    Re: black poles

    I think you've created a good mood and atmosphere with this. It feels that there's a bit of mystery and intrigue attached to it.

    I'm not sure if you meant it or not, but the softness (it could be sharpened up quite a bit) actually adds to that mood and atmosphere. I think it would be a very different image if the we could see the grain and texture on the timbers and the rocks were pin-sharp. But the softness, along with vignette, age it.

    I don't know what software your using and whether the vignette tool has a 'transition' slider, allowing you to vary the blend from the vignette into the non-vignetted areas. If so, I'd maybe have had a look at increasing that so that there wasn't such a stark edge on the vignette.

    But a good first B & W. Well done.
