|Total number of voters: 11 ( Mike Lostraglio, mike tompkins, Gabe, Brent Ross, Roy van Ommen ) See more|
|Only registered users can participate to this poll|
I'm narrowed my selections down to 3 images, but am having a difficult time pulling the trigger on which 1 to choose for the large canvas (ie, 24x36 or larger)
Here are the 3 candidates (in no particular order, w/o watermark of course)
Austin City Skyline with Rising Moon

Austin City Skyline with light trails

University of Texas at Austin -- Tower Burnt Orange Edit

The first photo is strong. Has smooth water, reflection from the lights, beautiful buildings, and the colors flow.
However, my preference of what to buy is totally different than others . I have a few shots in my personal collection that I showed my friends that I didn't think anyone would like printable. I edited it and put it on my site and I've already sold over a dozen prints.
1 & 2 tied for 23 likes on facebook...#1 beat #2 by 4 likes on instagram...so i guess #1 seems to be the right route to take
#2 is my personal favorite bc of the light trails & the state capitol in the background...#1 to many has a few key skyline buildings either missing bc of composition or being blocked by others
@StevenSantamour -- i agree about the preference thing...some of the photos i have that I'm not 100% confident in were actually big hits with my friends/followers...so of course, it comes down to individual taste
For me, personally, the first image would bore me after a while. Not that its not a nice image, but it will bore me after some time.
Like i said, my opinion. Don't hang me for that
i dont own a copy of Photoshop...i use LR5 & an old version of elements...i did use the profile corrections in LR5 & it seemed to straighten the building a little (as seen above)
and i know straight buildings is the "right" thing to do...but sometimes i like the look of leaning "towers"
but for future reference, does Elements have the ability to straighten buildings? if so, how would i go about doing so?
1 is nice but I think 2 is a stronger image and whilst I think the third one is still nice, I think it's the weakest image of the set compared with the other two.
Yes, you can straighten in Elements. Check out Essential Photoshop Elements for details of how.
