Taken on a trip to Scotland in March.

Sharpened slightly, to much maybe and not cropped and hand held.

I like it. my eye goes from the bottom left to the top where there`s a snow flurry going on!!

Hi Nigel

I agree this is a very pleasing composition and an attractive scene. The lines of the water edge curving and taking you into the frame. The morning sun lighting up the moorland and accentuating the colours of the brown grasses.

I also agree that it looks like it is over sharpened. Quite gritty in appearance and even with a moderate zoom into the image it pixelates very quickly. Try pulling it back in editing. If you want to up the contrast use a levels layer or brightness/contrast should the original be a little flat.

Lots of tone and texture in this too so it may work well in mono - I'll try a mod to satisfy my own curiosity and be interested in what you think.

Overall the original scene and visualisation is very good. A little more (or perhaps less) work in processing should improve it.

Regards
Paul

It looks good, more sharper than in colour. I`ll have a mess with LR and PS to see what I can so again.

I prefer your second version with the reduced sharpening. Softer feel (not as in sharpness but more muted and delicate).

Nice work.

Agree with Paul (Coast) second version for me, maybe try to bring out what colors you have in the shot to help with contrast, I know you don't have a lot to work with but see what you can get out of the trees.
Nice composition.
Mike.

V3 is a good practise with your new software to show how you have latitude to present an image in the way you visualise it perhaps. I quite like this as it definitely has a frosty feel but also it increases the barrenness and isolation.

Looks like you are getting to grips with the LR5 and PS very well. A steep learning curve but plenty of tutorials and guides available on the web.

Regards
Paul
