    Black and White?

    Above is the original along with my cropped version and B&W version. I of course had to take out that nasty date imprint. I meant to take it off for this shot.

    As far as critique, I'm wondering if it could be cropped differently or if the lighting could be edited. I like the "widescreen" effect it gave it after it was cropped then resized again.

    If you would like to edit to your like, please do so. I tried it in black and white but wasn't sure how I liked that?

    I don't like the B+W.....too flat. But the color is simply wonderfull. Simple, clean and well composed. MAYBE a little more DOF would be nice to sharpen up the bottom drops just a tad....but thats really a minor suggestion to an already good photo.

    I bumped the saturation a bit and also did a quick levels tweak to darken it slightly. Looks a lot better IMO. Color of course.
