Yes lovely light and Autumnal colours..... as you are shooting into the light you have picked up some lens flare, the green mark and in particular the light area in the centre of the image which draws your eye to it. The 18mm focal length has produced some distortion evident in the leaning trees.

In my mod I have removed some of the flare and the lens distortion....just a thought Wink

Cheers, a definite improvement! I'm using LR3 & used some corrective on the distortion in the lens profile, it didn't do much...how did you get rid of the flare?

It's already made a huge difference, cheers!

Hi Neil... the green blob was removed using the clone tool on PS elements and I used the burn tool to darken the area to the middle of the shot. The transform tools were used in an attempt to remove the lens distortion.

The trees are tilted because you had your camera pointed down, - try to keep it level to minimize distortion. The lens flare is caused by light entering the lens from the side and bouncing around inside the glass elements, - so use a lens hood, or move the camera to exclude the light.

The distortion can be removed in Elements, but best to try to avoid or minimze, though a deliberate tilt, as in shooting upwards close to a building can be used for dramatic effect. Flare is easily removed as Trev pointed out.

This is let down by the over exposed sun area. This will always happen in such circumstances and the simple answer is to move until the sun is behind a tree, then you get rid of the over exposure and flare much easier. Why ISO1000? Always use the minimum ISO possible to avoid quality issues. 400 would be enough here.
