A tighter crop in the lower third would enhance the shot to draw the eye to the main subject.

Hi again. Before we get into commenting, there's something very odd in the Exif - the shutter speed, aperture, ISO and focal length don't correspond with what's possible on a D300 with 18-200 mm F3.5 - 5.6 lens! Can you clarify that please?

This shot has been taken with an iPhone 6 I believe. Can you confirm?

It would also be very helpful for us, so that we can help you appropriately, what you want feedbackon, if you could let us know which method of monochrome conversion you used together with uploading the original colour image as a modification (if you still have it).

The technical side matters: but even without that information, I suggest cropping at the top, to remove bright sky, and on the right to remove the bright and distracting windows - as well as at the bottom to remove the dead space.

My impression is that the mono conversion has got rid of midtones, giving a slightly soot-and-whitewash look to the picture, so the conversion method is highly relevant.

We should initially comment on what has been presented, I think, as that is what the photographer obviously intended, although the original is always going to help if things seem to have gone wrong.

Here, this looks like an HDR image that has been over done. The tonal range is heavily compressed giving an image consisting of a lot of mid tones and exhibiting little contrast. My guess is that you have used a preset process on the phone resulting in this image.

It needs more contrast, a decent black and white in order to have a stronger impact.

Apologies to all and a total mix-up. I took two images of this shed. One with my D300 and yes, one with my iPhone. This is the iPhone image. When you've reached 70 things start to fall apart. Looks like it has started for me.

Or maybe not... I've always looked for systems that mean I don't have to think too much, to avoid that kind of problem, and too much work! And I've always had a memory like a cheap sieve that has been treated badly.

If you 'save as' rather than 'save for web' the site should be able to pick up all the EXIF automatically...
