Great Capture. Where is the location?
Im not Will Chung, but if he is the fantastic photographer I think he is I am flattered!
Back to this one.
Theres a few problems. One I noticed in the last is that you dont appear to be checking that your re sized shots for EPZ are sharp. After re sizing, - due to compression, some shots lose a lot of sharpness, and if this happens, just apply some more sharpening. I had to apply a substantial amount to this to make it look as I believe the original might have been. ( I am assuming the use of a tripod at 1.3 seconds of course)
Next is composition. The horizon is not on a third, and theres possibly too much width. You can certainly crop from the right to remove those black objects that seem to be intruding. Yoy can throw the horizon off a third when you are adding a frame, so keep an eye on it and adjust the frame as needed.
Then the horizon is very slightly off horizontal.
The script, - and perhaps you are new to it is also very close to the bottom, so you need a smaller font, or more border. When the type tool is selected, and the type layer is highlighted, you can drop down the font size and select a smaller one and the type changes on the fly.
I loaded a sharpened nod, with quite a bit more contrast and colour as the original appears soft and pastel, - the mod is more dramatic, and Ive cropped as I mentioned.
Hope you find this both helpful and constructive,
This is a nice shot but, to me, it lacks balance because all the interest is on the right-hand side. There's nothing to make me want to look to the left. Since the two 'stepping stones' are pointing directly at the headland, a portrait orientation showing just the right-hand side would be more effective, I think.
Always check around the edge of the frame for things that are missing and things that shouldn't be there. You've shaved off the bottom of the nearest 'stepping stone' and there's a little black blob on the right-hand edge, at about the level of the second one. The latter probably can't be composed out but it's easily cloned.
Watch your focus, too. At 17mm and f/14, depth of field is essentially infinite. Focus on the nearest 'stepping stone' and everything should be perfectly sharp. Sharpening has helped in Willie's mod but the nearest parts of the stone are still a bit off.
Thank you all for your constructive critique This has given me inspiration and made me look at things a different way,. I mod the shot in a portrait format but I am not sure which i like best. thanks again to all of you.
Portrait looks better to me. By the way, in producing the mods, you've introduced a noticeable halo around the promontory. This may have come from sharpening with too high a radius. A radius of 0.8 is usually a good place to start for a photo like this which is sharp to begin with and just needs crisping up a bit. Either set the strength to 100 and adjust from there or do as Willie does and set it to the maximum and then reduce it until all the unwanted artifacts (such as haloes and harshness of fine textures) goes away. Whatever radius you use, avoid haloes and so on; smaller radii will let you use larger strength.
