Image from an earlier trip to Savannah, curious if it works, and/or how migth you change it (other than trash bin).

Regards,

Bob

Bob,
I'm glad to see this. Because, as you know, I was also shooting railings and stairs alongside you and I have struggled to determine if any of my shots work. I am eager to hear what others think.
My thoughts:
I really like the toning.
I wish you shot to include more of the railings. The shot feels "wide" and dominated by the foreground stairs with less a sense of movement up the stairs, destination, progression than I would like.
The railings on the right become indistinct, lost in blocked up shadows and could stand a bit of recovery.
Maybe I'll put up a few stairway/railing shots for you to take a shot at, get others input. I find these subjects interesting but difficult to make work, much like trying to create effecive images of trees.

Scott

Thanks Scott,

Processing was a quickie, I intend to revisit and apply a different workflow, if nothing more than a challenge to recover the lost areas you have identified, and perhaps crop down some - this is about a FF image.

No trees - my frustration threshold is too low to tackle those

Nothing wrong here that a reclining nude in draped over the steps couldn't fix..

Ahhh, you've detected use of content-aware-fill!



I think the best we could have done at the moment would have been Scott draped in Canon gear - not quite the same aesthetic

Perhaps some vignette and a darker look in soft sepia?

In the shadows at the top of the stairs we see a sitting man, head in hands. Following the stairs downward we see a on the steps below a Canon lens one of the big expensive white ones surrounded by broken glass, painting a poignant picture of a Yankee tourist's photographic safari to Savannah sadly gone terribly wrong...

All that would have taken is a bit of imagination and a broken Coke bottle

I'm fine except that I think I was in sepia that day.
