I've uploaded an original image in the Critique Gallery of a shot I took during my recent adventure trip down the River Ganges. I really like the image but my processing skills (or lack of them) are letting me down.
This is one of the shots of my India adventure that I'd like to print onto canvas, but I'm frustrated that I'm not processing the image in the best way. ErictheViking gave me a good idea to ask for advice and mods from members. Any ideas and interpretations would be much appreciated.
5 days before I left for India I was told I had kidney cancer..........it was a massive shock! I'm going into hospital tomorrow morning to have part of my kidney removed and will be home in about 10 days time, and will then have about 3 months off work - great......loads of time to work on my processing skills and hopefully produce some images to print!
Thanks for all of your help and advice and I'll respond to any mods and advice when I'm back home.

Sorry to hear about you kidney cancer Elaine.
Wishing you a speedy recovery with plenty of time for some photoshop fun
Wishing you a speedy recovery Elaine.
Thanks Guys.Looking on the bright side - lots of free time to while away..thank goodness for Ephotozine
Sorry to hear your news Elaine.. I hope they get everything sorted for you and your back on your feet soon.
As for your image its damn good as is.. maybe just import it into adobe camera raw and add a touch more contrast and a little bit on the blacks slider, just to give it a little more punch and a touch more glassiness to the water.
But I wouldnt do anything major to it, as said its damn good as is and I'd be happy to have it on my wall.
Sorry to hear your news Elaine, we all wish you a very speedy recovery.
Thanks Tricia and everyone at Epz and also magicaxeman. Still in hospital. Your messages cheered me up. Maybe home Mon/tues xx
You can use the time to plan your next trip to some exotic location - I've enjoyed reading your blog!
Hope you're up and about soon!
I'm back home from hospital after a 17 day stay, minus 25% of my left kidney and a 15" scar across my middle (my bikini wearing days are definitely over!). Waiting for confirmation, (as I refuse to contemplate any other outcome), that I'm in the clear and can get on with the rest of my life.
I've got to say I was cared for by an ACE team of staff at all levels at Blackpool Teaching Hospitals............Long Live Our National Health Service.
Thanks to everyone who has offered mods and suggestions on my image.....it was great to see the messages when I finally got home - it cheered me up
Also I was delighted to find I'd won the photo month "morning" competition for one of my shots taken on the River Ganges as the sun rose, and waiting for me on my return was a fantastic Alta Pro Tripod. I can't wait to get mobile again, (stuck in bed most of the time at the moment), and try out my new gear. Thank you very much everyone at Ephotozine
Thanks for all of your good wishes everyone - I'm looking forward to indulging in my photography obsession again.
Good to hear your on the mend Elaine, here's hoping your full recovery is swift and hassle free!
That's excellent news, Elaine - both on the health front and the award!
Let''s hope the positive news keeps coming.
Great news Elaine.
Thanks Ade, Malcolm and Bren,
Your good wishes are much appreciated.
Great to hear you are back and on the road to recovery. And congratulations on the award as well.
