interesting image, birds on top of trees and stumps - kind of prehistoric yet absorbing of attention. Some questions, high white was at 248 but using dot gain profile, was this in camera monochrome? And why not crop the right side with those trees deep in the background.

Quite an enjoyable image

Shot in RAW, converted in LR/Silver Efex Pro.
The crop question is a good one. Rather than place the sun way over on the right, I thought a rule of thirds positioning would feel more balanced. Also I liked the notion of the distant marshes and trees continuing far out of the frame. As they do.
Also, placed this first on Critique where I got some suggestions about cropping from the top or bottom and this image is about a 20% crop off the bottom. No one suggested a crop from the sides!

Thanks for your feedback and thoughts Joe.

Scott,

I think the suggested cropping will reduce the image into two halves, whereas the symmetry of thirds in the existing image results in better balance. And, adds perspective.

Well done Scott.
I think the trees far right add a sense of depth. If you look long enough, it almost looks 3 dimensional. You move left to right and more into the frame as you go.

Perfect as is, Scott.
I remember the basic scene from weeks earlier; I liked it then and I still do. And whatever the differences, you're working with a different kind of geography than I see in the Pacific Northwest- and you're doing it quite well.

Thanks Greg.
I was concerned that the darker tones would read too murky.

I think "murky" is exactly what I feel when I look at this image. So I'd say it works.
