Very simple but needs more contrast and sky on a third!

Dear Trev
Thanks for your feedback.
I actually liked the idea of having exactly the same amount of space for the sky and the field/beach with the sea in the middle, rather than following the rule of thirds. The picture is just a conversion from raw to jpg without any retouching as I liked the overall subdued tone. I'll try a bit of contrast and what comes out..

Going by the tags, I'm guessing this image does all those things for you.

Assuming that is so, Your obviously happy with the outcome.

However it does not seem to have mass appeal, Could be the thirds thing, Could be the lack of contrast, Could be the lack of life in the colours, Could even be the fact that its in portrait mode, Or maybe there is no lead in, No foreground interest.....!!!

Who knows....Sad

But if you like it, Thats all that matters......Smile

you might be right.. I hoped for some more positive feedback but it does not work all the time. Yep I will have to work on the contrast as it seems that leaving it as it was in raw is a mistake
