Abandoned Pier

By sbrentbill
On a bright and big cloud afternoon took a walk along the water and shot this photo of the old pier and beautiful large cloud.

Would have been better if you could have removed the stray branch sticking down into the frame... it's important to always do a quick check round the edges and corners before you press the button. And it would be helpful to us if you could have included the EXIF data from the camera. Perhaps you "saved for web" ? ... That strips the data from the file. It's better to just do a normal save and upload the full sized file- the site will automatically look after the rest, and the exif information will be preserved.
Apart from that though, it's a rather nice well composed picture. I particularly like the light and shadow on the pier.

A quite lovely scene and well composed around the jetty. I have done a mod, not as a correction, but just personal taste.

That branch is a distraction indeed. My eye goes straight to it rather than explore the scene.

I made a small crop so the cloud touches the corner of the frame so it mirrors the jetty. In fact the positions of the cloud and jetty balance each other so that's a nice bit of composition.

This benefits from seeing some detail in the wood so I liofted the shadows. I then boosted contrat in the sky and cloud. Again it's only subtle but it makes a difference.

As this is all about shapes my second mod is mono where I made a bigger difference between the wood, land, sky and clouid by adjusting the amounts of red and blue.

The branch must go. Otherwise a reasonable pictorial record but not very exciting. This needs dramatic lighting, weather conditions or something to give he image some instant impact.
