I'm gong to try to keep all of them. Maybe crop off a date if very obvious. But I won't know for sure until I see the proof copy.Thanks for the work there, Angie. Just a question....how are the vertical (portrait) shots going to be worked for the page? Do you know if they'll be cropped or have to be shrunken somehow ?
Thank you for your input.For the cover photo chosen, try to add some contrast to the hills in the back--just a tad---- and tone down the setting sun; it has a tendency to pull the eye there and it is too bright---blown out a bit. Also lighten upo the man on the tractor so he can be seen a little better....it is also good to leave him alone, as he is only a part of the whole.
Is that a small fire burning in the woodpile? It also is an eye puller and takes away from the sense of what the message is here....purity and simplicity. Maybe too much going on in this one.
The sun is definitely a thing I would work with.
The second one is near perfect; shows the theme, the natural way of life, it has Good depth of field and the focus is pretty much spot on. A difficult pic to get so well and it protrays Homesteading perfectly.
Your work was well done and I am sure intense...good choices. :bow:
