This is a nice shot!
Refreshingly different - I like this. Nice tones and a "different" approach to composition here, breaking the rules in a nice way. There's rhythm with the huts, a nice diagonal to follow left-to-right by "hopping" from tree to tree, and a very nice blue in the sky to keep us positive and wanting to go out and be there.
I like this image, it has a nice mood to it and an air of suspence as others have already commented.
I like this, technically superb shot. My only issue is that I feel there's a bit too much RHS for this image, and a tighter crop would probably fit the image better. There's a lot of space on the right hand side that can be removed with no loss to the compositional quality of the image. Just my 2 cents - regardless I still think this is a superb pecker shot!
Three nice images showing different aspects and the versatility of a wide-angle lens. My only qualm is with the small white element at the bottom of V1 - I think you can easily clone it out and remove the minor distraction.
The image has a quiet and "solemn" feel to it, particularly through the use of B/W and its softness. I like this as it also conforms with my "simple and effective" mindset! Well done.
The pose is interestingly different, though I think I would have shot from slightly more to the right to show a bit more of his (left) hidden eye. Also, the nose wouldn't be that close to the edge of the cheek in the final image. Secondly, as regard negative space, I have to agree with Willie that a bit more is needed, but I'd also include some more negative space up to, where the person is actually looking. Leaving a blank space on the right helps, but there should be some up to as well in my opinion, to reinforce the "praying" mood that this conveys to Willie as well as myself. Just my 2 cents.
A wider aperture would have made the DoF a lot shallower, so if you wanted more depth then the choice of f/11 was correct - the choice of setting, be it shutter speed, aperture or any other controllable aspect will always influence how your image turns out. In this case, I think your conscious decision to use f/11 was the right approach.
Thanks for the credits. You could have also enabled Modifications on the original image from the Options menu for the image, and others would have been able to come up with their modification. You could have also uploaded this as a second version of the same image.
Nice idea here, simple but effective to send across a "rememberance" message. I even like how the poppy is not upright and sort of simulates the "fallen", at least in my mind.
