        Looking for some feedback on this B&W photo. The overcast sky never got great color so I wanted to try this as a B&W. I used a long shutter speed to get some motion in the clouds. F11, 20sec, 14mm, 100 ISO, processed in LR

          Hi Levi, the landscape is grand and the sky is dramatic. I think the image needs a bit more contrast. Also the branch on the bottom right is distracting. You could also brush the darker areas of the rocks on the right to brighten them a bit 🙂

              Hi Levi, I think it works better if you change the aspect ratio to a more cinematic one.
              I usually like darker images, but in this case, I think a bit brighter helps the image. Something likes this:
              No not like this. I see now that you do not want others to edit your images, so I deleted what I wanted to show.

                  Hi Levi, nice dramatic scene. As Erik has already said, a more cinematic aspect ratio would improve it, ie: if you crop from the bottom to remove the branch ?

                    The composition is great and the sky looks really majestic. I just think that you need a bit more contrast, that’s all. You can also try to increase the clarity a little bit in Lightroom.

                      Great scene, dramatic sky. Composition ok. As other have said: more cinematic aspect ratio would be better.
