|Greeting from the Critique Club:
This is a good photo that could have said so much more. The sepia effect works, but on what? I want to see what that fisherman has caught, if anything.
The grain works well in the lower section of the picture, but the sky seems more in need of colour. I don't know what your processing steps were, but obviouxly you converted from colour to B&W or sepia. I think the main problem is that the shot falls between to two genres, it is neither landscape nor portrait. As a landscape it would work better as a straight colour shot with saturation, those cliffs jutting out into the sea are great. The man on the spit shows as just a pixelated form. Could a close crop of either the one fisherman or perhaps almost a panoramic with both fishermen in have worked better?
I like grain in a sepia/B&W shot, but it didn't quite work this time, the subject just aren't large enough. I don't want to sound too harsh, but it doesn't grab me. I think it scored about right for the challenge, but has the potential to have scored better. Hope this has been helpful and constructive.
