This image immediately reminded me of a great bath tub, with the 'plug' and 'chain' which has just been pulled to remove the soapy remains. The gorgeous light on the silky smooth water, certainly has a charming and comforting appeal, which I do find extremely relaxing.

Very nice image, can you combine this image and "The phenomenon of light" by having these colours and the angled chain? If you could I would love to see it. Smile

21 Sep 2012 - 9:43 AMConstructive Critique!This comment was flagged as constructive critique! 

I think you should invest in some better quality filters that don't give the photo such a high magenta colour cast. I had that difficulty when I used Cokin filters, especially if I stacked two or more of them. I use Lee and Hitech filters and the issue of a colour cast is almost gone. The Hitechs still have a cast when stacking three of them, but no where near as bad as Cokin.

I think the chain is a little over-sharpened and the waterline/horizon curves down towards the left. The distortion can be sorted out by using the transform tool in PS and selecting the warp tool or the distort tool. You can bring down a couple of guide lines from the ruler bar to make certain the horizon is straight.

I've seen this kind of shot composed with the main line of the subject placed centrally and it has worked very well.

As it is I like the shot and the chain is interesting as the main focal point, especially with the texture of the encrusted barnacles on it.

Alan.
