Is the sun a focal point? The watery surface attracts the eye as well?

Re: To edit or not to edit! that's the question?

I agree with you to a point Peter and that's why i included the pylon in an attempt to contrast the natural scene with the man made pylon. I sort of hoped the cables would tie the scene together a bit so to speak. For me it did add a bit of interest but i accept it's not the most interesting of images. Good discussion though so thanks for adding your thoughts.

Re: To edit or not to edit! that's the question?

They're both very warm autumnal scenes and I don't think there's anything wrong with either of them but as you asked...


In the first shot I wouldn't clone out the pylon.
I might be tempted to try and balance the gap to the edge between the pylon and the sun as they're already at almost the same height. I'd also consider cropping the bottom grass a bit.



In the second shot I would consider cloning out the wires if you're skills are up to it as there is nothing visible tying them into the scene so they look a bit odd. I'm more concerned with the sheep in the middle that seems to have fallen down a hole!

My thoughts



If you do not want the pylons move to avoid them.

If you wanted them but later do not like the effect bin it.


I wouldnt bother with that much editing myself.
