    Maybe...it may need just a tad of highlight in the photo for the bnw photo to work well.

    This is basically a very well taken photograph.

    Just a quick question? Did you shoot in the camera's b&w setting? Most camera's b&w setting produce pictured that are very grey and lacking in definition of b&w pictures. Personally, I like a little more contrast in b&w. Cheers!

    Is it tilted slightly to the left?

    I don't know the pic is technically good but I don't feel the emotional connection.
    Either that or I'm a cold-hearted *******.

    Hi, it was shot in color but it took me quite awhile to choose to do it in B&W for some reasons. Contrast noted.

    Hi, if you look at the "jetty", is tilted but look at the horizon is actually straight. Have also check before PP. Is ok, everyone have different view. Thanks

    Hi Smiles88,
    Yes, the contrast is very great from the left to the right side. The sun is behind the left shinning to the right through the centre horizon. So is natural for the left to have more shadow and darker in contrast. But your C&C is noted. Thanks

    Looks good in all areas. But I wished the water was completely smooth to bring out the extreme calmness. Two thumbs up!

    Hi Manita.

    Sorry haven't been able to give to too much feedback recently. Very busy recently.

    This is a very nice piece of work. I like the layers of the scene here. from dark to brighter... and the picture looks very 3D to me with lots of depth. Well done.

    One thing you can try doing is to push contrast a little more. But you need to push it with more fill light in the left shadow section... If you are using lightroom, I would push fill-light more, and at the same time, balance it back by also pushing blacks. This will give you more contrast, but also allow you to push up the lights in the darker areas. After that, I would push mid-high tones and highlights a little more.

    But seriously, it is more personal preference. Another thing to note is when you are printing your pictures. This picture will print out quite a bit darker. So it helps to push it a little more when doing actual printing to photo paper.

    Hope this helps you. Very well done!

    not a bad composition, maybe crop some of the left off?

    i would not present it in bnw this way, something with more contrast would be my preference.
