I actually like the blue tones on the original better but with a little less saturation. This one is a tad too dark for my tastes. Perhaps one halfway between this and the first, in a toned down blue... But then agian what d I know? I'm partial to blue anyhow.
The capture itself is real good. I like the dramatic sky and the detail in the wood.
I love this new darker direction, the greyness of it is scrummy
Disclaimer - I have about 9 gazillion dev to get through. Sorry for the short comments but I am trying to not ignore anything I really like.
This one is much more dark and a bit sinister than the latter. I see the grain is less in the photo overall, helps smooth it out a bit. The crop creates more of a continual feel than the other did, showing the end of the pier. I prefer this over the first version, well done!
Looks like something from a childs nightmares, that stained grungy railing is what i love, the clouds are wonderful, but i cant take my eyes off the railing. Its so sharp yet so stained and messy looking.
I love all the black, it really brings out the clouds, and the lighter tones in the piece.
Not only are you a brilliant photographer, it seems you have some damn good photoshop skills, your making me green marion!
i'm,...i'm,...i don't believe it,...
you posted it yesterday?
this is excellant marion.
like intoxik8 said, it is 'moody'.
reminds me of some of my charcoals,...
that maybe i've added some dark inks too
beforehand,...like undercurrents of color.
and i feel undercurrents of some type here.
i really love all the contradicting directions
that all the 'lines' are taking as well.
they seem to create several different
perspectives all at once too.
very nicely done nighty.
'nighty',...i've never wondered where that
came from,...until now,...and it seems
to fit this image as well.
strange what comes to one's head at times,...
What really appeals to me about this photo is the way that it seems to stretch into the infinite...the sky, the boardwalk, the water. The color tones adds to that eerie sensation. Maybe a bit on the dark side, but the darkness does make the clouds stand out well.
Perhaps a bit dark for my personal tastes. But I love the composition here. It's so moody, makes me feel a little sad, perhaps the title you have given the images helps to emphasize the feeling I get from looking at them, but even without a title, it speaks many words
I happened to like the black and white contrasted version that you posted for a short while and then took down yesterday. I love black and white because when you view a photo, all your emotions and feelings actually colour the photo for you, making every time you look at the same piece an almost unique experience. That's the impact great photo's can have, this is one of those photo's, especially because of the scenery shot. Looking at it, my focus flows between the perspective of the board walk and then the patter of clouds at the top. However I like this version as well, the milder blue sepia effect is calmer and more tranquil, matching the scene you are portraying. Great work hon
