other than the slanted horizon
And you're bashing my pictures.
This one's fucking boring.
and seagulls are so exciting
The photo is lacking contrast and overall sharpness. There is no focal point for my eye to go to. It just seems to wander all over the photo.
1. Burn in the sky to add contrast between it and the clouds.
2. Adjust overall levels or use a different method to converting to BW besides mode > grayscale. (If you don't know what I mean, PM me).
3. Slightly rotate the photo to fix the horizon line
4. If possible, go reshoot it so you can fix the focus problem
I was going to crop the pic to make it look good for you but I can't even see anything worth cropping... Plus even though you made the picture greyscale doesn't mean that the picture can't be too dark. You definately need to adjust the levels of this baby!
haha. looks good to me eagle.
I agree with slapey about the contrast and sharpness. It either needs a greater DOF or a much shallower one to draw the eye to what you want it to see, right now its kind of confusing.
here are my suggestions:
Move to your left more and shoot more towards the center of the water so the shore line goes from the upper left to the bottom right and make it your focal point. if there was something in that area that has a focal point, use it. My eye wonders too. and it just isn't a b&w photo if you ask me
