  • Does the split tone improve the image

    I have just started playing with converting RAWs to B&W, including using split tones.

    Does the added split tone improve the overall quality of the image?

    Also is the composition too busy?

    Looking forward to your comments,

    Each has a different feeling; very subjective. But since you asked about composition, I have to ask back: what is your subject? My sense is it's more the stuff on the left. Which means you have a lot of dead space on the right, like between the two columns. I might suggest cropping in from the right to the inner column. (I'm doing this from memory because with attachments, apparently responder cannot see the images)

    Hope that helps!

      Thanks for your comment!

      I was trying to create a triangle with the lines connecting the lion, fountain and large cypress tree.

      I also wanted to capture the perspective from standing inside the structure. That is why I choose to leave the 2 columns on the right in the shot.

      I have cropped out one of the colums and it definetly moves the eyes to the triangle as desired!

      Thank again.
