Thanks for taking a look !
Problem is I'm not sure what to focus on, the shiny rocks to the left or the beautiful waterfall on the left, I mean there's too much in the middle. It looks better in bw.
I'm focusing on the water. :greenpbl:
I like it. Would love to see it in B/W like you said. Just to see if there is a difference.
Thank you very much for the comments !
I think it really lacks a subject. Its nice, but there's really nothing to focus on.
Many (all?) of Dwayne's images are more about the mood than anything else. In this sense, his rate of success is pretty high. I like this particular shot and enjoyed looking at it.
The B&W conversion killed the mood and basically eliminated the lines created by the rocks in the background; these lines were what gave unity to the whole scene. In addition, about 30% of the conversion is pitch black with no detail. Not sure how all this improves the original photo.
Just my 2 cents.
