Popular hill, apparently (near Bridport, Dorset). I was here mid July, but rather late in the evening, which you can see since the hill and trees are just silhouettes against the sky. I owned no grad filters at the time, but this was compensated a bit in PS.

Looks a bit overdone I'm afraid.

A bit too pink I reckon, would like to have seen the colours in the original.

you wouldnt have needed any grads for this shot anyway, if you wanted the hill/trees in silhouette. a simple exposure for the sky would have done the job perfectly.

Thanks for your comments, all of you. Adam, I know I wouldnt need grads for a silhouette shot, but then a silhouette shot was my second choice, after deciding it wasnt possible, under the circumstances, to get a lighter foreground. Still, the silhouettes are nice too...

I think the colours are fine - it can be this amazing at the right time on some days in my experience. My only gripe would be that the image appears a little soft in focus - have you tried unsharp mask on this before? It can sharpen things up slightly...

No, I didnt. Thats because the orignal image is sharp, but adding a grad filter in PS softened the silhouettes, making it look like the photo is not perfectly focused. Since, however, the sky looked really uninteresting before adding the filter, I had to choose - and decided to leave it as you see it now. But thanks for the suggestion. (Or do you think using unsharp mask *after* adding the filter would have worked as well?)
