p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Acadia Magic


When my plan of joining Mark Metternich's Pacific Northwest workshop got shattered due to Covid, I travelled NorthEast (instead of NorthWest) to Acadia National Park in Maine. It appeared that my bad luck followed me there as my trip was plagued with bad weather. I either had cloudless stark sky or overly cloudy and foggy mornings and evening.

Following are few of the shots, I managed to came out with.

Feedback and critics are welcome (I mean it)

It is purely artistic, aesthetic work in acme of beauty

The conditions look decent to me. Sorry the workshop got cancelled. Mark has a lot of knowledge on the post processing side, especially when it comes to printing. Would've been bummed myself.

Most of these, I feel, would be improved by taking the focus off the foreground. You have the foreground quite bright compared to the rest of the scene.

#2, for example, I would use those lines in the foreground to draw the eye towards the sunset. Darken the foreground slightly (Maybe by burning), then lighten the reflections in the pool and ocean leading to the sunset. I would also brighten the scene slightly more as a lot of your scenery (Such as the rocks in the middle and on the right) is somewhat dark.

Overall, however, your shots are well exposed in camera and you have a good eye for composition. I would just focus on where you'd like the viewer's eyes to travel and edit it in order to accomplish that goal.

Thank you for a very apt and constructive feedback. Now that I relook at the picture I immediately realize what you are conveying here as my eyes immediately go to the foreground elements and stay there and never moves to the horizon. I will try to darken the foreground a tad more and repost soon.

Love the colour and the warmth in these images Kaushik. Especially how the rocks are reflecting the warm light.

In line with the above feedback, I think, your mid-ground is slightly darker and plain. Thus lacking anything interesting to hold the eye in. This is quite evident in #2 & #3.

I still like the colour tones and the nice foreground elements in these images though.

Your Plan B paid off well! All great comps/sky. As for me I would explore some slight shadow recovery - especially in your last lighthouse pic.

Very nice set, but I keep coming back to #2. I do agree with the well thought suggestions posted by Fouve and Zurura and would very much like to see the revision, if you're so inclined. Thanks so much posting.

Thanks.

And for me, I have no problem focusing on the foreground out. For me it makes the images, it's why I like them.

Anyway, that's my opinion, and I recognize others have theirs, but I just wanted to give a different perspective on that comment.

Peace

Breathtaking. I was there once, these are bringing back fond memories of what Acadia has to offer. In looking at these I just loved the warmth, I could see you being bathed in that glorious light as you took the shots.
In the comments given about the light foreground............I am not sure that I would want to see it darkened as much as rather seeing perhaps the midground lightened a bit?? I like the light being caught at your footsteps................more of a feel of the image coming to you than it going out from you if that makes sense.
Either way.............just stunning
