Another image from my visit to Downhill beach on Saturday. I merged 3 images together and then tried my hand at dodging and burning in Elements. Would appreciate your views in regards to this.
Thanks to one and all who voted and left comments on my previous posting. A special thanks to Valery (ValeryAst), John (Jdinne) and Kathryn (Abeeror2) for their much appreciated UAs
A lovely image with beautiful colours
A great image, Jim - I love the 'big' sea and the colours of the background as well as the rocks in the foreground!
A great image with lovely colours
Beautiful scene Jim, love the colours,
Nice Image! I Like it!!
Delicate tones and light. Love the texture in those well placed rocks.
Great composition on a lovely landscape shot
Amazing light and colours,very beautiful!
Great photo , pink colours set the scene really well , nice shot JIm.
I love the pinks in here Jim but I would love to see the original unadulterated versions before you dodged and burned
Just gorgeous|! Ann.
realy like this one jIM realy stands out grt lighting cpatured perfectley
Good strong fg and like the glow cast over the land by the lovely sky.
Love the forground colours Jim, nice composition but I am not sure of the pink colour at the back.
A beautiful composition and very good blend.
The only thing which niggles for me are the lights in the distance
being too pink.
The sky is wonderful and you don't seem to have overdone the dodging and burning.
It's great that you're trying out all this new stuff Jim.
It would be interesting to see the original of this one.
Lovely image with nice foreground details.
beautiful scene well taken.
Nice colour great detail A1---------Milky
brilliant colour and detail jim love the processing cracking work nice one
This is an excellent photo Jim !! very well timed and taken
Gorgeous image with beautiful colours.
Good on you Jim Giving something a go and you did well good foreground detail in V1 maybe a touch to much pink in the distance but I like v1 best all in all nice one.
Very Nicely Done.................John
a good bit of play Jim has worked well
A beautiful coastal vista Jim, one which is full of beautiful colour and light. The variant has been very well worked, however for me the tint looks slightly overdone. So for today I shall opt for image number one "Au natural"
Well I really like it it might be a little pink................. and has kate said the lights on the left look a bit over done (They look bright yellow and red on my screen) Maybe they would be better to go completey............
I am just trying out this sort of stuff, and it makes a great difference, Overall I think it is a great improvement
A lovely image, well captured
Lovely image Jim, I like both versions.
Two great photo's Jim, like both also, great to nip back and forth from one to the other, looks like a pink thunderstorm, regards Leon.
Top class work Jim lets have some more please.
Beautiful image JIm I like the first image Jim well taken.
Two superb variants, Jim, v1 is stunning, great foreground interest adds to the picture, great composition as well.
Lovely work Jim..Lin
Two interesting images V2 is my favourite sorry can't comment on your doging and burning I have n o experience of the technic - Elizabeth xx
V1 is top class, Jim. Superbly worked
Bumpy beach, Jim!
This is very beautiful.... V2 gets the vote today!
Two super images Jim, No1 gets the vote.
Great Capture Jim beautiful work on both---------Milky
Interesting to read your opening remarks up top, Jim: it's a nicely composed coastal scene but captured under rather flat light and with little contrast in the image. It is perhaps marginally OOF and I am wondering with a shutter speed of 0.4 sec. you were supporting the camera on a rock. but if using a tripod there may have been slight movement of it during exposure.
You have made a good attempt at enhancing the shot in V 1 although you may have warmed it up a little too much.
Might be worth going back to the original and having a look at the histogram and checking both the black and white ends of the graph: the other thing that might work would be to increase contrast, possibly brightness and only then thinking about enhancing colour saturation, but being careful not to overdo the last as it could produce a very unnatural result.
Not sure if any of this is of help but it is offered with the best of intent.
PS. It occurs to me that when asking for advice as you have, it might be worth while permitting Modifications, as other members could then apply whatever processing they feel useful, and you would be able to view the results too..........R.
stunning beach and love the colours . great creativity Jim
