Re-edited

Yesterday I had my Level 4 Critique with Glen Guy on the Arcanum, a very interesting and useful critique which gave my plenty to think about. I have started looking again at the images that were critiqued in light of the comments and this is one I have re-edited. I’m not sure this is the ‘finished’ version but it is certainly different from the original image. I have increased the luminance and colour contrast, done some dodging and burning trying to make the image less flat. Better? I think so, any opinions?

  1. Yes Richard it is much better. I feel that the ‘new’ image has much better colour harmony and vibrancy. In my opinion you can easily see the detail and the texture in the rocks better now that you have made some adjustments. Your question … is it finished? Are images ever finished???

  2. Beautiful image with lots of interest front to back, and definitely the re-edit. Better colour definition and clarity.

  3. I think that the new image has a lot more drama to it. Sometimes it is good to go back to images that you like but feel there is something missing and look at them with fresh eyes.
