I love this. Something about the straight line of the fence maybe. Very nicely done.
This is simply a beautiful slice of Australian rural life. It could be a scene from my childhood and that man could be my grandfather.
I really liked this pic to begin with and now it is even better. Cloning the child out focuses one's attention on the lone figure. Lovely composition.
Jadz, I'd say the cloning is excellent. Now he's a solitary figure the image has more power. Horizon still looks off to one side to me. On your original the rotation should have been 1.2 degrees CCW. On this, it still needs to go 0.6 degrees CCW. Are you using photoshop? Make sure the rulers are showing. Click on one and drag a guidline down. it'll help you visually. (Hope that's not patronising)
I had the same thought as ISO (scarry, eh!) but didn't mention it. This is much better!
Thanks Iso - what do you think now?
I like all the elements in this pic. I developed a mad passion for baling season this year ;-). I've looked at it for a while and hmmm, did you shoot it at an angle on purpose? Can't make my mind up about that horizon. Also the child is masked out by his arm. I think it would be better if they were cloned out to leave the solitary figure. On a first few glances I never even noticed them but now I know they're there I can't help but look. These are just throwaway comments Jadzia OK.
With his back turned to the camera the viewer can put anybody they know into the picture. In my case it's one of my uncles. This makes the picture a more personal experience for the viewer and adds to the enjoyment of the picture.
