Kobus I love the mood of this image!!! Also, how the rocks lead your eyes towards the ship. The water looks so nice and milky, which adds so much to the overall mood. I think this would really do well on canvas.

What a fantastic image, Kobus. The rocks and their angle, milky water, slanted clouds all lead to the wreck. Great mood and contrast. I agree: a large print of this on canvas can adorn any wall. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Kobus,

the light pointing to the wreck is very powerful and you handled the contrast perfectly. My printing suggestion will be Harman Gloss FB Al - one of the papers with really dark blacks to hold the contrast.

The closer view to the wreck in this image is very powerful. Good leading lines in the rocks and the clouds. I really like the B&W treatment - this is the type of seen that B&W is made for. Well done.

Hi Kobus,
Agree with alll of the above......very poserful leading lines and very nicely done converting it and blending the exposures. I have looked at lightening a few areas selectively (L FG rocks and middle to left sky)......and while it does work this was probably lost in the jpeg compression. I'm sure this looks great in a print. Extremely well composed and done!

Kobus, I really love this, very dark mood and the shape of the rocks take my eye right into the wreck. Excellent done!

Beautiful. Great eerie feel.

I think it needs a bit of CW rotation.
