I like this one as well, the composition (a backward s) working ever so nicely--with those great colors! YES!

This one is a lot better than the previous. You mentioned in the other that there might be a million things that could be done with it, but this is what really can be done with it, - use the wide end of the lens.

The exif needs some clarification, as the MODE is shown as Landscape; I think the mode is Auto, and the picture style is Landscape from what I see in Photoshop.
That style increases saturation, and enhances landscape colours.

The image will please many with its rich colours. The sky is a little overexposed, and the land a little under, - that typical for a shot thats averaged as this is.

With that imbalance tweaked, it can look a little better, especially that sky.

The general level of detail seems low, - perhaps you just didnt sharpen it after you re sized it for uploading, - not sure, but it can do with being a little sharper.

Nice overall. Mod uploaded with the exposure adjustments and sharpening. View large.

I uploaded mod2 which is rotated a little, - not certain if that river needed to be more level that it is.


regards


Willie

Hi Willie.

Thanks for mods. I prefer the level as it was, the river was flowing left to right so seeing the flow on the photo gives it a lob sided effect. The road on either side gives it a downward flow too.

I don't have Photoshop or anything that allows me do alter certain parts. like the sky, or to change the tone. I`m just learning with a an entry level camera so it`s all a learning curve for me.

The sky looks a lot better in your mod.

I think the "Landscape" mode in the exif comes from the position on the mode dial, as in macro, portrait, action and landscape. (see below)

Thanks.

Nige.

A dramatic shot of a splendid bit of Scottish scenery and Willie's mod has improved the sky as you say.
The only thing that concerns me is that the river seems to be flowing uphill from left to right in the original so I have rotated the image to the right and my eyes find that a little more comfortable - trouble is you lose some of the image edges in the subsequent cropping. Nice shot though and brings back memories - I think that's Chancellor's ridge on the left - never did that - too hairy!

Just a bit of EXIF, not the lot. Just the pertinent bits! Same comment as the previous one. Top section is over exposed and needs work, yet the bottom is near right. This shows you that the camera will get it wrong and you do need post processing, as has always been the case, wet or digital.

Try and not use camera modes, just the main 4. P, Av, Tv and manual are quite enough and give control. There is nothing wrong with your 700D. For most purposes you will not tell the difference between that and a top of the range model.

You don't need Photoshop, but do need something like Elements. You will not get it right in camera all the time. Not possible.

Paul

Hi Salopian

Maybe a bit more of straightening to the right I think, bringing it up more to the left. I see what you mean though.

Thanks.

Hi, just noticed your mod.. Thanks. Tends to loose the sky with the over straightening don't you think??
