I liked the way that the side-lit lines in the grass of the mound lead up to the tower, which stands out well against the clear blue sky in the evening light.

Hi Steve,

Well spotted lines which you've used to good effect, well done.

Steve I still thing you can bring out the sun and shadows a touch more. I've posted a mod where I have altered the colour tones before adding some contrast, then erased the alterations from certain parts. I then applied a black gradient to the sky and then selected "soft light" before again erasing the effect from everywhere but the sky. Steve I hope that was not your family or friends at the base of the tower because i'm afraid I removed them as well Grin.

Take care
Martin

Thanks for the mod Martin. It has really added more punch to the image.
Don't worry about removing the people, I thought about it myself but decided against it in the end - so no visit from the family in the night.
I had aleady applied an exposure gradient to the sky in Lightroom but it can definitely handle the extra dose.
I wanted to bring out the sun on the stonework but have lost touch with post-processing a bit.
Thanks for the work that you put into the mod.

Thanks for all of the votes and comments.

Steve
