I saw this at the beach yesterday. No signs of life, other than the tent. C&C appreciated.
That is a great B&W image, great composition.
Good B&W conversion. Could use a little more contrast. I like the detail in the clouds.
Very nice shot! Composition is dead on! But I'd like to see a tad more contrast in the sky if possible. I think it would add to the dramatic statement (not sure what that statement is, but I think it would add to it)
Thanks! I tried messing with the white point, but let Photoshop do it automatically. It brightened the photo as a whole (thanks for that tip, never used it before). I then tried adjusting the contrast, but it didn't look right. Instead I used the unsharp mask, which I think helped. I then tried increasing the contrast in only the sky, but that actually brightened it, so I barely burned the sky and also the sand (which had become a little too bright after the white point adjustment. Here is the after. What do you guys think?
