    I like the way the leafless trees have bent slightly with the prevailing wind to complement the curved roof structure.

    Yes, I like that too - well spotted! The tiny blue speck to the left is a bit once seen never unseen, but at least it's not red.

    I suspect the trees were already bent!

    I too like the way the trees echo the curves of the roofline - a nice piece of observation.

    I think the blue spot is a person and yes once spotted does draw the eye. Might be worth going back to the file and darkening or desaturating it.

    :cool:

    May as well do a B&W conversion, it is mostly grey with a blue person and a red reflection of some trees, could add a bit more contrast too.

    Or simply change the colour to something less conspicuous,

    I think it suits colour. Maybe bring the oranges down a touch more but overall a muted colour scene looks good.

    I tried SW, hm, but preferred the muted color picture.

    I just missed the little blue person, unbelievable...

    Not exactly Ulrich like use of colour and saturation is it.
    I see it as shape and form, the shape of the trees matching the roof line and the smooth man made surfaces contrasting with the complex detail in the tree branches.

    With the distracting cyclist cloned out and the ugly box on the right cropped - does this look better or just different? (I downloaded the image to work on, but will not keep it.)

    No, I think the wider shot is far better. Yours is far too cropped for my taste.

    A option. But in this version is no longer so well shown the force of the storms that bent the trees.

    me too

    RovingMike Crucifixion's a doddle...

    You could crop it, but just as it is it is a real piece of the New Topographics we were discussing.
