Here's a second in the Ephrata Cloister series from yesterday morning. This is the first time I've attempted a pastoral image. I was after that sort of dreamy look you see when, through sleep misted eyes you peer out upon the sun rising's first rays sparkling from the grassy morning dew. That early heat generates wispy fog which glows with the light's earliest color.
At least that's what's there when a good pastoralist makes it happen. I tried to hush the sun's worst glare with the orchard's limbs. And the entire image was intended to represent the very earliest spring painting the scene. Now... How could this be done better? Suggestions?
Whoa! Lookit this
I posted the original above on the Canon Photography On The Net forum. JSimonian suggested these changes. I think they are terrific. Whoa! Who would've believed that a sunrise could look better without the sun? Plus you will note the suggested crops, particularly on the left where a small amount of useless information simply distracted the eye. I'm really so pleased with this. Any comments?
