I am verysorry sonsdad, I left the description. This shot has been taken in a seabeach of Andhrapradesh, India. The man ( he is not a woman), I saw searches something in the seabeach after the tourists leave it. One day I asked him what he searches everyday? I revealed the fact , he searches Seashells, conches etc. he collects them and sell them to artisans who make and sell handicrafts. By selling these, he earns a meagre money with which he runs his family.

Another potentially good image here Pradyoth, i do have a few pointers :-

1) Placement of the man within the frame is not really ideal, as of now he's too close to the edge, a little more towards the left would place him nicely on a thirds creating more impact
2) The image could do with a little brightening and some contrast adjustments @ 8.00 am in the morning there would be a little more light than what we are seeing here

Cheers and hope this helps

The critical requirement for a shot like this is that the horizin has to be level, and its off a little.

With it straightened, its a nicely timed shot. The man is a little close to the edge, however for me it works in a way as the frame is so wide.

The underexposure is there, which when addressed makes the shot quite bright, and it loses a little of the atmosphere of the original.

Ive loaded a mod with crop, straighten and exposure addressed.


regards

I quite like this in general, but it is a good stop under exposed. Large area of brightness has fooled your meter. I don't mind his position but would prefer him clear of any background rocks so that he stands out more against the water. Brighten it a bit and you have a nice shot.
