Re: after the rain


  • robonrome  you are spoiling me and pushing the bar higher
  • Thanks for the kind comments to:  19andrew47  and  Jack
  • Indeed a nice time, and at sunset too! ( to: Adventsam )
  • to Howard :  the chapel is seen as the focal point of interest in the image, as the safe landing port.   The surrounding wood and the grey background sky looking vaguely untrustworthy.              To try to convey that I gave more sharpness to the details of the building  and added brilliance to the evening sun rays on the Chapel  facade.    On the other hand  the background has diminishing detail and exposure from the center to the borders (funnel effect, together with the dominant converging lines of the puddle borders)  to guide the viewer to the main point of interest, the Chapel.  With the exception of the reflection in the puddle and some shiny leaves on center left to distract attention,  useful to stimulate involuntary second glances

Regards,  Vittorio
