photoblog image Spell or Curse?

Spell or Curse?

A little extra was added to this, a vignette treatment.

I am not sure if it improves the scene -  or not.

 

I am certain I could make a simple improvement

by cropping out the utility lines.

i prefer the one without, Mary - there is quite a lot to see all over the image. wonderful shot with the reflections.
Care MacADNski: I like the larger one too. Thank you.
I like the vignette - it's a beautiful scene, and the vignette gives it a bit of a "finish". The lines aren't that noticeable with such color and life from the birds.
Excellent rendition from Miss Iza!
Care MacADNski: Iva did do this cover well. Thanks for the always positive comments.

Care MacADNski: I did take some our from some of the others that day.

You could, but it is nonetheless very lovely
Care MacADNski: Thank you, the weather wa so perfect that day.
Joli envol d'oiseaux dans un beau décor.
Care MacADNski: I was so glad they decided to move.
Sometimes cloning out the lines is easy to do, Mary, and sometimes not. They don't bother me that much here but I do prefer the second shot with the wider format.
Care MacADNski: I like the second one too. Some that I edited from this day did have the lines cut out or cloned out but not these two.

THESE are fabulous picture, Mary. Everything about them are wonderful, the colours and those birds. You were there at the right moment!

I feel as if I am observing through a pair of binoculars.
Care MacADNski: I suppose the vignetting does give that effect.
I would crop this but not the vignette. Try cropping off the top 1/4 and the bottom 1/4
Care MacADNski: Yes I can see that working well.
I don't like the vignette Mary, just crop out the power lines. Its a nice shot then...smile
Care MacADNski: The bottom does not have the vignette and Is more wide open.

Oh, Mary, this photograph could make my day!
Care MacADNski: That pleases me greatly. Thank you.
I like the vignette, you've brought the edges in and drawn our attention to the most interesting part of the picture. Re the lines a slightly bigger crop at the top would have taken out that single line left over. Sorry I've got my camera club hat on for a few minutes, it is such an enjoyable image to look at.
Care MacADNski: I like opinions, diffident or not.

I always enjoying images of flocks of birds in flight; I like the seeing the different wing angles.
Care MacADNski: That is my favourite part, the bird shapes and especially their reflections.

I know the manual don't like utility lines. They can add to the atmosphere, but not here. Work on an enlarged picture, with a small diameter brush - healing or cloning. Back to normal size you will hardly see any thing.

The spread of birds suggest the rectangular picture, but you probably wanted to cut the evidence of the road out. The square picture, I wouldn't add vignette.
Care MacADNski: You explain exactly why I don't fiddle - or twiddle, much. Way too much work to make it correct. I was playing with 'borders' and perhaps should leave everything the usual SOOC. So much easier...
I like the vignette, for me it helps bring focus onto the birds......very nice, Mary smile
Care MacADNski: Just playin' around - and I enjoy playing when I have time. The bottom photo is better so the other(this) got the treatment.
these are magic pictures Mary... wouldn't be great to feel the freedom of flying among the birds....petersmile
Care MacADNski: This was election day!!!! I had cast my vote to the wind, basically.
