Last evening the Harrisburg Camera Club held it’s second Digital Image Competition for the 2011-2012 club year. There was a total of 30 images that were previously provided to three judges for review and scoring. After a brief preview of all of the images the scores were revealed and the judges critiqued each individual image. My image, titled, The Last Leaves, received a score of 45 out of 60. Generally, all three judges liked the image. Two of the judges suggested that the image may look better if the section of tree in the lower right hand corner had been cropped out. Much to my delight, the third judge remarked, “This looks like an image that you would see in National Geographic.” Wow ….. needless to say this made my year…!! Here is the image I submitted along with a “cropped” version. Let me know what you think.Albums | Mt. Washington, Pittsburgh, PA | 2012 New Year Celebration

When I first saw this during the print critique night my thought was to crop it as well. Seeing both versions above I have to say I like them both but prefer the cropped.
Although it would break a Nat Geo rule, cutting the branch from the cropped section and pasting it into this version (reversed of course) gets you the best of both worlds.
I also like the fact that the man in the tree is not a pure silhouette but that you can see detail on his body. Nice photo no matter how you look at it.
