Nice shot author. There is a little too much green in the photo though, I wish I had seen this before the editing was closed so you could have made some changes. Good luck

great shot of knitting, is that the same as weaving?

Technically speaking yes, you could burn this out of the photo. That's not really what dodging and burning is for, but it could be used in this case to remove it.

I kind of like the visual aspect of this - but I have a question for you mods. This question has NOTHING to do with this entry per se, but it is a good example of what I'd like to know and an opportunity for (my) education. Here it is - given the new rules on "dodging and burning," would it be possible to dodge and burn over the date in this entry (for example), just leaving the time, and still be within the rules?

To be clear - I am NOT saying the date is a problem on this entry (like when they are there from the camera). I think it was on the clock so it's fine.

different light and background would have helped, and focus is not as sharp as it could be.

nice effort, although as an image, it is a little 'flat', nothing is 'pop'ping out

You photo has great potential author! Personally, for this contest I would crop just below the half cirlce "window" in the middle and then straighten it. Of course, this is just my opinion. I will hold my vote for now. Good luck author!

Awesome landscape, looks a little over-sharpened, but it's hard to tell as the High Res isn't very big.

well the focus really isn't on the socks but that's funny. My dog has booties for the winter (her legs are smaller than my pinky so they get frozen easy)

you can even go to picnik.com and rotate it there if you don't feel like downloading

avatar magicsteve

Download the free trial of Photoshop (if you don't have it already), then choose Edit>Transform>Rotate. From here you can rotate the image 'til your heart's content. If you are left with little white or transparent areas in the corners (due to the rotation), select the crop tool and crop those lil' buggers out. Hope this helps! All the best!

And the color adjustment does make the picture look sharper. Good job!

avatar magicsteve

What solkee said, but I'd also play with the shadows a bit to try and make the snowman less "washed out" looking. Great find!
