    A Jetty?

    Hi!
    I would like some c&c on this shot I took at a nearby beach. As a newbie I would appreciate all comments and advice. Thank you in anticipation.

    Hi Colin,

    I like the tonal range, but I think you should take a different station point. Lower, to render the wooden pilars on the sky (without sea) or up, without sky. Also, a bit close to them, to get the small(stones) or pieces of wood from the left a bit closer to you. There is a line in the sand, aprox 2 meters in fron of you, maybe from there?
    If is nearby you, maybe you can give a try, if you want.

    I agree that you should try for other variations...get down low and photograph high...especially during the sunset or just focus on one of them and blur out a few others...hrm. Or set the tripod up high and shoot down towards with the posts taking the majority of the background, while leaving the white sand in foreground (probably require a wide angle lens though)

    Otherwise, it's exposed correctly...try a b/w on this..good luck!! Hope you share more!

    I think, Colin, I would crop a bit off the bottom and turn it into a panoramic shot.

    Shooting from a lower angle would simply give you more sky, unless you change the width/height ratio.

    If it was a really interesting sky that lower angle might work but I'm not keen on just adding more 'plain blue'. And you really need the full width.

    A bottom crop will leave the horizon about the middle of the frame height but I think it will still work OK.
