    I couldn't use a tripod for this shot so it's not as crisp as I would like. Any CC appreciated. Barnet_Beach_BW_small.

    Nice composition. Could do with some lightening IMHO. Since you have 'Image ecditing OK', I had a tweak. What do you think?

    I prefer the darker, moodier feel of the original rather than the starker presentation of the edited version which I think goes too far. I think Paul is right about the image being able to benefit from some lightening, but I think it needs only a little, concentrated more in the darker tones, with the highlights touched as little as possible to retain the mood.

    I did a quick curves adjustment to the darker tones only in LR to get the following result:

    I also think that it would be better with just a bit of lightening. I think that you did very well on this pic, I have taken quite a number of pics of this same pier and none came out as good as yours.

    Cheers:

    Perhaps a bit of lightening, but not too much. Interesting shot. :cool:

    Perhaps graduating the lightening from the periphery to the central portion. Great pic.
