    my thoughts to but I also had the thought that there is two pictures in one. Each side is almost a picture unto itself.

    Just my opinion, my eye spends a lot of time on this picture, looking for something to "look at". My eyes tend to focus on the man fishing on the left, and on the family on the right, ignoring the structures. I tried several crops, (mostly focusing on fishing guy), and none seemed quite right. I actually like the subtle "tone" (ok, gray scale) variations on the shed, and the guy fishing seems to tell a story, so that's probably why I'm focusing more over there.

    And then if you cut that away what is left is also a story, so that was my problem both make an image that's okay but either alone would as well.

    What bothers me is the sky.... It's just one white mass.

    I think the pano is the only way to fly here... There is no actual sky to highlight any cloud formations, and the pier line offers a flow..


    """ I will take the hit on anything "" ( Quote )

    I feel as a black and white this isn't working... sky is gone, and tree line center frame is to black... as a B+W it lacks contrast..

    It has the feel to me of a color shot gone bad, and thinking that a B+W was a cure...

    I also think the feeling you get of this being two separate shots ( Two Pictures In One ) comes from the fact that you centered a light pole, running vertical, dead center in the frame... this definitely gives that illusion...
