Morning Billy,

In my opinion this is a much better image than yesterday's, but does the water on the far bank look level to you Wink.

Billy when you give this image a slight turn to the right to level, (well at least in my eye's) in becomes a well balanced shot, well done. You have some forground interest which runs from near the bottom right and dissapears from the image on the left. You then have the water well contained by that and the far bank and the hills and clouds in the background, Billy the image works.

What i've done in the mod is level the image then some slight adjustments by adding some contrast to help the water and background hill stand out, I then erased it from everywhere else. Also I lightened that dark bit a touch as I know you don't like it as it is, then finished off by sharpening the image again more for the far bank then with the opacity reduced to 50% I erased the sharpening from the rest of the image.

Nice shot

Take care

Martin

Hi Billy,
Had another shot at this, much better comp. I straightened the image which took away the bit of path in the corner, corrected the histogram and then altered the graduation curves slightly to lighten the darker areas. I removed just a bit of green.

And now its a lot more obvious that the clouds are causing the right to be dark Billy.

A better image overall. Theres still a few tweaks that can improve the image, and perhaps your post processing technique.


The image to me is in two parts; the sea, which is dark and high contrast, and the land, which is a little hazy/flat with oversaturated greens. I would adjust theses areas independently in post processing to equalize the contrast, - more for the land, less for the sea; That triangle of grass on the left would improve the shot quite a lot if it wasnt there; this is very easily removed by copying some sea, and pasting it on top of the grass; feather the selection so you see no edges. The whole omage needs a slight clockwise rotation also.
Finally, the land area needs a little more sharpening on its own, - not the sea.


Ive loaded a mod with tihis done to show the difference. You can click View Large below the mod.


Hope this helps Billy,



regards



Willie
