Thanks for posting!
Wow, I really like all of them. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks, your welcome
Hi Duncan, and thanks for sharing your work. A good series; for myself, I prefer the 2nd/3rd over the first. Not that the first is irrretrievable, but (perhaps ironically), it's the level of detail that can be seen in the foreground and mid-frame in the first one that makes it less impressive for me. What I mean is, in the latter two images there's a sense of form, somewhat abstract layering of colours, and that 'illusion' if you will is marred by the harsher reality of the mountain detail and what looks like buildings in the first image. Maybe it's because I'm a romantic at heart...
Thanks Mike, that is really helpful. I was looking at the option of cropping off the bottom half of that first shot leaving a pano type shot of the upper layering which will help simplify the shot. I guess I am guilty of not knowing what to leave out. I used to do a lot of oil painting years ago, when I had more spare time, and I remember my art lecturer telling me that the hardest thing is not knowing what to paint, it's what not to paint. It was so easy to keep working a painting to the point when you have added to much, knowing when to stop is crucial.
In this instance, especially the first shot, I think I lost touch with the reason why I found these shots appealing, their simplicity, and as a result allowed to much detail to creep in to spoil their simplicity.
