Welcome to EPZ Robinson.


This is a really nice panoramic shot. The sky is the real feature here, and its amazing. Youve handled the highlights well. You could have used a lower ISO or a smaller aperture, however, theres no visible noise, and it appears quite sharp.

Its works well just as it is. Its possible to tweak this if you wanted, and Ive uploaded two mods to show variations.

Both have increased contrast, which also gives more colour density. Mod1 has a little space added at the bottom to place the horizon on a third, for a 'traditional" composition; mod2 is quite the opposite, making the image narrower to enhance the pano effect.


Hope this is constructive, and do enjoy the site.


regards


Willie

Hello........ I have done a mod simply because I couldnt resist as I love this kind of image. Great shot! I was in two minds as whether to bother uploading the mod as I dont think it is an improvement, just a different crop, focusing on the rainy areas, I did alter the colour, saturation and contrast slightly too. Hope you like it!

The sky is very strong, but it does need a focal point for me and nothing stands out.

Thankyou paulbroad . in this type of shot what would you suggest as a focal point?. what i saw i tried to capture . as to me its the whole image of the distant horizon.rather than to draw the eye. but i appreciate you comment .
