I can understand why. There are things I really like about it, and things I'd wish you had done differently. The most noticeable, the blown highlights. The overall image has a number of very capable qualities, such as tonal and surface textures. That could be brought out quite nicely if the exposure was just a bit less.

I had to have a quick play with the posted file. I'm gone for a while too, and may have to play with that larger file later. There's a thousand things you can do with this shot but there's more detail there than you might think. I decided to make them a bit past their prime, just to see.

It's amazing how confounding a simple shot can be! S-

Wow, those dark ones were ugly. I think this is closer to what I was thinking, but at this point, I think I'm moving on. S-
