I shot this last week at London Bridge near Portsea. I really like the foreground rock and the sweep of the sandstone.

Comments welcome.

I think the greys look a bit dull; you miss what makes the image go POP. I'm also wondering if it wouldn't work better with a different crop. Try losing the right 25% and bottom 15% or so, taking advantage of the path made by the light-toned sand.

I'd advise against using the"clarity" slider with this one, there is already a slight hint of haloing around the large rock in the background.

Personally, I'd like to see this one in colour, or perhaps a discreet sepia.

Overall I like it, but as was stated above, the grays are a bit flat and I'd also go with chopping off maybe a quarter of the bottom.
