This is an image you haven't seen before and I was about to bin until I duplicated it twice, ran it through photomatix and then finished it off in lightroom and neat image.

I've only had lightroom for a couple of days and still getting used to it, but love it to bits....any other tips would be greatly appreciated to help me find my way round it quicker.

Fabulous! I taught myself with the Scott Kelby book. Not a quick fix I know but it taught me a lot

Nicely done. Like the sunlit top of Haystacks reflected in the lake.

Lots of tough competition for this image - but this has to be right up there with the very very best.

Lovely shot, Mike.

I really enjoy these lakeside images of yours.

I think in this case the image would benefit from a little more contrast/bite, if you don't mind me saying.

Try duplicating the layer and set the blend mode to:
Multiply; opacity 25 - 35%
or
Overlay; opacity 35 - 55%
or
Soft Light; opacity 45 - 75%

See what you think! Wink

You may or may not agree. Personally, I think all of these would give your image that little something extra Smile

Got to admit, I never get tired of these - wish I lived close enough to try some of my own!

Cheers

Bill

Thanks for that Bill. Unfortunately I am without PS at the moment. Just working with lightroom otherwise I would give your suggestion a go. I have been working on it again tonight and the result is a very slightly more punchy result but I can only upload so many of these. Once back up and running with PS, will give your suggestion a whirl
