I think there’s too much blue here, for the aesthetic of this kind of shot. It’s quite simple, quite graphical, and that kind of picture has to be very strong like sculpture. I do have some such photographs in my collection where you see a clear sense of ‘less is more’. I like this photo and include it in my collection, but I know I’ve got better images showing this Zen like idea. I edited it very little. All I did was trim off a little of the composition at the right, increase the saturation slightly, and employ the Noise Ninja filter calibrated for 100 ISO. I find the latter a simple and effective sharpening tool, avoiding the need for complex Photoshop procedures which I don’t like.
