Afternoon,

Huge thanks and appreciation for the response to yesterdays upload (two UA's and a HC....oooh!) Smile.
Todays upload was taken last Saturday at Tarn Hows, Cumbria. Managed to stay relatively dry until this point. This rock was just that little bit in the water for me to stretch to so in we go!.
I'm in two minds of whether it's bright enough. Do you think it needs a tweak to bring it up? Shame the left is a bit gloomy on the tree line too.. It's another ten stopper job if you hadn't already guessed, something daft like 300 seconds.

Thanks for looking

Mand

Beautiful capture and composition . The reflections of the sky in the water really make it for me

Stunning image Mand. I think you've got the tweaks just right giving it that element of moodiness but retaining the beautiful colours and tones. Very nice indeed.

Very fine composition. and I think that nauralness of the light works well. Have you tried a mono version?

cheers Charlotte. Howie, mono is the scary zone for me.

The long exposure has really pulled the light out of the sky here. It's nicely flattening the lake too which is an effect well suited to a large body of water (no accusations of over-milking any turbulence, unlike with rivers!). The stone works well as foreground interest and speaking as one who often takes their socks and shoes off for the sake of the art... well done!
I agree the dark LHS is a bit distracting for me too. Often seems to be an issue with 10 stopper images. All the tones on the RHS are bright and lovely where as the LHS is a bit muddy. I can see a couple of options. Either a selective curves adjustment to the LHS which you blend in using a mask (something I find very difficult to blend without tell tale signs) or you do a square crop. Using my hands the square crop is my fave because it's a 'static' frame which I thinks suits the mood of the image and by cropping off the LHS you preserve all those lovely colours and tones that make the image stand out so well!
I have to say the standard of your work is fabulous!
Regards
Al

Beautiful, Mand, maybe it could go a bit brighter, but it's still a cracking shot as it is Wink
