I've ulpoaded a mod. as well but this time I've taken a slightly different route. I've increased the exposure and the brightness slightly rather than use shadows/highlights as I didn't like the effect that was giving me. The dark area in the middle right would respond to being worked on selectively, I tried a layer mask but by that time it was becoming time consuming, so I stopped. There is some detail in there though as you can see in Frank's mod. I just think it needs to be lifted by itself.
I also think that this is an impressive prominent building and would benefit from a really impressive, prominent sky. Unfortunately, none of mine fitted the bill so I've used another one that I shot while I was out somewhere!
Hope it's OK.
I uploaded a mod somewhere in between the other two mods uploaded.
Again i have added so sky detail using gradient fill and then adding clouds using a brush. The general picture then brightened with extra brightening to the shadows. Lastly I have used warp to straighten the left side of the build on the far left of the picture, although the buildings sides are not straight vertical it looks better in my opinion.
Hope this helps you a little.
If any part of this process is unclear to you and would like further help please just send me a pm and I will try explain in greater detail.
Since looking back at this photo once i uploaded I notice its actually brightened too much and could do with quite a bit of contrast re-adding.
But you now have 3 variants to look at.
That kind of thing happens to me quite a bit when I upload mods. I deliberately left mine slightly on the dark side because I wasn't sure how well it would fare during the transition.
At least we've all had the same idea, even if we did get there using different tools.
Bit of a learning curve for us all then maybe
Interesting image. The basic attempt in each mod is correct I think - the image needs to be brighter, but I think V2 is probably best. lighting will always be a problem with such images as ,as the sun comes round, what is in shadow and light continually changes. At what time is best to shoot?
Thanks Frank ,Bren, Rick,jestertheclown (I donot know his real name), Richard_OSullivan and Paul , I really learn a lot from you. When I started uploading my images in this site, I was totally unknown and have not ticked the critique box. Thus I have been deprived from these valualble comments, which has helped a lot about the art of photography. Now, I will all those shots again and surely will tick the box for allowing this site to invite critique and modification. Is there any embargo in doing such?
Bren is Jestertheclown.
Glad I was able to help.
