p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Having second thoughts on these 2


I have been going through my photos from a trip i took a this summer visiting some friends of mine in Europe.
This is where a friend of mine lived this summer, here boy friend taking care of cows in the morning and selling lunch to hikers during the day. I was able to stay with them for a week and it was so wonderful.

I am having second thoughts on these to photos.

1. i am not sure what one i like more
2. I really don't know about both of them, I feel like there is something wrong with them but I am not sure what.

C&C most welcome.

thanks

For a start, you can tell it's a cow pasture from what the cows left behind.

Nice scene ... I'm sure it was quite nice to be there.

I mostly tweaked on the color cast to pull back some of the blue.
Also a little different crop.

The sky needs work. I am not sure if you used a polarizer or shot the images using auto white balance and in aperture priority mode. I would suggest when making a panorama to shoot in Manual mode so exposures are more consistent. Setting white balance to either a Kelvin temperature or set to daylight also helps with consistency. Of course, this could be artifacts from using HDR software as well.

Kent's crop works better for the image.

Thanks!

RustyBug, that helps a ton and looks much better! thanks for the direction.

Oregon Gal, the sky is one of the things that is bugging me the most. It was all shot manual and no auto white balance but if i remember I did use a polarizer i think. I also blended it manually as well. It defiantly needs work.

thanks, this was what I am looking for.

Polarizer would have been my guess ... I didn't even try to do anything with the sky regarding the unevenness.

First, I really like the scene. Kent's crop and rework improves. The greens are a bit hot to my eye.
Second, the reworked sky is improved but still not there. Some blotchy light areas along the treeline esp left, a darker patch, then almost a circular brighter area to its right by the diagonally "climbing" clouds on the right.
Some may be HDR/merge artifact, but I think its the polarizer that really complicated your sky. Still, a beautiful scene and worth the time to finish it right.

I am getting closer, I hope. But i think I have been looking at it to long now
I also feel that flickr is crunching the whole image a lot more then when looking at it normally.

thanks for all your help so far! much appreciated!
