heh heh J... finally started taking pictures in large scale already huh..
I like this shot but the cropping can be improved. The Main draw is not the scenery but the couple underneath the tree. So showing more here is not exactly a nice thing, esp the unwanted areas on the right side.
I like the use of perspective here. the faraway look yet the 2 persons remain as the primary focus. Very nicely done. Now it's the postprocess work to enhance it.
1) crop away the right side to isolate the focus on the tree and the couple. (nicely framed by that small natural arch from the branches btw)
2) Use dodging and burning to further isolate the foreground interest from the back ground.
3) the contrast and the b&w tonality is a little weaker here so bump them up man..
mate, this isn't one of your better shots. Can't really see how the title ties in with the shot although i could venture i guess but that wouldn't be fair to you. I like how the light drops off from the subject, which does in some way emphasizes on the main subject but there are too much other trees in the background to really have the main subject stand out.
Never mind, you are in the land fertile with landscapes, beautiful sunsets and portrait subjects. I am sure you have what it takes to bring it out.
Thanks so much for your kind comments/critics .. Its all very much appreciated. and yeah its not one of my better shots .. that's why i posted it up here .. cos i felt "iffy" about this one..
