With Majkl20's authorisation, I propose a reworked verson of his Golden gate. 1) I rotated a little to level the horizon line 2) I cropped the picture to avoid the concrete at left 3) A little colors and contrast correction. What do you think ? :-)

Very nice rework Pierre. Removing the concrete has sure brought the focal point to the bridge. Good work:-)

Please respect someone's original work even when a rework can look better. This my idea.

Joost: I asked (and received) permission from the author. Didn't you understand the meaning of the 'Rework' gallery ?!?!
On the 'Portofino RW' you wrote " I am not a specialist, but i think ,it's a beautiful manip.Well done,Pierre". What changed?

Thanks Darryl ... ;-)

"Simply look with perceptive eyes at the world about you, and trust to your own reactions and convictions. Ask yourself: "Does this subject move me to feel, think and dream? Can I visualize a print - my own personal statement of what I feel and want to convey - from the subject before me?" Ansel Adams

That other is from 3 month ago, Mr. Pigeon, but my idea is that the original should stay, ideas can changes during that time.

Credit I would say goes to both the creator and editor, both helped make the picture, did they not?

I like both images!
And, being just a beginner, I find reworks very useful to see what can be done with more or less simple means to alter a picture - it's a way of "learning by seeing".

Nice rework. Taking the shot in a little bit defitily helped helped the focal point. Nice job to both the original photographer, and the rework artist

Much better than the original, and a fantastic shot from Majkl20! Good thing that the concrete on the left is now gone.

The rework shifts the focus to the bridge. However, now we have a chain floating in mid-air. Possible solutions: crop from the bottom, clone the water over it, bring back the concrete post, live with it. What do you think?

Yes. You're right about the "floating chain". But the view of the pier at bottom-left shows an attach between the chain and the ground. You can do a RWbis with your own ideas! That's the interest of this gallery. Thanks for your feedback :-)

The concrete was what I call an "eye catcher". It draw the focus away from the main image. By eliminating it, you put all the focus on the bridge. Great shot!! Great rework!! Kudos to both of you!!

I like the chain. It gives the picture depth, I think. Nice job on a rework of an already good pic
