photoblog image A little winter landscape 2

A little winter landscape 2

I've cropped this every which way, gone b&w and all sorts of variations. Then I thought It looked wonderful as it was. This is as good a picture as I could get and I hope it gives you some idea of how lovely it was.

The composition is spot on, but what caused the halos around the branches?
Bill Phillips: Over sharpening! I posted the wrong version!!
Very nice composition Bill. I like the lace effect in the branches
Bill Phillips: Thank you Richard
Good colours here, Bill
Bill Phillips: Thank you Chad
I wasn't sure whether the halos were an intentional effect. I quite like them - they make the scene look frosty. It would be interesting to see the intended version.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Ian..they weren't intended. I've just looked at the original picture and the tree is basically a silhouette. I think I prefer this!!

Compositionally, it is very good and I like the beautiful subtle light. The branches do look a little unrealistic though.

Bill Phillips: Thanks Ingrid. Actually although I didn't intend the halo (unsharp mask has its' limitations) I'm starting to like the effect!

Lovely composition - looking forward to the unhaloed version if you decide to post. ;o)
Bill Phillips: Thanks Mike. I did do a cropped version and I might post that, possibly as a black and white.

I thought it was me seeing the halos on those tree branches. I really like the composition Bill.
Bill Phillips: No your eyes are ok. Over sharpening. Actually I'm getting to quite like the halo!

It's lovely Bill, even with the haloes - which I like.

I wonder - did you use site sharpening when you uploaded it?
Bill Phillips: I never use the upload sharpening I do it in photoshop. So it is all my faultsmile Actually I think I like the halo so I'm glad you do. Thanks Ellie
Wonderful ! I love trees shots ! Bravo !
Bill Phillips: Thank you Zeb..so do I!
