Two Visions of Narnia

Visions of Narnia

I just stepped out the wardrobe, back from Narnia, where I have two visions. The top image is colour balanced via the shadows and midtones with a cutout filter added, the bottom image as I originally saw it with very little editing. Do you have a preference? Click on images for a closer look.

  1. So pretty pictures… I prefer the bottom image since this makes me think of a clear and crisp morning. The other one feels more like a cold evening.

  2. I much prefer the second, but I prefer to take my nature “natural.” It’s such a wonderful scene — I’ll say again, “Lucky you!”

  3. Perfect examples of how colour affects mood and “temperature”. Have you seen “Stranger Things”, Pete? The top photo reminds me of something you’d see in The Upside Down. (P.S. What’s a cutout filter?)

    1. I have never seen the series you mention, so I had to Google out of curiosity. Thank you for the comparison, Sally πŸ™‚ A cutout filter is an artistic filter used in Photoshop to alter images, an added effect if you like, as the intial image appeared to me to be quite fairytale and I just wanted to elborate on it.

  4. I prefer the bottom image not because of the color difference but because I see more detail in it than the blue cast image.

  5. I prefer the second.
    (and it does remind me of when the film first shows the step out of the wardrobe in to the snowy woods).

  6. My own choice would be the second as I like b&w photography, but the top image definitely shows that extra magic can be created to specification. Both lovely in their own right, but obviously the ‘right’ image is the one you would be happiest with in line with what you wanted. πŸ™‚ We had rain overnight, think our bit of snow will be gone today.

    1. This one was one those when I was not sure what I wanted, so I decided to do both in the end, leaving one as the original shot. Thank you for your lovely comment, Jill πŸ™‚

    1. I did consider just putting out the single image and making it black and white, but decided to do the versions as seen. Thank you πŸ™‚ They are Silver Birch trees, and I have always loved their droopy branch nature.
