About the Image(s)

This image was taken near Cocodrie, Louisiana. Most all the people in this area make a living fishing. I really like this image because of
the contrast, texture and the lines of the building and the lines in the boat. I removed the telephone lines and bought out the shadows.

Hi Linda. I think you captured a lovely scene that epitomizes that area of Louisiana. There are so many interesting elements and details in your image and you did a nice job of in-camera composition. The frame is divided nicely into thirds - the building, the boat and the water/reflection with the main parts of the composition shifted toward the left of the frame. You've done an excellent job with the monochrome conversion - really nice tonality and contrast. Had you not included your original image, my comments would have stopped there. But I must say, in this case I really prefer the color image. It would be fun to see what you might come up with as far as a color edit for side-by-side comparison. In any case, nicely done!   Posted: 06/08/2021 00:03:03

Hi Linda,
Great shot. The reflection in the water adds impact to the image. Well exposed and sharp. Great texture and lines throughout. I see clouds in the sky. Perhaps a little darker sky to show the clouds would add a little more to the image. It's fine as it is, but I just prefer more contrast in the sky.   Posted: 06/09/2021 09:29:03

Linda - I agree on the composition and choice of subject - and I love that fact that the reflection is so clear (either the water is very still or your exposure was really quick?)
To my taste, the image is a little dark - making the scene more somber than I find in the color version. The attached may be a little extreme for your taste but this is where I would have gone.   Posted: 06/09/2021 21:06:03

Hi Linda,
I agree with everyone such a great image. The reflection is so clear. The tone and contrast is spot on. I do agree with Gerard that it is a little dark for my liking. I find the poles on the right are distracting and taking my attention away from the boat. I would crop the right out. You did an excellent job in removing the power lines ... well done.   Posted: 06/10/2021 21:26:45

Nice composition, the boat and its' reflections are great, I also like the color photo better because I can see the boat better. I lose the boat to the back ground in the b&w version, perhaps more contrast on the boat and its shadow so they standout out more from the house and its shadows.   Posted: 06/11/2021 16:00:40
