The same place as The Sword, but different lightbalance (and picture). I wanted to wait a while before uploading this, but I suck at that.

(Again, It's been a long time since I took forest photo's, because the weather isn't working with me. Therefore I'm now at the point of pimping images I didn't like enough to upload, with more editting than I usually do.)


---
Post-processing: I upped the highlights and lowered the low lights in Faststone, which created a bit of a glow and more contrast; and I upped the 'normal' contrast, and reduced the noise.

Location: Oldenaller, the Netherlands.

At first glance the photograph is awe evoking, the location seems like a distant land from some other world, and subjectively looking at it it makes me want to wander off into some dreamland. But it has it's imperfections, I would start with the focus, the focus in the center where the water meets the land seems logical, but due to the fog that is impossible, and we have this blurry photo. It might have been a better idea to put the entire focus on the leaves, and adjust the angle a little to make the composition more adequate.
I find it a little too much edited, and the colors too strong for my eye. I have been through your gallery many times it is unlike your best work, which have a softer side, and are more appealing, they simply rest the eye.

All in all the problem is the basic ground that you had to work with, I find it slightly dull, and a little off balance with focus and color. You work way, way better than this!

Hope you don't find my critique to harsh! :)

I really admire your work, and I look forward to future deviations! :))

Haha, wrong picture to ask critique for! I tend to ask critique for images I had to work more for afterwards in post-processing, which for me means they need work to 'work'.. which naturally makes them less then the other pictures I upload which need less work. I'll ask critique on those in the future.

I'm wondering about the colours though.. On my screen they're not that bright; but I'm using a different computer than I usually do.. Pictures I previously uploaded already seemed less colourfull on this screen, I was wondering about that. I'll see if I need to adjust the screen settings.

Thank you for taking the time critique, I appreciate it! :)

This should have went into 'critiques'...

Uh oh, looks like I'm the lone voice of dissent. =) I have to say I like The Sword better. The light is softer and the contrast in colors gives the photo more depth. Adding the gold tones and upping the contrast make Autumn Reign feel a little too blown out for me.

I didn't add gold tones, that's just the whitebalance (it was set on Shadows here). In The Sword I used Lamplight, which created the blue colours.

I prefer Sword as well though.. I prefer blue tones in general I think :)

Right, white balance - should have been more specific. That's what I get for commenting when I'm distracted at work. =) Regardless, your composition for the shot is excellent. Cheers!

You've taken what was already a wonderful photo to a dream-like level.
I can almost hear the fairies singing and splashing in the tranquil waters.

Amazing creativity!

OOooh, ethereal! I'm expecting the Fellowship to come sailing down the river any moment, in the boats they got in Lothlorien :giggle: And now that I got my nerd moment out there, I must say that this is a wonderful shot. The warm tones make me feel all cozy inside, and the thick mist gives a very faerie-like feel to the whole piece. A wonderful bit of work...not like I expected anything less from you :hug: faved!
