1. In what area is critique to be sought?
I would like to have critiques on the composition, colours, shadows and highlights of this shot. I also would like to know how this shot could have been better.
2. What one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
I would like to know if its possible to achieve acceptable landscape photo without the help of an ND filter as mine was shattered when it accidentally drop off the lens as i was screwing it in to take this shot.
3. Under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
I was quite taken aback by the shattering of my B+W ND 110 filter on the rock, i was abit sad of course as i had only used this filter a few times in a year. I almost have no mood to shoot but the sky was really beautiful that day and so, i attempted it with exposure bracketing. I had no tripod as my missus thiought its too bulky (055 XProB) to bring it overseas and she doesn't want to check in our luggage (haversack), so it was done handheld while sitting on the shore.
4. What the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture.
I thought that this picture could do better, not in terms of just having the ND filter on, but also in terms of exposure, composition and the colour of the sky. I felt that it would definitely look better if the sky is slightly more reddish in colour. The foreground looks like it needs a bit more dodging to be done. As for the horizon, please let me know if its tilted or not as i have tried correcting it but somehow, my eyes just could not affirm if its straight or tilted still. :bsmilie:
Please share me your most honest critiques and tips as to how i can improve further and thank you for viewing.
