I like the composition you've chosen with the path snaking through the landscape, very good.

I hope you don't mind me saying though, I think you've over sharpened this photo. If you look at the head land and distant land against the sky, as well as the areas of rock and chalk cliff faces and the grasses bottom left in the photo you can see white edges or halos. Sharpening increases the contrast of the edges giving the impression of increased sharpness. If this is over done then halos are quite evident. If you get to the point where you see halos appearing, then just ease the slider back a bit.

Also, try not to sharpen everything. Sharpening a photo has similarities to the effects of aerial perspective. Everything in the foreground has more colour, contrast, detail, definition and clarity compared with the back ground. The further back into a scene you look the less of all of these qualities you'll see. So the background will have less colour, contrast, detail, etc., than the foreground or mid ground. Your sharpening can follow this trend by not sharpening the b/g, giving the mid ground some gentle sharpening and leaving the highest amount for the foreground and your main subject.

This is how I generally sharpen my landscape photos and I feel it gives the photo more apparent depth. If everything is sharpened it tends to flatten the image.

This is only an opinion and not meant to offend.

Alan.

This is quite a good shot Tinley.

I read the feedback re sharpening, which prompted me to ask which software you use for post processing, and there may be tips we can give specific to your software.

Just as I see it, - it does have very slight evidence of what is likely over sharpening, but its not terrible. I think, from other shots of yours you use a compact, and theres no exif information here, so the more information the better.

The shot actually lacks some contrast in the land area, with the sky area benefiting with a touch less exposure, but you camera made a good compromise.

I did notice that the all important horizon is s tiny bit off level, - but its a small amount.

I loved that macro you loaded some time back too.

Lets know what software you use.



regards


Willie

I think the problem is that I used a program called Noiseware community Edition(for getting rid of noise in a picture) which if you over do can make the pictures look over sharpened,
Thanks for all the help thoughSmile

Yes, that sounds like the problem, noise reducers also sharpen, and if you dont have a lot of control over sharpening in the programme it ca cause this issue.

A superbly composed coastal landscape, this image invites me to walk along the winding cliff path
