Assignment 5: reworked images

2 Comments

Based on tutor feedback I have reworked two of the images, and replaced a third. The revised magazine layout is below in slideshow format and linked as PDF version (new browser window/tab). The downloadable zip file has been updated accordingly. Before submission time I will do a refreshed version of the whole post, with the reworked images and layout included, with links to the original and this explanation of the rework, to show the progression.

Please click on the first image to start a full-screen slideshow.

Nice Carnival 2014

All of the amended/replaced images were on the spread of pages 2-3.

Arriving

2. Here they come! The floats start arriving down the Promenade des Anglais, not yet fully assembled

The original had  a spot of sunlight leaking in from the top, which was a bit distracting.

Rather than crop this out – as that would break up the semi-circular arch that acts as an internal frame, which to me is an important element in the image – I tried instead to tweak the image with a selective brush of highlight / exposure value reduction, to blend in with the surrounding blue sky:

Queen

5. Charlotte, Queen of Gastronomy

My tutor pointed out that essentially repeating the cover image, albeit with a looser crop, didn’t add anything.

I replaced it with a different image:

05 Cup - replacement

5. Very French – giant dancing coffee cups!

Acrobat

6. One of the many daring street acrobats

 Here the tutor simply recommended a tighter crop on the head and shoulders:

I’m happy that these amends improve the individual images and the overall presentation.
