I prefer #2. The problem I have with #1 is that the background is too distracting. Perhaps, since you're already playing with Photoshop, you could darken it and blur it some more?

I saw this thread earlier and meant to make a comment. Overall I like this series. I don't like the "edge burning" on these photos but that is a personla opinion. The 2nd picture is good but I would have made the focus closer to the camera or cut the out of focus from early on. The 3rd and 4th are the best due to the light on the stalks and the detail in the stalks on the 3rd and the rows alignments onto the barn in the 4th. The details on the barn are good. thanks for sharing.

Ottawa,

For a number of years I headed the photography department of a national Ad Agency. I looked at images and graded them daily.

I think your images work fine within the context of their subject matter. However, in every instance the burning detracts from the image as a whole. The use is well beyond what might be called for in the circumstances shown. Additionally, the volumn of burn is simply overpowering and would probably benefit from a very delicate touch to no burn at all.

Good photography... no need for the burn.

Redo of the last 2 in the series

I've seen a lot of edge burning in the last little bit. But based on the comments I have posted 2 redo's.

Better or Not ??






I would also like to say thanks to those who have taken the time to comment !! I have not posted much on here in regards to photos, but I will be starting to as I try to take my photography a little more seriously !

Clearly better. Attention is focused where it should be.
