Hi Anthony, welcome to EPZ. You've chosen a nice location for your image, but I felt a couple of things let it down. Firstly, I thought the image lacked a little punch. It looked flat with little definition. Secondly, I would have moved in front of the large pole which is directly in front of your image and spoils the shot. I put your image into Photoshop ACW, boosted the contrast, highlights etc. I used the graduated filter to boost the sky a little. I opened it in PS, copied the background layer, added a gradient map from the adjustment layer. I then removed the large post in the front of the image by using the patch tool. Added a levels layer, then a curves layer and adjusted the RGB colours. I think your image has now a little more punch to it and hope you like it.

Hi Anthony

I really like the shot but thought it was a little flat. I have uploaded a mod where I have played with the light to try to overcome this.
