Great stego 2009-01-27 15:28

Hi David,

It's nice to see you coming back after a long absence. And I see you do it in a great way!
The place is magical by itself, but with that light it looks even more stunning. If I had taken this one, I would hesitate cutting the FG stupa fearing that it wouldn't result compo wise, but actually it was very wise, as the visual arrangement of the stupas is very pleasing.

While I don't like the "true HDR appearance" we see in some photos, I have nothing against the use of that technique to overcome the limited latitude of the sensors, that don't match our eyes. As a matter of fact, I don't use it more often because it is frequent that I can't avoid the unnatural appearance or hallos. The less "natural" thing in this photo is the light, as it is so heavenly and that, of course, it isn't a flaw, but one of the charms of the image. The darker areas, namely the stupas, look quite natural, so I think you did a flawless job in PP. I dare saying the same about the original post, although I prefer this version.

Regards, Josť.

Default To stego: Composition

Hi Josť,

I actually shot this with all of the right hand stupa in frame, but the composition felt too symmetrical so I cropped away about 15 percent of the right-hand side. That also enabled me to crop a little off the top and bottom as well to produce what I thought was a more pleasing composition.

Glad you agree :)

Cheers . . . David
