Hello,

Nice photo! I like the blurred water from the long exposure.

Did you want a dreary, monotonous, winter look? If so, then it's very good as is. The flat tones, and having the horizon line right in the center help with that theme.

I'd like to see it with more contrast - more drama -- and with the horizon higher. That's just my opinion.

Is it OK to download your photo and make adjustments to show you?

Yes, I would like to show people who usually see the same scenery in sumer how it looks in winter.

I too think more contrast would do fine but am not sure about it, the camera I used is an old Fuji S5 and it is not known to be a landscape camera, the strong AA filter flattens a bit of everything, I'm not sure if to leave it all as it is or if to maybe just lighten a bit the rock on the right where there is that dark area.

By the way, thank you for your suggestion, feel free to download and adjust but please just for personal use.

Your composition looks good but I am not sure this is a subject that is good for Black and white. Not enough contrast. Can you post a colour version?

I took many landscapes with a Fuji S2 pro. Perectly capable camera with great tonality

eg



Waterfall, Australia.
