p.1 #1 · Ngorongoro Craterscape III


Cropped and uncropped. Obviously the road has to go. But how much sky? Foreground brush?
Trying to give a sense of place, scale.
What would you do?
I suspect this image works best as a documentary image.

I might consider cropping to the top edge of your name. The bright tonal value at the bottom edge draws a bit. The foreground grasses overall compete pretty hard as well. I might look at ways to pull them back (blur,desat, tone, etc.) so they don't try to steal the show.

Comes across very much as an "as seen" @ what I would expect if I were standing there ... just wish there wasn't so much specular highlight coming off the foreground grasses.

You have three things fighting for dominance which means I don't know what this photo is about.

Is it the sky? The trees? Or the foreground grass?

Thanks Kent. Appreciate the thoughtfulness of your analysis.
Do you mean cropping the first version or the second version above the signature?

Paul,
I agree. I doubt this image can stand on its own. My goal, perhaps poorly attempted, was to document some of the way the crater interior looked. And my hope was to play the sky and trees as the dominant elements.

Sorry ... 1st version. Maybe be a little lower @ middle of signature, but just something to move the eye a touch away from the bottom edge brightness.
