I posted this on the share forum, but thought I could use some critical evaluations of how to make this image better. Any and all comments appreciated. The colors are real, taken at Niagara Falls on the Canadian Side.

Thanks,

If you wanted to ask how to make that image better then I say do not do anything. If you asked how to take the same image better again in same location the I say shoot a lot and experiment - the scene can be really seen on the spot and it's quite impossible to say anything without being there (or seeing more of it).

Beautiful photo!

Thanks Pekka for your input. I was thinking more along the lines of cropping the picture. I guess the asking for critique is unfair. I've got a ton of shots I took at the location so I can make comparisons. As for you guys, you only have this one shot to go by.

In any case, let me rephrase my question(s). I want critical evaluation of the following:

1. Sharpness - Is the foreground sharp enough?
2. Grain/Noise - Is too much visible, should I remove more, but lose detail? How should I go about doing this without losing detail/sharpness in the tree branches?
3. Cropping - Is the cropping of the tree branch okay, or should I crop more?

Thanks,

Pradeep

If I may,

1) Sharpness seems to be fine.
2) Grain seems to be fine.

1&2) These could both be best evaluated if you were to post a 100% crop of an area in the forground which has noise in it. It is hard to theorize on either of these with a minified image.

3) PERSONALLY, I would like to see a wider crop. I like the tree and would like to see the other edge of the trunk, not just the edge showing. Also, in this shot, it looks like we see the top of the falls, but just not quite. I would also like to see the upper surface of the falls, to give a more complete context for where it was shot.

THAT BEING SAID - this is still a stunning shot. Well done.
