I have uploaded another from yesterday's shoot trying to learn for others mods on yesterdays with my limited skills in Picassa and Gimp.

Any thoughts, comments, improvements welcomed.

I really like the colours here - but (and I have checked my monitor calibration) it is just a little dark. I think it is an image worth spending a littl etime with in PS or whatever software you are using. If possible it needs a little lightening and push the contracst a little too I think.

But very nice sumptious colours and shapes Ummmm

Cheers

Robert,

Thanks that's very helpful.

I use Picassa and Gimp (badly) and my monitor is uncalibrated so I go by eye. When I can get to the main PC I will upload the original as a variation although it bears little resemblance to the upload. I will also lift the light a shade and play with the contrast as you suggest though don't hold your breath I will get it right.

I took about 200 shots over an hour or so but didn't realise I was getting lens flare as I don't have a filter hood. I have some pictures that came out way better than this with the shadow I composed for on the rocks but all ruined by the flare.

I really like the colours you have here, Dave, and some great shapes too. For me though, it feels just a little unbalanced; although I can't quite put my finger on why. I think it may be that the sky feels smaller because of the shape of the clouds - maybe by adding more sky this would have been counteracted. I'd also really like to see a more square crop, taking out all of the small houses in the background on the right. I think the contrast against those bulky rocks leading into the tall figure on the left works really well and would be accentuated by such a crop. Having said that, I've just looked at the large version and I don't seem to have the same issues!

I prefer the more natural looking sky in V2 but the FG is too cold. Much prefer the FG in version 1
