The light wasnt very good but I liked the sky.
No filters with me so processed twice from RAW, blended using layer masks in PS.
Slightly boosted saturations and contrast.

1/200 @ f/14

Thanks for looking, all comments very welcome, good, bad or indifferent.

Fantastic range of colours, similar to some HDR images I've seen.

I would love to know the PS technique you used for this. Was it as simple as having two images (1 X overexposed & 1 X underexposed) and gradient blending them both together?

The photo doesn't exactly adhere to the two thirds rule, but I really like it still!!

Paul

Thanks everyone for the kind words, felt this still worked even though I totally ignored the thirds, couldn't bring myself to crop any sky out and wanted the handrail to enter in the corner.

Paul, take a look at my post on THIS forum topic. Works in most cases but the amount of blur required can vary greatly, 20px used on this one.
Hope this helps.

Adrian.

Can't fault the composition (I uploaded an identical shot, except in landscape rather than portrait format, back in December!) The shot would probably have been better taken earlier in the day, with better side lighting (as a general rule the best shots from the Common side of the lake are to the south west and look best in the morning. In the afternoon the best shots are from the other side at Llangasty where the best views are to the east). And, as you say it would have been better with filters. But, don't let me damn you with faint praise and (hopefully) constructive criticism because its still a pretty good effort.

The boardwalk acts as a great lead in to the image and is married nicely with the great streaking of the clouds. Nice work, Adrian.

Adrian, this looks like a fantastic location, where abouts on the lake was this taken and whats the best way to get there from Swansea.

Hi Tony, only been there the once but will return. Take the Swansea Valley road as far as Brecon. At the large roundabout, shortly before you reach the town, follow the signs for Abergavenny(A40) at next roundabout stay on A40, after a fairly short distance you will see a sign for Llangors, just before you reach Llangors, the lake is signposted on the right. This will take you across the common where you will find this area.

Adrian.
