Good composition and inclusion of elements. The clouds and reflection in the water is dramatic, and the angler adds that bit of human interest to this piece, preventing it from becoming just another waterscape/ sky shot.

However, the colour is a little on the cool side, and I think you may have waited a little too long after the sun has set before capturing the image. If the image was taken shortly before the sun has set, there will be a very warm, enchanting orange-red glow across the objects in the frame and also in the clouds. Alternatively, take the photo just minutes after the sun has set. At this time there is still light in the sky, which will be turning blue. A deep red colour is also sometimes present in the clouds.

Nice work.

no problem ... there are two ways to solve this problem by the way, either you shoot from a higher angle so that the person's image rest on the water background nicely or shoot with full colour so that the person can be differentiated from the background, but the former would be better, the latter probably will not work given the dim lighting.

Ah...fair enough. But that also means that I'm colour blind and need to get my eyes checked up. :bsmilie:

But going back to the picture, a coloured version would probably do the scene more justice, although experimenting with parameters in B&W was also good.

Hi Gavin....hope you don't mind me playing around with your pics.
I kinda like this photo....so I up the saturation, feathered here and there to give
it a little more mood.

Spooky? No lah....trying to portray a picture of an in coming storm.
Kit lens or otherwise, it is the person behind the camera that counts.
