    So I took this picture that seems to actually be halfway decent compared to what I normally do; surprisingly, the framing actually seems good (this is something I'm bad at and uncreative with). But I'm not sure what to do with it for post processing. In retrospect, I could have used a deeper fov. That aside, I'm not sure what to do with it, since I haven't really ever done post stuff on anything. I had to shrink it down a little so it would fit on imageshack (original jpg is 7.6MB, raw is 25MB).

    Hi Sorinev,

    What follows is my personal opinion and you are free to do with it what you want -- I shan't be offended!

    It seems to me your photo has two problems: the masking effect of the spray/mist on the water, and the general lack of focus on a subject (I'm not talking about the sharpness of the pic here, just what the eye is drawn to). In fact, it wasn't until I downloaded the full-size photo that I realised it contained a lot more than just sea, rocks and shoreline!

    To add interest, I concentrated on the building at the left, with its dramatic drop to the sea. I also included part of the golf course (I think that's what it is) for the same reason, and because I like playing golf! To minimise the effect of the spray I bumped up the contrast. I also bumped up the saturation and added a little sharpening in an attempt to make the photo 'pop' a bit more. All of this took me approximately 15 seconds, so you can see it's a very quick and dirty first attempt. Let me know what you think -- and as I said, you won't hurt my feelings if you don't like it!

    Les, I like that re-do. Here is another idea to keep the depth of the shot while boosting certain areas. May be a little too surreal, but fun.

    I wonder how it would like in black and white.

    Agreed. Just a quick crop for depth effect as there wasn't much photo (96K pixels) to work with, and the right side of the image didn't add much to the shot. Like I said, a little surreal... or "drawn with a box of crayons" in this case. I'm sure that a much better job could be done working with the RAW image.

    Had the opportunity to assist Zack Arias for a week in the first week of March. Didn't learn much from the lighting workshop but the street photography workshop was eye opening. Here's the first image I've managed to edit from one of the outings.

    Faisal,

    I like the first one as a 'street' photo better. However, the image seems a bit too bright considering that the long shadows from the boxes make me believe it was well before or after midday sun.
