calm

calmA besutifully composed shot. and calm colours. You've done well to throttle back a very bright sun, with its partial obscurety behind the clouds.

I actually like these milky-water shots. But I agree with annettep to a point at least. I think a slighty quicker shutter speed would have emphasised the mid-ground swell; gieving the picture a bit more dynamics.

It also lloks like yo've quite rightly brought some of the detail back to the foreground rock, but the masking has left a slight halo around it. that said, it's always going to be a difficult composure when a dark object is almost silhouetted in contrast to a bright sky.

That said, it really is a great shot and my comments meant as constructive critique.

Kind Regards,
Brian

Column's

Column'sAh yes Gwynn. memories of my first DSLR wedding shoot (my wife's cousin got married there a few years ago). An iconic building, nicely captured Sir.

Could I offer a little constructive comment?
If you reduce the Radius and / or Strength in your HDR software, the white halo effect will be reduced.
Also, a tweak of Lens Correction (made manually) can eliminate / redcue teh converging verticals and the feel of the building falling backwards. If oyu expand the Canvas beyond it's original size, you'll reduce the risk of losing thte extremities of the building prior to cropping.

Hope this helps. But gotta say, you've had some great shots from your visit to Leeds.
Best regards, Brian.
