Trekking in the French alps


Recommended Posts

A charming shot with human interest, a sense of moving back in time, & a lovely feeling of depth!


It might gain from a little more post-processing. This shot is worth it! Consider correcting the tilt on the left with perspective crop, & give us a bit more shadow detail?


(I agree with Jaap re: 'drop-shadow' framing - a modern digital touch that works against the timelessness of the image?)

Marie-Louise, you continue to produce great material. I urge you to invest more time in digging out all the great stuff in these files and make decisions about what you feel & experience in these frames. Then show us, so we can see you in them. All the best.

This is terrific.


If there's any more detail in the shadow of the tree (where the chickens are) and you can pull that out, you have a real "hanger" here.


Really good work.


If you are into black and white, I urge you to buy one of the books by James Ravilious. A real inspiration for the sort of shot you show here. No longer with us, unfortunately.
