Your Photo: Our Critique

Melissa Hartling submitted this image taken with a Nikon Coolpix S9, at f/5.7, ISO 64. Taken with the sun low and behind the posts has caused the posts to be underexposed and detail is lost. The sky itself is a little blown out in spots. As a black-and-white photo, it this lacks a good tonal range. Compositionally this image has a nice feel; the posts create a nice pattern and lead the viewer into the frame with a crop that takes advantage of the vertical subject.

The foam adds texture and interesting patterns to the water.
