West Kirby, the River Dee estuary at low tide... my first post here... crits welcome... I need it!
A big warm welcome to the site. Glad you found us!
You have a strong composition. I think the mud could do with a little tweak in ps to bring out the contrast. I'd be more than happy with this if I had, like yourself, only had my camera for one day!
We are going back to West Kirby this evening if you are out and about (bring wellies!!! )
Once again, a big welcome. (right Pete, where's my recruiter points??? lol)
Welcome Ian, great image....hope you enjoy your time with EPZ, you'll learn a lot
Thanks for the welcome and the comment... this shot used the "in camera HDR" function, which only produces a Jpeg image... I prefer to shoot RAW as I've figured out how to PP them pretty well now... JPG is a little more difficult for me as I'm still learning the PS suite... For some reason I shot this with +.7 ev, so it's way too pale... got any tips on the best way to bring out the mud without losing too much of the boat?
open in ps, duplicate the layer, use the select tool on the mud, feather the edge (i go about 130) do a curve layer (try auto curves and see what is does first), tweak curve to satisfactory point. hth
Thanks for the tip... I had a go and did a little work on the sky too... looks much better now, thanks Mand
