    Saw this stray gum boot washed being washed up on the shore at Mill Bay today, thought I would post it

    I kinda like it, but then again i'm biased. Honest critiques please!

    I like it. Is it just me or does it need a tad more contrast though?

    I don't see a problem with the contrast myself.

    Something about the bottom bothers me, I think it's just that teeny piece of rock in the left corner. I'd say bring the bottom up just a bit more to the middle of the other rock, then that piece wouldn't be pulling me away.

    Other than that, I think it's really nice!

    I agree with orie. I think more contrast would start to washout the highlights.

    :lol: @ Sid

    Contrast looks ok here, but the bottom of the shot is a bit cluttered. I like it though. :)

    Nice shot, I think the contrast is fine but a little more would not hurt

    IMO the shot would be nice with or with out the boot

    It took me a while before I saw the boot. I think it would be a great shot with a little less clutter but it is is a good shot now. :) I would have to be on photobug's side with this one.

    Clever to say the least! I think the elements are well placed. The way I see it the contrast is on target. Keeping detail in the sky is important for this photo.

    hmmm. i like the clutter. i think it makes the photo, in fact. certainly it helps create a diagonal, drawing the eye from the bottom left corner through the midground, continuing into horizon on upper right corner. gives the photo real nice depth.
    contrast looks great from here.

    i think Vonnagy is a spy.

    lol, what makes you say that?

    O, photogoddess, as soon as you posted i bumped of the contrast because that was exactly what was missing... I just forgot to mention that. So what you were saying was right on for about 30 seconds ;) Thanks for your keen eye!

    Thanks everyone for your thoughts on this, very helpful!
