    This is a photo I took out at our lake house. I like the outcome but I don't know if there is anything else I should do to make it look better.

    I dont really think there is anything you could have done to make it look better, i think its good, maybe alittle out of focus forground could help?

    which version do you prefer...color/duotone-b&w? i would decide which pleases you and focus on that one to tweak. IMO the image is not interesting, the composition is ok but my eyes are all over the place, landing occasionally on the ivy, but not for long. the duotone version is a bit more interesting. while comp remains, the hint of IR mingled with the duotone look intrigues me. i would work on this one and bump the contrast a little to help it pop!

    I prefer the duotone one but as for getting better at taking better photographs I would rather focus on the color version for getting advice, since that is the unphotoshoped version.. Don't know why I didn't post it in the first place.

    I'll try those things you said.

    i agree that should have been your submited version, but now that you've included the color version with some explanation i'm sure others will focus on it from here on out.

    I like the pic but one thing that spols it for me is the white area at the top, clone this away or crop it out all together. Ernie
