    nice idea! .. however having it straight horizontally aligned and dead centre does not really create tension.

    Do you only have this shot of it, or did you take it from different angles?

    Maybe I would also increase contrast in post processing.

    Yea. The driftwood looks too similar to the rocks around it, which doesn't really spark anything. If you increase the white, and maybe crop the right side a little, it would definitely be more eye-catching.

    Hi Chris, nice find ... did you take this in black and white only?
    Or is this a conversion?
    There are only few contrasts here, which doesn't help, and you got a teensy-weensy bit of camera shake which no pp will ever be able to disguise, I'm afraid.

    Neat idea. Unfortunately, it looks a bit fuzzy.

    No I converted it to black and white and yes I got a bit of cam shake I get it in almost all of my shots now for some reason.
