this is a great photo,if you can just bring down the noise some what i think it would be excellent. wonderful experiment i will have to try some thing like this my self.keep up the good work.
It is a great image, like direwolf said, it has quite a bit of noise but also the poles stiking out of the water distract me and my eyes are drawn to them, maybe getting rid of them would be a good idea. Othe rthen that Is a great image.
wow this is so much better.i like the poles for some reason.i would leave them.this is an outstanding photo.well done .
Amazing photo, don't really mind the noise maybe getting rid of the noise from the sky and water would really help. Have you tried using LR for editing B/W with the color adjustments or Silver Efex Pro 2.
Looks good! Maybe you could try to increase the contrast a little (it's a bit too grey, lots of 'midtones') ... to see what happens
Thanks Anatoliy - I usually start with lightroom and have a select few of my images to really play with in photoshop - since it give you more control on what tweaks go where on the image. Have not try Silver Efex Pro 2 but I am thinking of trying out Topaz to see if the BW come out any better than what I already have. Lea - I'll try playing with the contrast a bit and see if it helps - thanks.
You can try Silver Efex Pro 2 as a 15 day trial on their website.
