    TibiTibi , Sep 2, 2019 :

    You've captured a photo with your lovely phone. Later you run through the gallery. You are looking at the selected photo and you feel it that the photo is quite good. But there is something that is not ok. It is hard to find what maybe... but you have that feeling. Sometimes this feeling comes later, 5 seconds, minutes, days after posting the photo.

    You try to zoom in. Moving the picture there and back...

    You are asking yourself or others...
    • What is bugging there?
    • Why it looks unfinished?
    • How to improve it?
    • Is THIS the photo to share here?

    I'm Tibi aka TibiTibi
    and maybe I can help you to...

    Rethink the photo.

    I'm critical. Be careful.

    Maybe you'll find the real answer to your questions:
    • Why I captured this?
    • What is the reason I want to share the capture?
    Maybe I'll tell you the answer to:
    • Should I capture it again?
    • Should I edit the photo to improve it?
    So if you want to look at the photo like me feel free to reply here.

    So I will start with my photo from the header.
    I've totally changed color tones of the original photo using the Photoshop Express - PSX.
    I wanted to enhance the mood and the scene shifting the real colors and cropped to catching proportions.

    Here is the original. Unedited.
    Captured with Oneplus One in Norway.
    It was a cool and misty morning in Gudvangen Fjord.

    What is your opinion?

    See you later.

    Sometimes your photo could be selected from existing threads if it qualifies.

    Of course you can post here your photo for critical eye. Don't forget the story or question to pack to the photo.

    I find it hard keeping the alignment when taking photos. Here I paid attention on the part in the middle and didnt see that on the bottom of the photo its unaligned. But this totally catches my eye :( :p

    i'd really love to be part of a oneplus photo tour to learn from- and try with other people

    Thank you for the first entry.
    This is a nice example to rethink the photo.

    Todays Rethink is about one perfect photo.

    I have selected the amaxing photo of a famous @NeVeR_SeTTLe to finish it for myself.
    I really like the original.

    This Rethink is about to create rather a more unreal view. I was not there. So I will play with imagination.


    After tunings I ended with this.

    thank yourself for nice scene full of inspiration.

    From metalic blue to aubergine :D

    PS: There are two objects on the photo which drag my attention. The pinky house and the high contrasting sunny area. I was try to unbalance them. With no success. My eyes are playing ping pong. :D
