I am curious on your thoughts about this image. Kinda a rough draft. C and C welcome. Thanks







My good friend Dustin suggested a a darker foreground thought I'd post them closer for comparison. Thoughts on either version are appreciated, Thanks.

I like this one. Maybe darken the water just a tad - or change the hue of it. Would bring out the sky a bit more - which is killer

I tried to come up with a suggestion but couldn't, sorry . I think the tones are well balanced across the board. The only thing that could bring the stars out more would be to shift the composition skyward by maybe 10%, but it's hard to tell if that would improve the image.

Pulled the comp skyward, wasn't feeling it. Lost the twilight feel I was going for. Thanks for the suggestion appreciate it

I like the comp too but maybe tone back off the blue a bit from the water level on down?

The difference is very subtle but I also like the second image.
I really like the monochromatic look and what you did with water motion and night sky.

This is a great composition. Well balanced. The last version is the best.

It's a great shot, I love it.

Honestly though, I'd trust your own instincts and your own style before I'd try to please everyone else. Your stuff is phenomenal, stick to what you like.

Awesome shot with a very original feeling! Could you maybe go into some detail on the steps involved with capturing this? Thanks a lot.

Beautiful! Where were these taken? I'm headed to Oregon in ten days and would love to try something like this...

Great shot! I wouldn't do much. They look great as is!

Even though they are not tilted they feel very, very slightly tilted to the right to me, so if it was mine I'd consider countering that relatively. Maybe the slightest dodge on the mid ground rock and a hair bit breathing room on the horizon line where the sea stack almost touches the edge of the frame. I'd allocate about the same amount of distance as you did on the left. Minor things.
