    Lost Fishing Float

    Is there anyway to make the subject more pronounced? Thanks for any input.

    What? You don't get the "tongue-in-cheek" part of Dave's comment, so you get upset and leave?

    Wow.

    If it were my shot and I desired to make the float more pronounced, I would start by cropping
    the image to contain the float and immediate surroundings. IMO there's a whole lot of un-needed
    tree and sky in the pic, so removing most of it would allow the float to take center stage.

    Hi John,
    Don't rush off...read Dave's comment again.Maybe because I fish I got it right away.
    I'm with Mike,a tighter crop will work better.
    Exposure and details are very good.

    Hi John,

    I would say that the primary problem is that the float is too small in the image.

    I looked at the EXIF data but, didn't find the focal length that you used for this shot. I would suggest that you use the longest focal length that you have at your disposal in order to make the float bigger in the image and avoid the surroundings as much as possible.

    Since this image has already been shot, I suggest that you crop it as much as possible to eliminate the distraction of the sky and tree branches. You will, however end up with an image considerably smaller than your original.

    Finally, I would darken the sky which will make the float colors more pronounced.
