sharon... I am struck by your image - I'm betting you are drawn to Impressionism.

    Very nice.

    Sharon, I like how you developed this photograph. Your work often triggers something in my imagination and this picture definitely accomplishes that.
