what do ya think
Seems rather snapshottish. No real composition evident (50% of water, 50% of sky, very snapshotty). The fog is nice and the exposure seems good though. Cutting off the boat on the right edge, bad idea.
never mind: maybe this one
thanks I need to get over that to many years shooting snap shots
The second one is a bit better. Try taking the second shot and cropping in closer to the boat (crop out of the area above, and some below, and a lot to the left, and some to the right.) Then up the contrast a fair bit, throw into black and white, and you could well have yourself a nice lookin' shot!
Heya harlanr3, welcome to ThePhotoForum - nice to have you here.
I think that if you follow Trenton's ideas with your second photo shown here, you might really get somewhere. Don't forget to straighten your crooked horizon line in the process.
What do you work with?
Do you save them out of Photoshop, maybe? Don't save them at their highest resolution, for Photobucket will then feel free to resize/condense them as they like, and that ruins the quality. Save them at a lower res (not too low, just not 12) and upon loading them up, they will be left alone.
And watch the sharpening tools. Those want to be used with care!
