Photo critique Here is where you can display your images and seek the comment, advice and, maybe, constructive critique of your work. Only post your images here if you are happy for frank feedback. If in doubt, use the beginners board instead. Only post your comments here if you feel you can make a constructive and polite contribution in response to what is, for some, a leap of faith in exposing their work to your critical comment.

Re: Does this work?

I like the overall effect. But if I'm honest. It is a little too dark for me.

I do realise however that this may be how you want it to look, as it has given the image a very moody and stormy look.

I agree with Garry. I'd add contrast and brightness to the whole picture and then, graduated filter style, darken the top half.

I really like the scene and your composition. It might very well be a fine candidate for a black & white conversion as the darkened second shot, for example, would still retain the "mood" you would like to convey.
