Chris, I've been looking at this for a while now and whilst I think it has a lot of technical merit, for me the subject matter is neither recognisable enough or strong enough to really grab my attention. Compositionally it should work, the square crop and the different layers with the grasses, mud/sand and then the sky really lead the eye in. However, I'm left wondering what the subject matter is. That said, I've spent ten minutes or so now looking at it so the image has had an impact on me which is what we are all aiming to do I guess. I hope my observations come across as constructively as intended
very well treated...love the vintage fell do it
very well done
An interesting result ...like it!
Like the treatment in this image, such great work.
Hi Dave, thanks for the crit. Always welcome.
To be honest, this is all there was of the bow of the sunken wreck, so I'm not sure how I could have made it more recogniseable other than to leave it in colour and name it better. Having said that, I quite like it as an abstract sort of image. I'm glad I set you a conundrum!!
I think this is wonderful and I like the painterly and fine art effect.
great piece of work
Excellent image and effect.
Interesting and intriguing image. JNC
Great shot, Chris, much better use of the vignetting.
Lovely comp. and treatment....had to be mono I think..
nice comp and treatment, and i like the way it fades off at the edges
Very effective presentation
I really like the effect on this image - extremely well done imo.
It does have an abstract feel about it. it works well in mono.
Thank you everyone for your kind comments.
A very interesting image and I like the way the strong textures of the structure work against the mud flats
Of the two, this version is my favourite. The shallow depth of field works well in putting more emphasis on the wreck. The background compliments it without taking any attention away from the main subject. The more I look , the more I love it, and the toning looks great.
great mono and excellent presentation!
Thanks Phil. Lovely to hear from you.
of the 2 i prefer this one, as the grain doesnt work for me. think you could crop to the horizon.lesley
I really like the effect you have created here
I really do like this, The composition looks great and with respect I have to differ with Daves comment about not seing what the subject is (but I guess we all see things things differently). This kind of subject is my sort of thing and you have captured this nicely.
