Talking Well, this is a new one for me!

Any chance for this guy, i figured i'd give it a shot for the reflection in the water, buuuut... Well, either they just pressed a random button to get away from it's ugliness, or...
hmmm...


Thoughts, comments? Criticism...?

I think they mean to click "Common/power cloudy." I mean that's a nice picture and RP screeners seem to be suckers for reflections, but if they were to be consistent, yeah it's cloudy.

It needs a much better B&W conversion. That looks grey to me all over. And a lot of sky.

Hi Danylo,

If you look in the middle of the water, below the spaces between the 1st and 2nd and the 2nd and 3rd coaches, there do appear to be a couple of dust specks. I can't tell what they are, but they are definitely on the image.

I see quite a bit of banding in the sky as well.

Clouds.

And i don't see the specs you weer talking about, KevinM. There are however some ducks and their wake on the baggage car reflection...
I'll see what i can do about the B&W conversion, but if they don't like it, they don't like it...


Thanks guys-

I'd suggest a fair bit of the top and the right and a stronger B+W conversion (too many mid-tones). However thats only a suggestion and it could possibly do with more texture in the sky and (therefore reflected) in the foreground.

I'm going to hate myself for saying this but maybe B+W HDR? I feel dirty for even suggesting it....

All just my humble opinion!

Maybe flotsam in the water, something there for sure.

No, the banding is lines formed between brightness gradients in the sky. Usually a sign of an overdone shadow / highlight / contrast adjustment, or a bad resizing pass.

I think redoing the black white conversion better will fix it though.

Not a good shot at all. The sky and foreground are featureless. It's not well composed. The subject is straight down the middle of the frame and the power almost too close to the left side of the frame.

I know that comes across as a harsh review, but you asked. I suggest you give up on this one and try again with another shot.

I'm one step ahead of you :P
