Accurate front to back sharpness. BG a bit ordinary
A more dramatic BG storm clouds/fluffy clouds/a Ship
Etc would raise it's viewability.

Love the composition and perspective. I agree with Col that it needs a more dramatic sky to give it that little bit extra, and I would of probably cloned the sign out on the railing. Once I saw it my eyes kept wandering back to it.

In Harwich its the only background one gets Smile

No chance of stormy clouds on a relative clear day Smile so unless I swap the sky around...... then I am cr@p at manipulation and it would turn out even worse Smile

Thanks for your comments anyway, I am still not quite happy with it, there is something I really cant place.. that is why I put it up.
maybe it is the fluffy clouds missing Smile

I'd much prefer to see a good take of a natural sky than an imported sky that looks 'wrong'. This works for me.

Everyday scene, well captured. The wide angle treatment suits the subject. There's a subtle comparison between the rusty metal anchor and the new seat. Great shot....Andy I

This has far more impact than the others on this trip, the position and strange angle of the anchor really grabs you up-front.

looking at the big one, there appears to be a few sharpening issues - maybe a little too much USM applied?

Also to the left in the sky the clouds appear to be yellow, whereas just to the right of them, they are pure white. This happens at sunset, but here it looks as though it may be to do with burning in some detail in post processing? Try using fine curves layers then using the grad tool to fade the effects in - avoids edges showing

I think it's a great idea and with a little more attention in the post processing, you'll have a winner

Thanks for the tips, I don't know what fine curve layers are and I can never get the grad tool to do anything useful, yes I am learning post processing too! Smile

well just get a curves later up - in teh curves palette, at the bottom there's a round button, click that and you get a list of "adjustment layers". Curves is in there.

Just pull the topright up a little to brighten the highlights, pull the bottom left down to darken the blacks.

if you just do a little adjustment, I call it a "fine curves layer".
