I like the shot angle just fine, but I might have cropped out the partial photographer on the right side, as it draws the eye away. Just my $0.02, though! Happy New Year! :D

Love the cropping you chose, as it really frames the shot nicely. But because of reasons you've already identified, I find I am more intrigued by the drama in the foreground conversation than the couple in focus. Still, it's an excellent shot, nevertheless! Bravo!

Terrific shot. The hand lends more drama to an already lovely floral shot. Sweet!

Luminar 4

Hello everyone!

FWIW, I've been a Luminar user from the very beginning. I truly appreciate the vision and ambition of the folks at Skylum, even though they sometimes promise more than they can deliver. As an example, when I first installed Luminar 3, the first version that offered both image editing and a library management system, I eagerly uploaded my 6K+ image library, only to discover that Luminar somehow created a mountain of duplicate shots that took hours to ferret out and remove.

After sorting things out, I sent Skylum a detailed report of my debacle. Much to my surprise, I received a prompt (and apologetic) reply within 48 hours, thanking me for bringing the issue to their attention. It was promptly fixed with the first update, and things only got better from there. It's one of the reasons I still support them, heart and soul. I like where they're headed, and I like that they're not the least bit concerned about what the competition is up to. They just fearlessly keep listening to their customers and making their software better and better.

Luminar's interface has been uncluttered and purpose-built since day one, which is why it’s still simple to use, even after a series of updates have added loads of important tools, presets and features along the way. Can it do everything Lightroom can? Nope. Conversely though, there are a number of things Luminar does that no program (Lightroom or otherwise) can.

Skylum is at the forefront of applying machine learning to the image editing world. For Luminar 4, they have created the truly jaw-dropping A.I. Sky Replacement and Skin Enhancement sliders, which promise to dramatically simplify workflows for landscape and portrait photographers, respectively. Without sounding like a sales rep here (I'm not), I think Luminar 4 holds the greatest promise of any version yet. And I’m eager to get my hands on it when it releases next week.

But don't take my word for it. Check out Anthony Turnham’s terrific review here:

If seeing this doesn’t excite you about Luminar 4, nothing will. Whatever you decide, may your photographic journey be a grand one!

Some really great posts, everyone. We're all just one day away from Luminar 4's release. I sure hope it lives up to the hype. Fenwoodian, I couldn't agree more: the potential game changer here. Sure, there are bound to be hiccups along the way, but all but the most artful images stand to benefit from this technology. And anything that will reduce my post-processing time, allowing me more time to simply shoot photos is welcome news, indeed!

Great composition. Love the small, but significant role the.plane plays in making the whole shot work. BTW, I'm just getting into shooting film again, after securing a lovely Spotmatic F and some minty Takumar glass. What did you shoot this with, if I may ask? Thanks!

I much prefer this composition in b&w over the colour version you shared. Has much more mystery and drama, imho. The ultra-wide angle really works here!
