Another photothought from da fredcritter  

I don't know. I know it only works when very large. At least, I think it only works when very large. If it works at all. I dunno. So click on it and see what you think….

It'll probably fall out of favor fairly quickly. But, well, I thought of it. I did it. I might just as well post it. It was taken in June of '07—the same time as my other Itasca State Park photos (very few of which have been post-processed and posted yet). All time in good things. Erm.

Yeah. Small, it looks like a 'flat' abstract design. Up close, the tree line becomes extremely textured and 3D. It can be a very absorbing picture for many small reasons, but there's not a comfortable easy single McGuffin to point to.

Exactly! I think the splash of red on the right is the nearest thing to, but I don't think it's enough to carry it.

I dunno... if it were me (acknowledged that it ain't), and assuming there's sufficient resolution in the original, I'd consider cropping it at the bottom right up against the shoreline, but keeping most/all of the trees, so it becomes a long, low, wide not-quite-panorama. Also really don't like the blurry object (probably something close to the camera) on the left, but cropping it out would probably also lose at least on person on the shore on the left. Hurm.

Yeah, I was contemplating cropping similarly because that blurry little spot on the left caught my eye as well.

I must state, however, that I'm a cropoholic. I prefer extreme close-ups when I take photographs, so this is a different style than I'm used to and I'm out of my comfort zone here. I'm used to working on a much smaller scale.

Interesting textures, throughout, though.

"out of one's comfort zone" is often a good place to be. I know I am far too entrenched in my own creative habits. I sometimes think I ought to take some art classes just to expand my horizons.

I, on the other hand, am crop-happy. :D
There's neat stuff in this photo regardless.

Very interesting discussion you two are having. It engaged my curiosity bump and is causing Thoughts to rumble up to the surface. If I can find sufficient neurons to rub together ("gather your neurons while ye may"?) and Susan lets me back on the computer later this afternoon, I'll try to share some of those thoughts (and some samples) with you.</p?

[In case the "email replies" thing doesn't show you my comment on gomeza's comment on this comment of yours (I'm not sure how "deep" or "upstream" or whatever those things go), I really appreciate the discussion the two of you are having and hope to have 27 8x10 colour glossy photos with circles and arrows on the back of each one… erm… some discussion of my thoughts and some examples up at the top level RSN. Thanks!]
