Two things I pick up from the critiques
1. Watch for competing subjects (bridge vs rock)
2. Watch tonal range
I raise the question..
What circumstances drives you to consider B&W conversion?
Its not about competing subjects, the boulders in the foreground are just much to large. Either another angle from a higher perspective, further back, or whatever, to allow the boulders to appear to be smaller, or just walk away from the shot.
With all that said, you had a good eye on a potential landscape shot, if only for those enormous boulders.
Sorry clean gene, but I totally disagree with you, regarding the boulders, or as you call them, rocks, but that's all right, as you probably disagree with me. That's why photography is so personally subjective.
Ever see a TV show where police arrive at a crime scene, and interview 5 eyewitnesses, all with a different perspective. Humanly natural !
