|Greetings from the Critique Club!
This is a wonderful shot. I like the quiet look on his face. Me? I would have been panic city, but that's only because I can't swim, LOL!
The first thing that I notice about this shot is that it seems just a bit tilted to the left. Almost as if all the water is going to spill out that side and the poor man will fall out as well. It's a bit disconcernting (sp?). Maybe just the slightest tilt back to the right? The use of grain on this one is well done, not too much, not too little, just right!
The lack of contrast in this also makes it just rather sit there on the screen despite the motion of the water. It almost looks like a cross between a sepia tone and a black and white, like it can't quite decide and that is also a bit bothersome to me personally. I like one or other, I like both, but not at the same time, LOL :)
I hope my comments help!
Good Luck in future challenges!
if you redo this I would love to see the results!
