I feel this image has potential I'm not sure why, currently there's a little to much stuff in it though.

I think you might have answered your own question right there.

Next step is to analyze and separate which elements that draw you to this shot, understand why and then go reshoot the same scene or shoot anything that fulfills that criteria.



If it's in focus, it's pornography, if it's out of focus, it's art.

I like Mu Eugene's suggestion. If you need another perspective (clue?) - for me the charm in the image comes from the boards curving away, the light falling on them, and the colours and contrasts in the grass to the right thereof. That's the only place in the image where my eye wants to look.

Cheers,
Tony

I think a higher aperture - your camera tilted 90 degress and shooting along the boardwalk getting a bit of sky in.

My opinion, but there is no focal point on your current shot. When you compose - try to work out what you want to focus on, then find a few shooting techniques that can help you achieve this.

Ie, selective colour, rules of thirds, shallow DOF etc...

good luck, there is definitely potential there.

I agree with Mu Eugenes comments, but I'd like to take that a bit further...or perhaps simply the thought just a bit.

Something I've said a great many times over the years is to "think about what you're shooting...and -why-". Ask yourself "What exactly is this picture about?"...in this case, is this shot about the boardwalk there? Is it about the boats? Is it about the lamp post? Is it about that upside-down pontoon boat? The weeds to the right of the dock? Once you've decided -what- the shot is actually about then isolate your subject and eliminate anything that doesn't contribute in a positive way...basic rule of composition. In other words, decide -what- you want the image to be about before you take said image instead of trying to figure out what to do with it afterward. In the words of the late, great Ansel Adams, "There's nothing worse than a sharp image of a fuzzy concept".

Just my $.02,
Jim
