Cool ... made the top 10!

This picture was put together with three individual shots.

The middle photo was cropped slightly and the sky was lightly burnt with PS.

The side panels were cropped and desaturated slightly to focus the eye and complement the main image.

Thanks very much for your votes!

looks like a fantasy world. Odd in that I like it and don't like it at the same time. I think the triptych enhances the image but I wonder at your choice of framing - its all personal taste anyway. The image quality is excellent Maybe its the black at each corner holding me back. No clue. Anyway - 8 - good luck in the challenge!

This is one of my top 5 in the challenge. I love the way your eye follows the line of trees. The way you arranged the images and chose two different sizes is wonderful. I love it.

what a beautiful backyard!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/15/2005 10:28:30 PM
Wow, I'm moving in! A gorgeous view. I'm curious about the difference in the trees on the left and right. Have they been desaturated or something. That part seems a bit odd. I'm not convinced I like the different sizes of the photos but it does create an interesting effect.

Almost looks like a painting. Good Job!

How does the division of your picture into three frames enhance the photo? How does this "tell...a story or illustrates a concept or object" better than the original image?
11/15/2005 02:52:42 AM
Creative use of triptych, good layout and nice subject.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2005 11:53:48 PM
I think you really made this one work by using smaller sized left and right panels. It's a great shot, but wouldn't have been as interesting if you had left them all the same size. Very beautifully done!

Great cropping job. The shadows are very intense and prominent. I wonder how it would look in b/w with a bump in contrast. Might just give Ansel Adams a run for his money!

Nice yard. not sure how I feel about the sides being cropped
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2005 06:27:31 PM
I like the way you have the windows set up. Very well done
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2005 06:16:27 PM
this is beautiful, tho it's hard to make out detail at this size...reminds me of the Lord of the Rings landscapes
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2005 03:27:04 PM
Nice backyard! :-) The difference in saturation between the pictures is interesting. I like the different sizings, but the black space leaves me feeling like something is missing, like it needs a cool border around the whole picture (not the individual ones). Also, the blue sky in the middle shows some definite Photoshop play - detracts from the "natural feeling" of the sequence. Pretty and unique picture - overall I like it!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Not only is this an awesome photo on its own, the framing is great. Nice to see something a little different.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2005 10:02:22 AM
Beautiful view. Great wide angle, expansive landscape. Center shot being larger is interesting with a great sky. I like it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2005 08:00:35 AM
Oh you lucky!!!!!! I should take off points for the jealous factor for having a back yard like this -- just kidding -- it's gorgeous, and looks great in a triptich format :) Good luck.

6 - Very nice. Criticism; although I can see the effect of the side panels, to me, given that the 'rows' are such a feature in this shot, to somehow have incorporated, or rather not cropped, the tips of the fore trees, would have made this better in my opinion. Whether by a different choice of sized frame, or higher placement, or even full length, not sure.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2005 04:25:09 AM
Nice work but the slight color variation in the three panels is distracting
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2005 03:03:50 AM
Not a fan of the odd sized borders with some exceptions - I don't think it works here, but just my opinion of course - however, the image(s) are so good, I'll go easy on you for it :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2005 12:54:02 AM
Just beautiful. The rich tones and different image sizes really help add to the leading line quality. That sky is outstanding.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2005 12:24:53 AM
It's a good (very pretty!) photograph, but I don't think it's any better as a triptych than it would have been as a single image.
