The exposure you used has given a nice quality to the water but looks to have overexposed it slightly yet the contrast is so strong that you have also lost some of the detail of the rock in the darker areas

I've put up a nodification in which I've tried to bring out a litle more detail in the water and rocks + warmed it up a little.

It looks like an improvement to my eye (but you may see it differently?)

Hi Simon,

What you have is a pleasantly composed shot that’s slightly over-exposed. If you look at the background behind the tree is predominately white and in the flowing water there is a level of detail missing.

My advice would be to switch on histogram view when you take the shot and ensure that the graph is not bunched too far to the right (or left, otherwise it’ll be under exposed) and if it is pop off another shot to compensate.

I also note that you shoot in jpeg. For best results switch to RAW if you can. It means you have to do some post processing – sharpening, contrast etc, but it will pay dividends in the end but will not help if you over/under expose.

Finally, you could also try a crop and remove the top 1/3 to remove the skyline completely, it maybe worth a try.

I hope that’s been of some help, I may try a mod when I get in a tonight (or over the weekend)

Cheers,

Gary

This is a lovely place. Because the sky is uninteresting and very white I agree with cropping it totally to bring back the emphasis to the water.

Great shutter speed and water detail.

The sky was really throwing the exposure off when I looked at the histogram in lightroom.

I've added a mod with comments.

Cheers
