Nice DOF and contrast between tones. I think that the image could benefit from cropping so the 2nd tree clump in front of the island is on the 1/3 line. The b&w tones are very good.   Posted: 10/05/2020 09:09:57

Sanford - This is very good compositionally. I also think the BW tones are good.   Posted: 10/05/2020 12:13:54

This is a great image Sanford, one to be proud of. Strong subject matter and the mood of b&w is brilliant. So many times I find myself seeing "images within images". I of my favorite image formats is a panoramic, sometimes a 2x1, sometimes a 3x1 (checkout an aussie landscaper by the name of Ken Duncan). I often ask "If something is taken out of an image, does that removal detract from the image or make it weaker? I hope you don't mind my turning your image into a 2x1 pano. I love the ripples in the foreground water that give an excellent base to the image, but, if some are taken out, is the image weaker? Same for the sky and right hand side? Is the viewer now forced to focus more on the other remaining elements in the image. Yes, maybe some more could come off the right side, but then the 2x1 pano effect is not so strong. I tried a 3x1 (16x7 in old film language) but that just lost too much of the water for me. I'm not meaning any of this as a criticism or compulsory action Sanford, just merely providing a further possible option.   Posted: 10/06/2020 22:05:45

Very nice image Sanford. The monochrome was a great choice and creates even more mood than the original, which already had a good amount of moodiness. The only thing I think I would change would be to drop or raise that center line so it wasn't dividing the image. Just a subjective suggestion. All in all a wonderful image.   Posted: 10/08/2020 17:13:32

Beautiful image Sanford. The black and white adds a sense of mystery to the picture. The reflections from the trees also add to the composition.   Posted: 10/13/2020 21:08:43
