Solstice Fire

Solstice FireThis is very nice Den, the clouds lead very nicely to that fantastic sunset.

Hope you don't mind me adding some advice here Den,
One idea if people don't have a reverse grad is to use a second grad from the bottom to overlap the top grad slightly, you will need to increase the exposure for the foreground, however the overlap will still help to deal with the brightness.

Low low light

Low low lightFirstly, we'll done for sticking it out, some of the best light can occur after the sun has set.
I do like your other shots from Saltwick, but unfortunately this one feels unbalanced due to the dark cliff, cloud and left of the rock. Did you try one in portrait or even if you don't mind cropping, square may work?
You may be doing this anyway but - Regarding up-loading you could try this. Change profile to Srgb and when saving for web make sure you don't have change to Srgb clicked, otherwise this can oversaturate. Smile

Louise, Staithes

Louise, StaithesLovely image Martin, could possibly do with an extra half a stop of exposure, just to lift the white of the house? Although different monitors??

Forest Light

Forest LightHi Alan,

Great Image, I love the tones in the wood.

One good sharpening technique for web up-loading you could try is as follows (for printing work use sharpening once the image has been re-sized).

1.Re size to about twice the size of your final up load choice e.g. 800x1200
2. sharpen twice (don't worry that it looks totally over sharpened at this stage).
3. Now re size to your up load size e.g 400x600, you'll be suprised (hopefully)
4 Save for web as this will automatically change your image to 72 dpi

For different images you may need to experiment at stage 2

One final thing if you don't do it already, try not to sharpen water and skies as this creates noise.

Happy processing

Eli
