The conditions were bad Wajid, but it looks like the scene was a good one.

The image is flat and lacks contrast, and as you mention has a little noise. With some Photoshop work you can make it into a decent shot, as in the mod. Ive reduced noise using Noise Ninja; cropped to remove a lot of the foreground, and increased contrast, saturation and applied a warming filter.


I hope this is helpful,



regards

Love the way the sun is trying to come through, and is that mist in the background? Very atmospheric. banehawa did a good mod there for you - you're smart to get critiques on your work so you can progress.

hi,
a great atmospheric scene but it looks as if the taking stage was very difficult to control.

firstly i would have suggested using either a nd grad filter to help balance things out a little better and give some detail in the fg, or if you did already, then at least 3 more stops.

id usually say look for a reasonably interesting piece of fg interest but i see that it wast available so you needed to make the best of what you had. you need to have the focus much closer using a small aperature so that the foreground to distance was fully sharp.

as willy says its lacking any real contrast so i fully agree with him, crop away the uninteresting base, and do a curves adjustment to increase both saturation and contrast, run some noise removal (possibly a little surface blur in one of the channels that seem most affected by the noise) and i think you will have a stronger image.

regards
Phil
