Take a few month ago on way up to Scotland.

Played with this with LR and PS.

It was quite bland before tweaking it and looks nice and vibrant.

I don't think there was any need to get the full wingspan as it looks good as it is.

Looks good to me Nigel.

I have seen distant shots of these structures many tomes, but never one this close. I agree you dont need the wing, as for me, this is as much about that lady taking a snap, as it is about the structure; her presence makes it work.

For my taste, a little over saturated, but not so much that it hurts the image at all.

I wondered about the other people, and have tried a mod with only the woman and the girl to see what it would look like, - its mod2. Mod1 is slightly less sat and a little warmer tone.

Good work,



regards


Willie

Hi Willie,

Thanks. Smile

I`ll let the wife know you called her a Lady!! lol.. She`ll be over the moon..

As for the photo, I wasn't sure how far to go with boosting the colours, I`m just going by other photographers and how far they saturate theirs, that's how I got it as it is.

I`m just getting used to LR and PS, but need to upgrade my 7 year old monitor to HD quality for getting a good colour fix on photos.

I like your mod with the couple removed, very clever too. It looks good. This monitor doesn't show any difference between the two mods with the warmth or tone, plus my eyes aren't as good as they used to be.

Thanks for critique, it`s much appreciated.

Regards

Nige.

Composed very nicely using the image thirds - not that we should slavishly follow the rule but this does illustrate it very well.
You wer blessed with a cracking sky and the light from the side has made for attractive shadows to show up the structure.

This is not over saturated for me, but i wouldn't go any more than this. Rather like in the film days when some would prefer the rich colours of Velvia where others would prefer a more natural look. The beauty these days is you can do both very easily.

You may or may not be into mono, but I've taken the opportunity to have a go at a mono conversion. What do you think?

Hi Keith.

Thanks for the mod!! Looks good.

It`s amazing what can be done with a Photoshop or Lightroom.

It look quite eerie in black and white..
