    a little more contrast for separation would work great. There's no real white in it either, just really bright grey.

    I'm sorry, did you miss the Zone train? Stay the hell out of zone 9.

    I actually think it looks quite good, and given the right paper could make for a pretty solid print.

    Contrast aside, I think the framing is equally problematic. Forget the grass. It's too darn dark.

    Ditto. Work on it in photoshop by fixing the levels and boosting the contrast.

    Great shot, though.

    I have to disagree with all of you. As you can see in the bottom of the shot, the shadows are already beginning to block up. Increasing the contrast would only exacerbate that problem.

    I think it looks pretty good as it is! I think that if you could get more of a grungy of worn out feel to it the mood would be better, but that is just my opinion and I have very little idea about how to go about it.
