Yes, they are trees in Hyde Park – & it’s not so much the trees that are imperfect (how can trees be imperfect!), but the photos. They were taken on a dark day and therefore were not crisp, sharp or otherwise perfect. In fact, woefully imperfect.
So,I have played with them a little.
If it is not too much trouble, I would value your opinion on whether these photos are acceptable.
This was a shot of a group of trees. I liked the framing, but there wasn’t enough light.
One of my favourite trees. It’s in a spot that doesn’t get heaps of light & there are many photos of this tree I am not happy with. So this time, I played with it a little. I kinda like the effect. What do you think?
Same type of tree, but a different one. Again, it grows in an area where light seldom comes in strongly. I’ve usually avoided photographing it because of that, but this day, I did. It looks proper spooky now.
A group of Moreton Bay figs.
An oak that grows along a path, usually in shadow.
Another oak, usually comes out much clearer, but the day was grey and clouded.
One of my favourite trees in the park, and usually comes out well as it is nicely positioned for sunlight. Not this day though.
the path from William/Vincent Street corner into the park. These didn’t suffer too badly as the sun was shining when I took these photos, but I played with them anyway.
This is another path and it is always dark, but I love the shapes of trees and the light on the tree at the end. I like the effect. It intensifies the darkness & adds mystery. Do you agree?
Please, I would really value your opinion.
