Hi Mark,

Firstly welcome top EPZ - It's a fun place.

I think what you've captured in camera is a good shot and could benefit from a crop to turn it into a panoramic image. I'd lose the bottom of the shot, from the ramp down and the top to remove some of the extra cloud.

I'll do a quick mod' to demonstrate.

Cheers,

Gary

Quite like the pano crop mod too but would also look at a square crop. The main issue is that there was some very bright light when you took this shot which has resulted int he whites on the bouses being blown out .. just too bright and the cameras meter has been fooled.

Making adjustments for this would have given you a darker shot overall and kept detail in the highlights ... and would have given the image a lot more drama no matter what crop you opted for.

The colours and tones are great by the way though but its important to remember that with landscapes its quite often more about what you leave out than what you put in.

Oh and welcome to EPZ btw ...

This is such an enormously entertaining image (once again it has that strange miniature village feel) and to be honest I would not really wish to change anything. However I also do agree with the comments above - there is perhaps another crop here (and I have uploaded my version) and there is little doubt that the building towards the middle of the shot are indeed blown out - to deal with this pre production would have required some interesting technical stuff with white balances. Post production I can be addressed a little through selective darkening and curves and contrast.

Best wishes

Robert

Thank you all for your very valuable inputs, photography is like playing golf- looks easy but the finer points are very difficult to master unless you are a natural; i'm not and practice practice practice will hopefully reward me in my love for photography.

I think the others have really summed most of my comments up already - best advice - either a panoramic crop, or reframe to include something in the foreground, i.e. a boat or boat masts to give the shot a more 3 dimensional feels. at the moment there is a lot of empty space to be worked on. The sky looks a bit strange and doesnt look right for some reason, maybe this could be toned down a little to give more enphasis to the scene.
