this is an extremely beautiful photo, nature at her best.
i am neither photographer or artist, but have a thought which i think might transform this excellent photo into an exquisite work of art.
have you ever heard of the "golden ratio" or "golden mean"? go here: [link]
my thought is to leave the photo its original height, but to crop it to bring the golden ratio into play, by trying it two different ways. try cropping it by approximately 25% of its width, to bring the tree off center and to change the ratios of the photo into the general dimensions of a "double door". perform this from each of the two sides saving each one along with the original. compare. i would bet that you like the two new versions better than the original, even though each is one fourth narrower. each of the narrower versions will be slightly different in their distancing of the background. one should be surperior to the other i would think, probably the one with the left cropped off, as the other side has more depth.
if you do this, please post the results. i'll put a "watch" on you, so i'll know if you do it. thanks for considering this. i think we would all find it educational...
This is really cool ^_^ I love the mist. Man, I wish I could do that, I mean, see that and be able to take a beautiful picture of it. Alas, I fear I may not be able to. Oh well. This is an amazing picture ^_^
