Alfresco (out in the open)

On the beachfront in the Bay at Scarness. A good cloud formation behind from where I took the shot looked good, the lighting was low but the scene ok.

Colortone/crop/Raw file Lightroom 1.3.1

Remove distractions
Selective Color

The perspective is the wide open spaces out in the open, compared to the trees and chairs that are set on the shore line.

Conceptually this is very nice, if a bit off the beaten path for a "perspective" challenge. The cropping on the bottom and right is simply excellent. The processing, unfortunately, is a whole other story. It's got an overall muddy, green tint to it that is damaging you. I see you are using lightroom, which is an excellent color management tool, so it makes me wonder if the color is set right on your monitor. Aside from color and noise issues, this is a very nice image.

Very simple very well done,. Not sure why it scored as low as it did. Maybe a bit too much in the blue channel, but not much. Personally I think the photo is a winner.

Interesting and very effective. Breaks the rule of thirds with the horizon, yet still adheres to it with the placement of the trees. Not sure how this straight across composition illustrates perspective, but I really like the image.

a bit too much saturation in the cyan. No wow effect either 5

Nice idea but I'd like this better if it had just a little bit of forground and maybe some more drama in the sky.
