Callanish stones on the Isle of Lewis in the Hebredies.
Although I really do like this, and standing stones are a fantastic subject, for me the large black block on the left is way too dark. Also, there's quite a bit of posterisation in the sky. I know this can happen when you do tonal conversions on a JPEG image in 8-bit per channel mode, so maybe that's what's caused it? I suppose the alternatives are to either shoot in RAW, or convert the JPEG into 16-bit once you're in your editing software. But I don't know how you processed the image in the first place, so don't know whether you've got that option or not?
Thank you for your helpful comments and I agree. Although I have been taking photos for more years than I care to remember, I am a novice when it comes to digital and digital processing. It was shot as a jpeg and last night I was playing about with it in Photoshop elements 9 and was pleased with the result although I tried to fix some of the issues you mention. I am not sure if I can convert it into 16-bit but will try. I dont often shoot in RAW but understand have more options in doing so. Many thanks for posting.
