Howling Dog w/revision



Critique Style Requested: Standard

The photographer is looking for generalized feedback about the aesthetic and technical qualities of their image.


This is the Howling Dog sea stack rock in Bandon, Oregon, taken during me trip with @John_Williams last December.

Technical Details

D850, 70-200 @ 70mm, f/22, 20 sec., ISO 64, tripod

Impressive photo. Technically excellent. I do think the composition would benefit from cropping top and bottom. The rock which is tack sharp needs to be more prominent.

Thank you @Kent_Bossange for your comments and suggestion! I totally agree, and added a revision at the top.

Love this Steve! I’m glad you are revisiting images from that trip; I need to do the same.

I like the idea of a crop, but hate to lose the depth that the background rock on the left adds. Maybe just the top and bottom @Kent_Bossange suggested? That would change the format of course, but still look great IMHO.
