Spot on with the timing of the wave and getting that bloke there. I have tried a mod which may be a tad overdone but I tried to get a more balanced crop and heighten the contrast between the sky and wave, making the sea look more aggressive (got a few more artifacts than I would like though).

Very good shot of a very stupid man.

The exposure is a little under, - same point made in your last upload of the ship, - you can see if you notice that thw white water is actually closer to grey.

This is easily sorted out in Photoshop. I dont knpw your level of comfort with the programme, or the version you have, but I am inclusing a useful link in the event you can do this yourself.


Ive done this in the mod, and cropped a little differently, and in the process sharpened a little. Its a little soft, - and I may have mentioned before, - not sure, that you need to check your re sized image for sharpness before you upload. The tree is noticeably soft, and especially obvious in a silhouette. Your original is probably sharper. So, for uploading, the flow is re size image pixel size>save-as new file name>compress file to meet site requirements>save>OPEN the new file>check sharpness>adjust as needed>save>upload.


heres the link for curves adjustment:

Hope this is helpful.
