Hi, Nice to be back..
This is a shot taken on my tour de Maithon Dam, India. Yesterday the sky was cloudy and didnot had a good light for nice photographs. SO, I had to convert it into B/w format to recover it from bad lights. Pls suggest - Is it a correct way to recover bad photographs???

Yes, you have done the correct thing, but I don't like the angle. If you are going to tilt the camera like this, try and not get the horizon in - the general effect is that you made a serious error, which I am sure is not the case.

You can get away with it if you get in close.

I really wanted to like this shot but the tilted horizon is not easy on the eye - otherwise great recovery in B&W - As far as your question - I think it is always good to have a look at improving a bad photo up to the point you just know it can't be improved, sometimes you find an unexpected surprise. A tutor once told me 'keep only those photographs that sing'. I remember that every time I hit the delete button.

I like the shapes made by the boats and the decorations on them, but I agree with the others about tilting the horizon. It makes the eye fall off the picture. If you had got in tight, it would have worked.

Thank you all for your opinions.. In a nutshell u disliked the tilted sky. I learned that tilted sky is not at all acceptable. I'll surely improve on that. Thank you once again for your suggestions and kindly keep suggesting.
Warm Regards to All
