Not an easy shot with the bright flat sky. Did you use an ND grad...


Theres a few spots on the lens or sensor visible in the water area you need to look out for.

The shot is good overall, would work so nicely with a blue, or detailed cloud sky.

Uploaded a mod with the spots dealt with, highlights toned down slightly, and sharpening applied to the lower area only. The rocks in the river dont seem sharp, while the buildings are very sharp. This might suggest that your point of focus, which for a scene like this and the aperture used should be about a third the distance into the scene, and not the far bank, might have been off...



Regards

Thanks Willie,
I like your mod and will check sensor etc for spots. I was in a hurry to get this shot and used a polarising filter at full gradient on top of a UV filter. I would have preferred to wait another 30min for the light to go a bit. It was a task for a forum requiring at least 5 sec exp. Still learning!

Yours in pixellation
