Doorway 2






















Per Mr. Riley's suggestion, I removed the grey box from the original photo (there was also a small package sitting on the step in front of the door, in the right bottom corner of the doorway- photo shopped that out before posting before) and experimented with bringing it in closer...

The picture with more lawn looks more forlorn, less accessible to me... the close up is more inviting.

What do you think?

nice Photoshop work! I think the cropped image looks great. I agree that the one with the grass takes away from the image. I think the eye tries to focus ont he pretty green grass instead of the intended subject. but that's the great thing about digital camaras, you can take a wide shot and then crop it down to sometimes even half the size and still have a decent print. it gives the photographer so much more flexibility.

great work. keep them coming!

That is awesome--not just the touch-ups, but the photo itself. It definitely reminded me of a house out of some fable or Narnia book or something.

Carae, do you have any tips for me as I'll be completely new to Steubenville?

Feel free to email me at tom@tomreagan.com

Thanks,

Ya know... both shots are good. I can see either one being considered "better."
