Week 27.7 - Madeira fire - Repost - EPx

EP20160530-0096-Edit-Edit

Critics on 1x.com suggested some modifications to the original photo. On the one hand, the rock was a bit too much "on fire", so I lowered the colour intensities a bit. Secondly, the rocks to the right bottom were too bright, as a result of which the attention did not go to the "rock on fire". Lastly, the sky could do with a touch more contrast. 

 The original photo is show to the right. Wether it is indeed an improvement or not, is a matter of taste of course. The changes are quite subtle. I certainly would agree to the need to darken the rocks a bit. There was also a suggestion to remove the smaller rocks in the water. However, I prefer them in there. They also add a bit more to the enclosing arch. It makes the bottom part less "straight" at the bottom left.
