Punting the Cam

By Jon_Briggs
Taken on a glorious day after being dragged around the shops of Cambridge with my wife.

Am pleased that I managed to capture the two chaps with the poles at near enough the same angle.

Was tempted to have a go myself but saw someone fall in, so left it to the experts.

This is a super composition but IMO your processing hasn't done it justice. It needs a bit more contrast by way of an "S" curve adjustment and a bit more USM. Nevertheless gets a vote for the composition.

As Albert says, this is a good composition, with the bridge on the diagonal the the two poles intersecting it. As a candid, it keeps the attention of the viewer, wondering if the poles will hit the bridge, especially with the rt-hand punter looking in the wrong direction. I'd have liked a little more water at the bottom, as a balance to the sky, but it's very good as it is. My only niggle is that I think I'd have preferred it in colour, especially considering it was a nice day.

Will take you tips on board and look at adding a modified image later.

Also, I'm no expert in Photoshop and was only capable of making this into a B&W image. I don't have a clue what a "s" curve is or what a USM is.
