Immediately said Dungeness to me. I think it's pretty well seen with the other hut on the diagonal, and the sky is promising. I have two issues with it though, both probably both down to your conversion - it is very noisy, with masses of what looks like colour noise in the paint on the shed, and there is a very distinct halo around the shed. Did you dramatically lighten the shed area? I would suggest converting to black and white, and lightening a lot more selectively, then putting a film grain layer on to hide what remains of the noise a bit. Or some programs like Photoshop do have grain reduction facilities and you can reduce colour (chroma) noise without mon (luminance) noise so you don't lose too much detail.

Can you tell us if you have used Photomatix or another HDR process on this?


Thanks

I wondered about Photomatix or Topaz too, though I would have thought you'd get more micro contrast detail on the hut with these. Would be very interested to know if you used them!

Whilst the composition is rather better than the earlier version, your processing is somewhat unbalanced. There is a definite light banded area round the shed which looks wrong to me. I suspect this is by either burning in or dodging, but you must be more accurate. Best to select the sky area, then do the burning in right up to the shed, which would be protected by the selection.

It would be helpful, Roger, if you could give a short response to these comments just so that we know we are pitching them at the right level and providing you with the sort of feedback that you require.
Several people have posted quite detailed comments on your past uploads, but have not heard back from you. A comment or two from you makes it easier to provide you with a valid critique, which should then tend to cover the areas that you are hoping to improve upon.

Hello, there is something strange going on here and maybe explained by the -4.0 exposure compensation. Is that four stops? To avoid blinkies perhaps? With contrast ranges like that and with an uneven subject (roof sloping two ways) you need to blend at least 2 or maybe even 3 different exposures. Or avoid the sky altogether and go in for details. Another thought is to convert to black and white and have a deliberate vignette round the whole shed.
