The Misty Woods

A landscape quite contrary to what I used to do in terms of style...
I'm not sure about this..
What do you think about it?

Hi Hunter!

Let me share my impression.

Hm. Poping colors, the blue and pink. Reduced contrast. Can not see structure, texture in the cloud.

The line of the mountains is rising up into the upper right corner. That's sending positive and progressive feelings.

I am not convinced finally.

Stay safe! dg9ncc

Upper left corner? Not convinced about what? And what is dg9ncc? I'm a little confused...

Hi Hunter!

I am sorry to confuse you: I mean the upper RIGHT corner. I corrected that.

I am not convinced, this is a strong photograph. For me. It can be different for others. You were asking for the thoughts of your audience. I felt free to give feedback on the photograph and what I feel and think about. A misunderstanding?

I have the impression, you take my feedback personally. That is not my intention at all! I see you have a personal connection to the image and the situation when you made the photograph. This is fully OK! I also often do. We usually do not take a photograph of uninteresting things.

I am sorry about the impression I gave you :) I didn't mean anything personal, just purely confused. I totally agree on your opinions. This is not meant to be "strong" when I processed it ;-D

You are asking the wrong question Hunter - the question is, what do YOU feel about it?
You obviously have some connection to the image, but something is causing you to question - what do you feel is providing reservations?

I suggest you put this aside for a week or so then revisit. I know I see my own work in a different light after putting to one side for a while.

I am guessing that the move from your own 'style' is the cause of concern. I would go with your gut - if you are questioning it now you likely won't enjoy the image later, no matter what others might say.

I personally quite like the tranquil nature of this. although I would be tempted to crop the 1st 10% off the left to remove the darker area somewhat.

Thanks :) I feel more natural revisiting it after a while :)
And, by the way, I like your view :-D

BTW - outside of this I have just published an article on my website about how to use advice and remain true to yourself. At the end of the day it is solely your opinion that matters;
