Second “shot” at a photo

Grey Nuns II
 Originally uploaded by robtain

Based on feedback, I went back to my downloaded images and cropped a shorter focal length version of the Grey Nuns doorway shot that I posted earlier.

This version should be a little bit more balanced. I find that the effect of the door colour is diminished a bit, but overall it’s a nicer shot. I wonder if I should Photoshop the branches out of the frame…

Time to move on to something else…

Experiments in Photography

Grey Nuns

This is a picture that I took while walking around in Montreal last week. It is the front door of the Grey Nuns convent. I pumped up the saturation a little in Aperture before posting this.

I’d like to go back and redo this shot. A critique that I received in Flickr suggested that it might benefit from a better balance between the right and left of the door way.
