[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This shot is about contrasts and textures.

La Caleta is a little beach by La Romana, there are a few fishermen and small stalls where you can eat the fresh catches very cheap.

In this one i tried to over-emphasize the brightness of the fish scales in the midday of the Caribbean. As you can see there is a little PP work on contrast and brightness.

About the composition, again a vertical shot (Old Trunk) leaving a shadowed diagonal zone (the floor) in the upper part where we can see better the pita fiber.

Suggestions and critiques are welcome as i am here to learn day by day.

Hello Galder!
It is always good to try new things and experience different styles of photography. It really feels good to have fresh fish roasted at a beach.
Indeed a nice POV and good sharpness of the subject.

dear Galder,
wow, very tasteful picture for gourmet,
eating both as raw or baked, we can enjoy those so much.
anyway, your enhanced contrast is effective to show me its freshness and impressive sun light,
but this composition is, maybe a little half-finished...because tied fish and left laid fish look scattered about or separately on this diagonal deck, of course this is simply my feeling.
whole picture is very nice, thank you,

Hola amigo
Buena composicion y colorido de los peces rosados y plateados recien pescados ,buen detalle y encuadre
buen trabajo
un saludo
Feliz aņo nuevo

PD- con el Ps duplico la capa , la pongo en multiplicar ajusto la opacidad dandole la fuerza que me gusta , a veces recorto la imagen en otra capa para que resalte solo una figura , y las luces con la herramienta subexponer o sobrexponer , tambien otras veces cuando la luz es fuerte poner una capa de un color gris o el que predomine en la imagen tambien multiplicar y con un porcentaje de opacidad entre el 10 - 30 porciento y mata el exceso de luz
