    Railway Lever HDR

    Hi, going forward on my photography venture I stopped and clicked another shot. Can you please review it and let me know what exactly is missing for it to reach position Perfect?

    It is an HDR and I have deliberately gave it a grungy look but shallow DOF is real

    Thanks

    Raj a very, very well done HDR, it is to the point that if not told would not have known it was an HDR. I think if it was to be printed say 12 x 18 it would be an image that would catch my eye, and would want a closer look. However to me once having gotten a closer look it does not want to hold me now that is just me. It is a very fine image.

    Cheers:

    Allan

    Thanks for the kind review So, should I resize it a bit smaller?

    No not at all, when I view an image on my monitor I can not tell the actual size. What I was trying to say was if I say it on a wall, at say 12 x 18 it would catch my eye even from a distance and I would want to get closer to get a better look.

    Cheers:

    Nice image; the white patch towards left side is a bit distracting from the subject

    Raj,
    It is always better not to edit and replace a photo that has been posted and commented upon; this is because others who come on the the thread later would wonder what was mentioned and what was edited; others might have different opinion about the same thing, which has been edited out. So please keep the original and add the new edit in chronology of events
    Regards

    Good selective focus and subtle HDR which works well on metal.

    Nice shot Raj!

    Hi Raj - a beautifully done work. Your choice of warm tones is a good match given the wooden handles that dominate the image. I think the HDR has been done very tastefully. The one small niggly point I have is the small bright area in the top left of the image; my eyes seem drawn to it more than they should.

    Thanks for the detailed review I have already corrected the bright area

    I too prefer the second image. The level of HDR used is to my liking, subtle and just enough to bring out detail. Well done. I like the colours and patina on the levers. A pleasing image and one that would want me to see more of your work.
