Everyone - Question? Do you think the red object in the left foreground is distracting? I have debated getting rid of it but can't decide. Please let me know.

I didn't even notice it until you asked and I went back and looked. I don't think it is. Your image is Wowzers! Really surreal. I love it!! #9310924

Toby Drye 3/22/2011 8:06:33 PM

Thanks Lydia! I am perplexed about the object, but I will go with your recommendation. I very much appreciate it!

I love the composition and the treatment, and didn't notice the red object either. But I might try it with and without it and see which looks better. #9311482

Good advice Laura! I will proceed with that and post the results. #9311759

Toby, You've outdone yourself! This is superb, please enter it in the contest. I didn't notice the red till you mentioned it but once you did it became distracting. How about selecting it and just toning it down?

Toby Drye 3/23/2011 6:35:01 AM

I guess can't read? I meant to say - Thank you Michelle! I also need to say to Laura - Thank you! I will tone it down and post here. #9312055

I keep coming back to the original. Now it is really bugging me... What is the red object. It looks like some old piece of equipment... If it is, I think it should stay. If it's some modern day thing, then I like both the submissions where you toned it down and actually removed it. But I want to know what it is. Some old farm equipment maybe? #9313276

I think it is an old wheel barrel. I am going to delete it plus the rest of your suggestions. #9313452

Toby this image is awesome! You've been holding back! First impression was the overall comp - and my eye was not drawn to the red at all. I don't think it necessarily adds so much that it would be missed. #9362294
