Re: C&C: Iceland Waterfall in B&W (w/ E-M1)

A few more thoughts:

1. The composition is a bit too centred, the fall is almost in the middle, both vertically and horizontally;

2. This leads to the water exiting the photo on the side on the left, which is odd. This leaves the bottom right hand side empty of interest, with just a few small boulders/rocks.

3. The original is too bland, with many light areas competing for visual interest, really there is no anchor point.

4. the second interpretation is somewhat better, as the falls brightness has less competition from other elements. But the somewhat poor composition remains. Not knowing the area, I can not offer other alternatives.

5. In the end, this photo appears to me as a normal wide angle composition, showing too much, and in the end not really grabbing the attention for long. If this were exhibited in a print somewhere, I would pass it by, look at it for a few seconds, and just move on.
