After a 2 hour drive, following a 2-hour hike one way in the chilly winter weather of Nova Scotia, we finally made it to the tip of Cape Split.

I tried taking this photo on a DSLR I was borrowing from a friend.
Unfortunately, it wasn't wide enough to capture this image, so I had to take it on my phone (LG G5)

What do you think?

It looks like a pretty scenic location. I would suggest you crop out your legs / feet and increase the contrast of the image.
Cheers, Murray

Well, the point was to keep them I the shot for that caption.

I was also going for that less contrast look.
But it may be too much.

I tried keeping it fairly natural. But that colors that came out looked super ugly so it took a long tune to touch up

I agree with Murray....the feet sticking into the bottom of any picture is right in there with shooting on railroad tracks and selective color...pretty cliched and done to death. Sorry.

Increase in contrast and bump up the color a little I think would make it a better picture.

I like the feet in the scene. Cliché or not. And it's what he wanted to shoot...so kudos to him for making the effort to shoot it the way he wanted to. I think it turned out well.

I think it may be a bit cool.....but I tend to prefer warmer photos in general.

Cool spot tho.

I typically don't do such shots, but I had a caption I wanted to use, as it says in the first post, hence why I did the feet shot.

I did the grading on my phone using snapspeed as I didnt have lightroom or anything at the time... I technically still dont (using trial now to see how it goes)

So, the grading was very difficult. The colour out of the camera was very bad and ugly. Not because of the settings/camera, but the location and weather.
The rocks were a very very weird colour, and adding contrast made it even worse.
But, I agree. Now that I have the trial version of lightroom, I see where I could have fixed things whereas I couldnt before.
