Good use of rods as lead in and the reflections add to this capture!
Excellent image, as its in the critique gallery i'd ask if there needs to be quite so much forground. And as i'm just discovering Picassa from google i'd done a mod and cropped and lightened the image.
I assume you used f10 or greater as its got good front to back sharpness.
Many thanks Trev for your comments and also to Stuart for comments and mod.
Much appreciated, Ian
The rods take us directly into the image and compositionally it's about right, according to the rules anyway. The water's edge on the far side's roughly on a third as aer the handles on the fishing rods.
It is, however, crying out for more sky to balance it which throws those thirds right out but (I think) still works.
Unfortunately, it also b*****s up the reflection but I think it shows what I'm getting at!
I've uploaded a mod. in which I've cloned I some sky and gone for a square crop.
It's a diferent take on your version completely so I hope it's OK.
Your comments and mod are very helpful.
Thanks for the comments Frank unfortunately the platform is at the bottom of a slope with trees to the left and right so it was a bit tight and the fisherman was being very patient.
I'll work on my compositions to try to get things right in the camera and post the details when I upload.
