You've captured the action well here but the photo is rather lacking in contrast. I quite like the bright buoy in the pic! Smile

I've uploaded a mod for you.

Not wishing to contradict my fellow critiquer, but I wonder if that in such dull lighting conditions, making it very monochromatic, there would be much in the way of contrast anyway?

I reckon as it stands, it's a competently composed & exposed record of the prevailing weather conditions.

Maybe a mono conversion but leaving the buoy coloured, would be more effective.

I agree with Ex, a mono conversation will elaborate on the tones in this image and bring out more detail in the solid build works and the sea. It is a bit too flat on my eye and the increase in tones will give the photo more "punch".

Agree with the above. Contrast is the main issue. Was a challenge to try a mono conversion, and found a sepia toning and adjustments in levels and curves were able to tweak it.
