What happened to the sky top right?

Perhaps some creative cropping would help.

It's not a bad shot. A little flat. I think I wouldn't have had the people and the wooden deck in the shot. I like the rocky edge in the foreground.

The sky is really blown out. Bracketed images would have let you expose the cave and the sky properly. Like JeannieBug said...I also would have left the people and the decking out of the shot.

Default My crop

Here is the part of the image that excites me the most:
Name:  cavecrop.JPG

I like the water colors and rocks.
Higher in the frame, as others have pointed out, there is some "washing out" and "distraction" (people). Maybe the focus is also better in this area of the image.

G'day Grounded

Cc mate
This is a classic case of "photos inside a photo" [well done]

Here's my take on it and its possibilities


Hope you find it helpful
Regards, Phil

Quite a nice shot- shame the weather didn't help you with a nice blue sky..!
I'm not sure if the people work or not- so I took a look..!

G'day Simon

The cave opening still sits very centrally in the image & the camera position is still virtually unchanged... What's the chances of getting down onto the sand and completely altering the visual perspective??

Regards, Phil
