Your Photo: Our Critique

Martin Fritz submitted this image taken with a Kodak HD 400 speed film.  Martin let the camera “do the work” and it has tried to expose for the bright sky causing the foreground to be underexposed.  The dark foreground has nice lines and silhouettes so it works but the sky and its reflection in the water is overexposed.  I could sit here and make all sorts of assumptions of what the original scene looked like but if the sky was overcast then this may be what Martin saw and liked about the scene.
