I’m practicing my new short trip workflow involving camera, raw capture, special card reader, iPad, Apple Pencil, and LightroomCC plus a host of free iPad apps. I fiddled with it once before but didn’t try to post it till I got home. This is my first try at taking it to completion.

And of course the main thing is the picture! Got a few different angles somoffer suggestions please.

The coast is full of reminders of Katrina. And will ever be.

Minnie, The line of pier supports on the right is so strong it draws my eye right out of the photo. I try to come back to the rest, but I am drawn down to the lower right immediately and up and out. No suggestions other than my immediate reaction. The tones are glorious, of course. Matt

Thanks Matt. I knew it was an odd array of broken pier pieces, and all the others have other versions of the odd array. This one is actually flipped to lead right instead of left, so its “native” appearance is in the other direction (but still out of the frame). I may post another to see what ya’ll think!

I like it! I can't disagree with Matt's query about the pier leading out of frame, but it's also so dark as not to be that much of a problem because my eye is drawn to that spectacular sky. But then I wonder why what appears to be the tip of the most interesting cloud is cropped through. Now, of course, I have no idea what is outside the frame to the left (I know it's flipped but...) or what you may have been forced to crop out, but if I'd made it I'd want to either pull back or shift left enough to get the tip of that cloud. We have discussed the KitSink thing so much, so I know you want to exclude "too much," but in this case (assuming there was nothing needing to be excluded on the left) I'd want the camera panned left enough to include the tip, and to exclude some more of the pier. :)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

Thanks Chuck, those are good ideas. I do have some with the tip of that cloud in it, though other parts seemed less than ideal for light and color. I will try editing one of those and see what I can make of it with the “real” tools on my desktop. The whole scene had some shooting constraints, including an unbroachable concrete barrier, but I did take shots pivoting in all directions from that point. The sky was a marvel.
