One of the Killarney lakes. Thanks everyone for the advice and tips on previous download. In this capture, I consciously excluded land foreground. My intend was to use the perspective of the Mountains to guide the eye to the distant mountains. I chose a 2/3 sky relation because it had interesting cloud arrangement. I was shooting into the sun, which may have caused a indication of glare in spots.

Good sky Paddy. Your decision to go with a 1/3 foreground and 2/3 sky was the right one. It gives the shot a good perspective and view point. My only comment is that there is a magenta cast to the shot which is particularly apparent in the water. You can see the colour cast more clearly from the thumbnail. I have uploaded a mod for you where I have used the selective colour tool to reduce the amount of magenta in the shot by gettting on for 70%. I also used a curves adjustment to darken the sky a little to give it a bit more contrast.

Best wishes

Catherine

A very pleasing image, and you have considered your composition well, with a fine result. My only niggle would be the magenta cast, but Catherine has dealt with that.

Thanks Cath,

I hope I am not sounding stupid, but what is magenta cast, what causes it. The shot was captured with a lot of front light; I was passing this spot when driving. I would have preferred a better light source but when you are touring you take what you get when passing a scene like this. Thanks for taking the time to view and comment....Thanks for the great Mod which was very enlightening ..................Paddy

PS Thanks Pamela to.

The magenta cast is causing the blue to look mauve because there is red in it. Casts are often caused by using the wrong White Balance setting.
