Lovely shot, great warm colours. I think the brightness on the right is O.K but perhaps the darkness on the left could be lightened just a tad.

Hi Prabh,

I can live with the brightness but overall, this looks as if it's had some processing carried out.
Noise removal perhaps?

Bren.

No Bren, just tonal contrast adjustments and then used Grad Neutral Density filters in color efex pro

I don't find the brightness too bad either. I think the cloud on the left helps to balance it. As Sylvia said though, you could try to lighten the left a bit. The horizon looks tilted very slightly counter-clockwise but overall I think it's a good shot.

Is it just me, or is this listing heavily to the left?


I do think it needs straightening, - and that area at the right is a problem that you may have introduced Prabh. Its not so much the brightness, which isnt too bad, its the heavy striations you see in that area, light and dark lines. I would prefer to see those gone, - BUT, they may not show in a large file, and just be due to compression. If the large file is OK, I would reduce highlights there just a little. And Sylvia has proposed a great idea, - lighten the left, - get more detail from the shadows.



Regards


Willie

About 2 correction required by my assessment. A problem for me is the gradual shift across the frame from light to dark (or vice versa dependent upon direction) otherwise this is a fairly pleasing landscape picture.

Yes, quite a lean. It may be the line of the bay rather than a true tilt, but it does need straightening. The tonal gradiant from right to left is a little unsettling and the clouds look a bit artificial.

Nothing artificial about them, the cloud formations on Table Mountain are quite interesting and you get varied shapes and sizes pretty much every day Smile
