Lydford Gorge on a very bleak and rainy day. This is one that Iíve had hanging around for a while but been reluctant to post. This new voting system may just be the right tool for this one. If itís a minus vote please do comment, my skin is so thick, if itís not, many thanks for looking.Please look large if possible. Rob.

V2 added showing tree removed as sugested
I have re-visited V2 and tidied some of the faults that I knew were there, due to the pressure of time. Looked at the greens without any real success that I like. Perhaps someone could do a mod. Also have uploaded V3 the original file so that you can see where it came from. Rob.

Looking at the large version, the greens are a somewhat oversaturated and have lost detail. I like the path leading round the shot, but would like to see more water, don't know if another viewpoint would do that.
Also the tree in the foreground feels a little like it's blocking the view.

Better without the tree, if you've still got the original file (RAW if possible) the greens could be toned back to get some of the detail back as well.
It's what I love about digital, you can go back and keep trying.

I guess sometimes we can get overly picky about the details of the greens, but the photo itself is outstanding - the idea is to capture the scene for the viewer to take in what you do in person. I thing you did a splendid job pulling out the tree but both versions work for me. I can see and appreciate what whipspeed is trying to come up with and find it great information. But I am still thrilled for the current photos(s) as displayed too. Just my 2 cents worth.

Certainly an improvement with the tree surgery job !!
As for the greens,I reckon it is all a matter of taste.Personally I like to see them a ''strong'' colour. I realise that many think they should be the ''true'' colours !!
Good shot Rob.

Have look several times and still not sure whether I prefer that tree in or out, but given it really was there, perhaps have to vote for V1.

Also agree here Rob, I like V1 the natural look, been here many times, and the disaster that happened in 1953, took all the trees and many peoples lives, so the more vegetation the better.....
a wonderful shot

I like your original version also like Mynettes Mod. SmileYou know where you took this photo if it isn't too far from where you live I suggest you go back and try again without the tree. You could try different exposures and a ND filter the possibilities are endless .

A fine woodland walk so well captured - prefer the original version with tree and the vibrant greens.

Good work on the mod Linda. Did you use PS? I only have Elements & SE, not the full product, though I am considering it. (£££s?). I used PhotoImpact 8 in the main but it looks like I need a bit more practice.
