I am not totally sold on these very crisp and detailed monos usually, (they tend to say filtered to me, tbh, but you'll probably say it's all done manually! It's certainly well done) but the subject of this one is excellent and the contrast between the crisp detailed foreground and the soft long exposure sky is interesting, so I do like this one. The only thing I am not keen on is the rock coming in on the left, which draws my eye. The overlap of the main subjects works really well for me.

I really like this image and B+W seems just right from my point of view however I find the tonal range over the whole image is very flat ie the tones in the foreground are just as strong as the tones in the mid and backgrounds. Add in the detail both in the beach the wreck and the horizon and for me the image starts to get very confusing and my eye has problems deciding what it should be looking at.

In my MOD I have tried to correct this by changing the tones in the beach, lifting the mid tones and highlights slightly while strengthening the dark tones. I hope this has now given the wreck a bit more definition and allowed it to stand out a bit more from the beach foreground.

What do you think?

I have no problem with your technique, but the wreck is too far gone. I know the area well, and the sea has done it's work here. Subjectively not my scene.

I like the way this has been converted, the lovely detail in the foreground and the dark sky all work well. The main subjects are a little cramped though, taking up just a third of the image and the wreck is almost merging with the raised shelf where Darth Vader (as it was called on one of my images) stands. So I would have liked a higher viewpoint to create some space between them. A good first upload....welcome to EPZ Wink

Welcome to EPZ. Really first rate image, well done. A little halo around that bit sticking up can be sorted out easily.


Regards
