My thoughts would be it's a strong pyramidal comp but sadly the FG blends into one due to lack of contrast or differentiation between rocks and veg. I don't know if that could be corrected at the mono conversion stage through using the channels. If not then I'd do selective curves to lighten the rocks and darken the grass because those FG rocks are great and need to stand out more! Smile

Thanks guys, i appreciate the feedback. I do agree Alan about the lack of contrast, and appreciate some good critique, I'll have a play around using your suggestions and see what i can do! Smile Something was bothering me about the image, and its been a while since I processed a mono, and I think you've hit the nail on the head!

Thanks Adam for the UA too, made up Smile

Cheers
Mark
