Another shot from the top end of Derwentwater, Derwentwater as been photographed so many time it is difficult to find fresh locations.
With the attached shot was shooting more or less into the light to get that Misty/Hazy sort of light, originally in colour but felt it better in Mono.
I like the shot but feel it does not quite work, opinions please.
Mike.

Hi, I shall agree with you black and white makes it look more dramatic. I suspect it leans just slightly on the right, but other than that it looks magic.

It's not how many times it has been photographed that is important, it's how you photograph it and this is brilliant.

Pretty good, recognised it as one of yours from thumbnail. It works for me but thats not to say it might have been better.
You think it does not quite work? Could it be the band of mist is just a bit too dense?
I would really need to start with RAW image and try different exposures and processing and then I would only end up something some would like and others would want to change.
See what others think,regards

Do you think any of the three mods Ive uploaded look right in comparison?

I removed the apparent lean, - it may have been actually level, but it needs to be apparently level in a wide shot like this.

I will provide more information when you comment on the mods.

I like Mod2 it seem to add a difference dimension with a softer feel to the shot.
Thanks, Mike.

The main tweaks Mike youve noticed. Its straightened, and Ive applied a noise filter just to soften to all except the line of trees; then I applied a diffuse glow to soften more, - make it glow a bit. The big difference also is that this one is flipped horizontally, so the hills descent from left to right, which subconsciously just looks more attractive. The top of the hill is slightly darker, and the water is brighter. Its also just black and white.


Thanks for taking part in the experiment!



regards

A very good image in its own right, yet at the same time it has huge potential and one which one could spend many hours playing around with.
