    Very nicely composed - a shot making something of "nothing".

    Love the comp, but the tone seems a bit flat. Maybe it's just my monitor at work...

    This shot would look awesome with lots of contrast, IMO.

    No, it's definitely got the typical "18% gray autoexposure" thing going on. Needs moar contrast.

    thanks for the comments people! Good to hear you think it needs more contrast. I toned it down on purpose, thinking it would work better for this shot. But obviously not.

    reg: I'm not sure what you mean by the 18% gray autoexposure. This is not autoexposure (not that I mind, just curious).

    I second that the contrast and lightness need major enhancement, it will be a great photo after that, right now, it just feel flat and and it looks like it has been simply "Desaturated".

    Much better but i was thinking something a litle more drastic; I really hope you don't mind me giving you an example of what i mean:

    thanks for the comments guys.
    Kundalini: gotta love Cash. btw, I think those are not birds (don't know what it is)

    No problem. Thanks for the edit, you don't have to take it down. It is a bit too dramatic for my taste, but I see what you were looking for. Actually your edit looks more like the version I had before I posted the first one. But I started like that and thought 'lets go to the other side' and probably went too far.
