Morning Nigel

You have a nice image of Whitby here. I like the way it is built up in layers; the sand, the houses, the cliff and then the chuch set against the deep blue evening sky.

I am only on iPad today due to being away with work so cannot look into this and upload a mod.

My points to consider would be

It appears to be on a slight lean. The houses running down to the left. An easy fix in LR or PS with a small clockwise rotation.

Did you go for the Photographers package in the end? If so and you have PS CC you can experiment with a levels layer to try and balance the exposure between the houses and the church. The houses being too washed out and over exposed here for me.

Using a levels layer you have three sliders along the histogram. Ignore the middle one but push the left black slider in a little until the houses darken down enough. The whole image will darken of course.

Then select the paint brush from your tools palette. Adjust the size of the brush to a cover the height of the line of houses. Ensure the brush is set to white and full softness.

Press control i or command i on a Mac. This will invert the image back to its lighter state. Then brushing over the houses you will see the darker version come through from underneath.

When you are done go to the layers options and flatten image.

A little bit of rough guidance but should get you started on layers Grin

I hope that helps.
