on a lousy work monitor, so.....
always that issue what we saw, how we remember it, how we want to remember, how it can be approximated in 2d representation
1. Beautiful scene. Colors are appealing (non-calibrated monitor), detail looks good. I wonder if the darker reflections were darker. Overall, looks realistic.
2. Love the foreground flowers, the rocks pointing into the water. I would consider this realistic as well. On a different level, I personally would prefer a tad less sky. Interestingly but perhaps less effectively, a square crop, taking from the sky, might work here too, although I think the original proportions...Show more →
I started to make these changes and got confused. The bottom half of the reflection, is darker than the real part by a good amount, at least on my monitor. An easy change would be to add a layer with multiply and do a gradient mask on the reflection. Or perhaps paint it in.
It also occurred to me that just the sky part of the reflection is too bright.
But in the end, I think the real problem here is that the scene needed a wider lens or standing further back.
If you clarify, I will give it go.
