An interesting shot. Like the idea. There isn't much I can think to say in all honesty. Possibly a crop in from the left to centralise the image more also because the wooden rail is somewhat longer on that side. The only other thing (maybe) is doing the shot from eye level to put more emphasis on the individual. You will still have the jetty behind, but I feel at the moment there is no one significant aspect of the image... It all seems to be on equal footing. I'd like to see the person have a bit more dominance in the shot!!

None the less a great capture x x

This is a nice shot and I like the viewpoint you've chosen, which has kept all the elements separated. I like the use of depth of field, too. You don't say whether it was a posed photo or something you took on the spur of the moment. If it was posed, I think it would have been better to get everything perfectly symmetrical, with Art'em sitting right in the middle and the camera pointed straight down the jetty. Because you're not quite looking down the centre of the jetty, the shot has a slightly skewed perspective which is a little uncomfortable.

As presented, the photo is about two-thirds of a stop under-exposed. There's also very little detail in the shadows and the histogram is rather spiky at the bottom, which suggests to me that the original was even more under-exposed but that you've done some correction of that in software. I'm afraid I'm a product of the digital age so I can't offer any advice on exposure for film cameras. Some flash might have helped to fill in the very deep shadows that have come from the strong side-lighting.

Overall, though, I like it. Smile
