It certainly is.
This shot also has the same light/shadow dilemma for the camera, which has done reasonably well again.
Its also got a lot to look at, so is quite busy. The title suggests the focal point is washing, to you can use the camera, or post oricessing to really focus on that by zooming, or cropping.
Ive loaded two mods, the second is much more focused in the washing, and the colout tone change is due to the fact I assumed one part at least of the washing might be white, - a zoomed in shot may have made a similar choice; the mod1 is the original, with highlights toned down, and shadows lifted. Always a good idea, if you can to try not to have an extreme of light and an extreme of shadow in the same frame. Not always possible, but often is with a zoom.
Wow, Willie! I like them both, But Love Mod2!!! that looks great!!!
and now that i look at it, i obviously didn't look closely enough when naming it as there is not much washing filling that alley! i hope that i can modify the name?
Willie's second mod is a huge improvement as you have noted. The tonal range, as shot, had beaten you a bit giving a bright over exposed look in that top centre section. It is better to expose for the brightest bits, but then, with a shot like this, you would then need to brighten shadow areas.
Not always easy. I would actually prefer an even wider angle with ground level included.

Directly below your image is a button marked 'options.' Click on that and you'll find a drop down list of erm, options, one of which is 'edit photo' or something similar. Click on that and you'll return to the editing page, the one where you added the title, description etc. before you uploaded your shot.
You can change the name and save the settings on there.
Re. your image; I don't think anyone's mentioned it but it benefits from being rotated anti clockwise just a touch.
Hope this helps.
Hi Bren, thank you!
Yes, they're all a little tipsy at the moment, as I don't have my usual access to Photoshop for rotating. And i'm on a fast learning curve with Lightroom.
But the hardest part with photography is separating the emotional attachment from the actual quality or potential of the pic. This is wonderful to be getting such great feedback!

Yes, that's very often the way, particularly with shots, such as yours, which presumably were taken during your travels and as such will have a special significance for you.
As for the feedback, you've come to the right place. This gallery's intended for just that.
We aim to be honest and open in what we say, even if that occasionally comes over as seeming a bit negative. In reality, everyone's here to help each other.
Thank you, Bren. Sounds good to me! Better than being surrounded by "yes" people.
Will check out your website, too, if I may?
