A really dramatic shot of beautiful Scottish scenery - the colours and the sky are most impressive - I imagine it was quite chilly even in the sunshine as I can see whitecaps on the loch which suggests a brisk breeze!
I have taken the liberty of loading a mod, first cropping slightly to get the diagonals coming out of the corners ( a tip I learned from Moira ) then using the dodge tool to lighten the trees a touch, followed by a very slight anti-clockwise rotation. All minor changes as the original is very good.

Thanks Geoff and Peekay2001.

I think the level is a odd one in the photo, it`s a bit deceiving due to the shore line, even getting it straight the level looks uneven.

I can see the difference that the top crop does with the corners but I think the bottom crop could stay as it was..

Still looks good though, the colours were not far from what the camera gave, just used a vivid option on the Canon 700D.

It was quite a warm day, about 12c at sea level and probably about 0c on the mountain tops.

I`m still trying to work out the layers in Photoshop never mind the tools that Lightroom and Photoshop offers.. I`m sure I`ll get to working it all out soon..

Thanks

Nige.

I agree with the tilt, - looks like 1.23 degrees if I measure it.


Its clearly an effect you wanted, - high contrast vivid colour. Its one that will work for some and not for others.


I uploaded a version thats quite a bit different, and has more detail in the tree covered hill in the left, with the trees looking less blue.


Have you looked at any tutorials on layers so far? I struggled with what exactly layers were for some time. I found it hard to visualise exactly how layers worked, until I understood that layers and masks come as a set. You have one with the other. The its a template, like any other template.

If you were ever familiar with the film darkroom, its exactly the same as when you wanted to expose one area more than another, so you used a piece of card to exclude light from one area, and allow it in another.


Regards



Willie

I can send some links if you dont have any good ones.
