Recently city crews cleaned out the hedge that bounds Ross Bay Cemetery and the east end of Dallas Road.
I liked the way it looked before, but the newly exposed tree trunks can light up nicely at this time of year.
With this image I struggled with the following questions:
1. In the original framing above is that foreground tree too much in the middle? And regardless of that
2. Should I have focused on the nearest tree, or a bit further along as I chose at the time?
3. The square crop below leaves me uncertain, and a bit cold.
4. The third version, which maintains the original aspect ratio, seems to suffer the same problems as the original.
5. How important is that last black tree trunk in the original next to the light standard? Can the light standard go?
6. Perhaps a portrait orientation is called for. With that one, Q2 is resolved, perhaps Q5 as well.
