Re: Edinburgh today

Nice shots Fi!
Looks like you are having fun!
The only thing I would say is that 2 and 3 need a leeetle bit of straightening, and the third one looks slightly clustered and it is a shame the focal point is slightly obscured by the tree, because it is a lovely building. I wouldn't mind seeing one of that spire looking upwards from below.....do you mind? (ahem, get out there.... )

Nice set. Like the second conversion.

Re: Edinburgh today

thanx Jack............ the third one is actually straight but the path at the bottom is going up a hill which is why it looks squint, i did think of cropping it but did not want to lop the trees off half way.

Thanx for looking. have put what i think is the best in a critique thread

Re: Edinburgh today

Are you sure this is Edinburgh? It's not raining!

#2 for me - although the statue and pedestal is a little lost against the church.

That Lucis Art certainly gives images a punch, I think it will have to go on my list.

I thought that at first glance, Graham, but then spotted the people sitting on the base of the pedestal + immediately identified the two as separate entities. (I have never been to Edinburgh, so I don't know the scene at all.)

I really like the composition in this, + would go so far as to say I think this is one of your best images, Fiona

Re: Edinburgh today

oh many thanx! i did kinda think that the statue was not seperate enough form the cathedral, but i didint want to resort to selective colouring etc to seperate the two, i may have another look and try to put the filter on the cathedral and keep it off the statue see if that makes it any better.

Might be easier to walk 30 ft to your right and shoot from there. That'll get the statue out completely.

Re: Edinburgh today

Not too keen on 1 and 3 the combination of the trees and the
incredible old buildings are not pleasing on my eye.

I really really like 2. I like the statue and church combination and you get the feel of the hustle and bustle of city life.

Re: Edinburgh today

#2 is clearly the best here. And the statue is dark enough that it does stand out from the church. Another winner from Fi.
