I can see why you were attracted by this but the colours look, to me, flat and the sky's very dark.
As Paul says, it is very dark; too dark for me too this time.
It's a De Havilland Dragon Rapide.
I like this, probably more than any so far.
I've uploaded a mod. in which I'd applied (the world's worst) layer mask to brighten the lighthouse without altering the sky but for some reason, the uploaded version is much, much brighter than the one I have here, so sadly, it's not much help to you.
Technically well done and once again, it's very dark, which I know is your intention but this time, I think it's a bit too much. The difference between the dark and light(er) areas is, to me, too extreme.
A good idea; the greyness of the surroundings works but the train's just a bit too well lit and is lit in isolation. The poles etc. in front of it would surely be illuminated too.
As has been said, it's an OK(ish) image, let down by one or two things.
I rather like this although it is very dark.
As has been said, I think that the colour is the biggest problem here. Setting the W/B to 'cloudy' won't have helped, although I don't know what colours were present when you took the shot.
It's no good asking me about composition. No-one ever agrees with me!
It works well enough for me,although I'm not sure about that sky.
I'm no fan of colour popping or selective colouring of any kind.
I guess that to generically call it a dragster would be correct insomuch as anyone with no real knowledge of drag racing would, unsurprisingly, assume that all drag racing vehicles are "dragsters."
Hi chuikudu, I've come here from your forum thread.
As you've said, you didn't want this to be "over the top" and in that respect, you've succeeded.
