if you can crop the right side just a bit more to get rid of the shed - very nice
Thanks good note
The little bit of beach in the bottom right corner i dont really like, and the shed thing like cnco said, but i think this is awesome. if ya had a working light house id buy a print.
very nice atmosphere with the lighting and fog...
the composition seems a bit off to me though... it feels very wishy washy in terms of what your subject is...
what is your theme for the photo? if you had to have a 1 word title what would it be?
Nice light and atmosphere... I'd crop much of the sky out though... too much dead space for me. I'm thinking a non-standard wide crop would look nice.
That looks way down east there bub.
Eh, you have about the same amount of sky and waves. I think I'd like a crop with just a bit less sky.
I wonder what it would look like in black and white? Or with some cooler, blue-er tones?
Also, maybe bump the contrast a little bit.
Very nice photograph.
very nice pic, a touch more saturation or a slower shutter speed would have boosted the color a tad
You'd be surprised, as far as documenting what the Maine Coastline is like, this is pretty accurate (depending on if there's dense fog). Everything is kind of just gray.
Yeah..."gray"...that's the way it often is. Still, I think the image could benefit from some really careful image processing. It looks to me like the lower tonal values are a bit compressed, or to use the technical term, "all smooshed together". I think maybe the image would benefit from having the Levels set in the red,green,blue channels individually, and then having the tone curve adjusted, so that the darker tones have more what is called local contrast. This is a pretty decent source image, not a really "great" picture, but not too bad. A real Photoshop jockey could make this Pop! visually.
