Glad you liked Ken. Did the image look sharp when you first clicked on it? On my monitor, it doesn’t — which I gather is a pretty typical WordPress problem. The solutions appear to be either: (1) keep the images fairly small so they don’t go soft when downsized or (2) use plug-ins that eliminate the problem but require a more expensive plan.
Very nice! The branches of that tree have just the right blur to them, and the raindrops just the right clarity, and the colors glow. Looking at your reply to Ken, I can’t tell for sure about sharpness. It’s not super sharp, but that seems nice. I like it the way I see it, in other words, but it’s fairly small so it’s hard to say how sharp it is.
Thanks for the feedback on sharpness. When you say the images are fairly small, I do hope that instead of only looking at the home page thumbnails, you’re clicking on an image to view the slide show gallery. There, photos seem softer than they actually are, but are acceptable for the most part — except for this one, where the drops of condensation (not rain) are way too soft.
(The View full size option is much closer to the original, but I hate the way it’s displayed against the top of the page.)
I did/do click on them – why did I say it was small? I’m not sure. It’s frustrating sometimes to see your work not looking the way you know it can look.
Thanks Lynn. I think my older monitor makes problems look worse than they actually are.
The colors (oh, those blues—with that orange!), shapes, and overall composition drew me in even in the thumbnail, but clicking through to the full-res image was very rewarding. I didn’t even pay attention to the condensation in the smaller versions. In the largest version, it’s essential. Lovely lovely photograph.
Thank you Linda. When everything clicks (pun intended), it’s nice to notice it. Only wish I had a penny for every moment missed :)
