Hi all, hoping for some general critique on this, want to know if i'm heading in the right direction!
This is St Michael's chapel on Brentor, a volcanic plug on the western edge of Dartmoor.

I think that this is a pretty good shot and you've come away with a decent image. The rocks in the foreground look a little over exposed and the white lichen looks burnt out. Perhaps slightly underexposing might have helped here. The sky is bland, but you've got to work with what you've got. A good strong composition means that the image is pleasing to the eye.
Thanks david, will go back to the raw and have another go at the exposure, I'm a complete novice at converting them and perhaps wasn't paying enough attention!
That depends Simon, on what track you meant to be on!
Youve got some elements that are good, - the rocks leading into the image for example, and youve chosen an evening light.
The light in this case seems a little too strong, and as David mentions it glaring strongly off the foreground rocks which draw the attention.
I wonder if a portrait approach might have worked better to take advantage of that rocky lead in to the castle,, from a lower vantage point, and reduce the amount of sky? How about a monotone?
As it is, - Im not sure the castle, the rocks, or the view into the distance is the main feature.
Ive loaded some mods and crops for consideration, with some comments in the mods.
Hi willie, thanks for the critique, think i'm going to start shooting raw+jpeg so i can get the processing a bit more accurate. I meant for the church to be the main focal point, but i can now see how its position doesn't suggest that. Back to the drawing board!
