Hi Billy,

A touch of the same problem as yesterday, with too much of tree invading from the left. Imagine your looking out of a window with shutters and only one shutter is open, this is the same with the tree blocking out a lot of the view. I've rotated the image to the right to level then cropped from the left to reduce the tree branches. Also I added canvas to the right and added more of the image along with some tone adjustments and the removal of some of the branches coming into the image from the top.

Keep clicking Billy.

Take care

Martin

I have to agree with the comment above! The MOD is really good and looks like a different picture.

If I was to change this, I'd crop a bit from the top and some from the LHS. without adding anything to the right.
Also, to me, it looks oversharpened although that's very likely to have been caused by the increased saturation/contrast which I think is also overdone.
Sorry if that all sounds a bit negative.
Just my opinion.

Bren.

I've added a mod. in which I've desaturated it slightly and reduced the contrast, also slightly, then cropped it as I suggested above. I suppose really, I should have straightened it too.
I've also tweaked it using the shadows/highlights tool which has reined in the brightness and opened up quite a bit more detail.
The version that I have here is a little brighter than it appears in the upload but hopefully, you'll get the idea.

Hope this helps.

Bren.
