Hi Graham,

I like the angle of the building, it takes your eye's deep into the image, well done.

Graham I've never been to Alcudia but with the lights being on and reflecting into the water I guess it may have been a little darker. You can darken the image a touch by going to "Levels" in your software and moving the middle pointer to the right which will darken the midtones, you may also have this option in the "Default" box. Then by adding a touch of vibrance you can strenghten the colours.

Made these adjustments in the mod and sharpened slightly

Nice shot Graham.

Take care
Martin

Thanks Martin

I did darken it a little but didn't want to go to far, but I like the mod and take on board your points.

A good effort, but despite wht people say about breaking rules, IMHO this would benefit by having the reflections covering 2/3 of the frame, leaving 1/3 for the building. Not a case of pushing RoT just making the point that it would look better that way.

If it ever rains in Alcudia it just absolutely pours down. Because of the very small amount of rain experienced generally, it fails to soak into the ground and tends to run off in torrents.

A little bit of contrast added and a little sharpening and you will have a good image.
