    Sea coast C&C always welcome

    A shot of the Gulf islands off the south coast of British Columbia between the mainland and Vancouver Island

    I am still working on doing black and white interpretations so I welcome any opinions on composition and processing.

    Sea coast  C&C always welcome

    Beautiful image. I adore the composition, detail and exposure. I like this in B&W but have little knowledge of B&W, so no advice to share.

    Trevor, did you intend to include the house near the right-hand edge of the composition, as it seems a bit distracting?

    Philip; this was the first judgement I had to make in processing this. I elected to leave it in but I could easily be convinced it should go. I choose to leave it because it adds a little jolt of human presence to an otherwise largely wild scene. However I appreciate it is a bit incongruous and the white spot does grab the viewer's eye

    Trevor, a very interesting and lovely image. I added a bit of contrast and structure (using NIK Viveza) which increased the separation of the three spits of land. I agree that the house, although showing scale distracts me somewhat from the entire image. It is a bit too close to the edge of the frame to be an integral part of the image.

    I saved my PP try and will post it if you would like to see my interpretation...

    Hi, Trevor. I like the house, too, but its position makes it look more an accident than an intentional compositional element. It's an easy PS edit to move it to the left a bit, and it would still remain true to the scene if you have some sensitivity in that regard.

    Seems I need to do a little urban renewal.

    I like the image....the three strata of land/hills make their tonal distinction; regarding the house, i too feel it is too much towards the edge; so cloning it out or taking it more to right in the image to give it a prominent role can help; my two paise
