Hi John, I like the composition in this image and the colours are better than previous uploads. I can understand why you used shutter speed of 1/30 sec to blur the water but this has resulted in a blown out sky with no detail available to recover. I would have used an ND Grad filter in this case and tried for later in the day when the sky was not so bright, although the latter is not always possible. The image also appears over sharpened.

Its overexposed and over sharpened. The exposure doesnt make a lot of sense, as you would expect underexpose, not overexposure from this scene. The small piece of sky is not the normal sky colour, so I imaging uoui have applied some post processing changes. Very difficult to recover this as is, but made an effort in the mod.

Hi John, Yes unfortunately for us landscape photographers, we don't have the easy option that studio photographers have, where they can put a light on here and there to make the lighting perfect. I put your image in Photoshop, dropped in a sky from my stock images. I went into layers and chose multiply, then used my adjustment brush and painted in black to clear the sky that was on ground. I then went to filter - blur - guassian blur - 0.8. I then again used the adjustment brush and painted in black except for the water. Hope you like what I've done.
