I don't know that I am advanced, but I'm not a newbie, I guess somewhere in between. Could use some thoughts on this. For the first time here, I added a watermark also.

i love how this pops out in a cartoonish onslaught of colour.

I'd just watch the saturation clipping on the pink flowers and red flowers. Not sure if there is actually clipping, as the image is so low res.

good pic

The exposure looks ok,focus looks good.I think the subject matter is off,there's too much going on.The sign is blocking the view of the house.

The reason I used the sign is because this was a shot I took for a publication about businesses that have been in the county for along time. So the tractor and the sign I thought were a good touch for this bakery. Thanks for the comments

Hi Jerry,

I think the photo is a little too busy. If the Tractor was removed that would clean the shot up immensely, then shot zoomed in just a pinch and taken from the LHS for a more triangular perspective which would throw the sign over to the right of frame allowing it to be more legible and creating more of a focal point and gateway leading us to the bakery. Or shooting down lower. But the tractor I don't think works right now, but from a different angle somewhere in the foreground perhaps it might. Sometimes compromises have to be made :-)

The focus and and exposure look good ... maybe some chromatic aberrations around the trees, which is easily fixed in lightroom.
Would like to see more of this Bakery though, some story telling photos would be cool.

Photo is nice and vibrant, although the colours might seem too saturated or compressed due to the fact its a scaled down image.


Thats my two cents worth and my opinions only B)


Cheers!
Bill
