beautiful shot really well composed. I think i would up the contrast a tad in the bottom third(or drop it in the upper) of the shot as i doesnt seem to match the top half probably due to the use of the grad filter

This is better than the previous version but still looks a little flat on the foreground. Lightened for printing you say. Why would you do that? The image should print to paper perfectly well if the on screen image is correct. This is potentially a very nice scene compositionally, but something is not quite right in the foreground and I'm not sure what you are doing.

Hi Ian
This is a really nice image but the very desaturated foreground is spoiling and otherwise good image. I agree with Paul if your monitor is set correctly then you really do not need to "lighten" for printing conversely if you still print wrong then you should adjust the printer settings for your image.

In my mod I've added saturation to the foreground by free selecting the area thus maintaining the sky and the distant Roseberry Top. Apart from the saturation the rest looks good with the levels being OK and the exposure looking good.

Let me know what you think of the mod.

I'm not really sure why the foreground here looks so washed out.
The histogram just about reaches the RHS and peaks most of the way across the centre, so presumably the exposure's about correct.
Could it be that using a grad has caused the top to expose correctly, leaving the rest behind? In other words, without the grad, I'm assuming that the entire image would be like the foreground.
Anyway, it's retrievable, probably more so with your original. I simply used an 'S' curve to breathe some life into the entire image. Ideally, you'd want to select only as much of the foreground as you think you need to.
I also cropped it to a square, removing much of the foreground anyway.
I'm not suggesting it's better, it's just an idea.
Hope this helps.

Bren.

Edit. I also converted it to sRGB.

I am going to have another go at this shot, the image is much much better in print. Will update soon as I am entering it in a competition.
Thanks again for the comments.
