The verticals do hit you a bit here. A decent image in general. I, like Willie, would up the contrast a bit to give a bit mre bite, then possibly burn in the bright end of the 'tunnel' if it will take it.
It just looks artificial and posed to me Ian. Not your usualmore lively stuff. Her eyes are shut too. I prefer V1 as the mono suites, but the overall effect is too static.
The quality is good, but I just find myself loking at the tinybit of silhouette castle. Doutless a marmite image that soe willenthuse over. I need a subject on which the eye can rest. The stream i not really terribly attractive and leads to nothing in particular.
I fear the general effect is heavy and under exposd. Not terribly indicative of a good morning.
Your problem is flare. This is none image foring light scatter causing the milky effect. This can siply be bright lightgetting into the lns but it is important that the lens front eleent is clean. Dirt and grease caause flare.
We really need the EXIF data to help. Exposure and so on.
Very well done.Othersshuldlook and learn. Very sharp wher it needs to be.
I shoot a lot of macro. Macro is 1:1 or greater. Some stretch that to 1:2..
Not a bad effort, but if it is a record, you need the base in. If it iis for compositional effect, a shot looking up from nearerthe base to give a more dramatic view are sme strong directional lighting to give form and impact.
She does look rather aprehensive which is a potential story in itself. The eyes ar very dark indeed. OK, she has dark eyes but you could try a bit of very careful dodging to try and regain some detail. iwould have stayed with color. Mono is for more gritty demanding street shot. This should be softer and colourful.
For me'not in the same league as your others. The tonal range is rather flat and the steps a distraction. It does need some contrast and depth to give impact and to attract a viewers attention. All the tones ar mid range and thus fail to give that strength.
