Wow. It seems that my pictures are SO desolate that they've scared everyone away!
No one wants to comment??
Well...there's not really a lot there to comment about!
Welllllllllll, there are 2 pictures, for one.
Although I agree, there's not much IN the pictures, but I'm sure you can work around that!
I think the problem is that there is so little contrast that the horizon is almost invisible. The second one looks better because the wood provides a little contrast, but it's not enough. IMO there needs to be some contrast between the water and sky and/or something to give the horizon some defintion, but the overall composition looks good to me (although the first one looks a tad tilted). Maybe a little post processing would fix them right up. I can't really say because I can't photoshop to save my life.
Just my opinion and you should probably take it with a grain of salt because I'm a total new to photography as it is.
Hmmmmmmmmmmm, now that you mention it, the first picture IS a tad tilted. I'm surprised I missed it, I'm usually very quick to notice!
Thanks for your comment.
I like the 2nd picture.
I will go into it a little more
They are both pretty good pictures, its just there is a lack of connection for me. In the first picture I'm searching for a subject. In the 2nd picture.. the wood draws my eye and gives the image some.. hmm.. character i guess you could say.
I would say that the lack of comments is due to nothing fully standing out to people. They are good shots, but I would think some are like me and just havent formed a connection with the picture.
Not too bad of shots, could use a tad more contrast/color... unless you were going for the low contrast look... which is cool too, just not my cup of tea
I prefer the second picture, like most people above I feel that the wood in the foreground gives the image a focus.
Having said that I would have been tempted to get down lower and try and fill the bottom half of the frame with the driftwood a bit more.
I do like the 2nd better. The sky is bland so having only 1/3 sky and 2/3 subject is better.
