My first proper photography day out since my operation 10 weeks ago. The weather was beautiful and we went to the Yorkshire Dales. Today my tummy is quite sore from the activity and I've got a sunburnt face and legs...............but I don't care a jot - I was out with my camera! Planning to get a few more of these days in before I have to go, kicking and screaming, back to work in a few weeks time.

Anyway, It's quite frustrating in the Yorkshire Dales when you are unable to walk too far as, when you're driving around, you see some wonderful scenes but are unable to park the car to get the shot. I took this one from a small lay-by.

I included the branches of the tree as I thought it would frame the barn within the patchwork fields.

I'd appreciate any constructive critique. I've uploaded the original too.

Thanks for looking.

I like the mod, and I miss India!


The original is almost a full stop underexposed, and working with the original, Ive come up with a mod thats very close to what youve done. The underexposure can be caught at the time of shooting, checking the histogram after the shot, and taking a second with exposure compensation.


Regards


Willie

Thanks Willie.......yes, I need to get into the habit of checking the histogram and/or bracketing shots. Thanks for your mod.

Back to India tomorrow!

Cheers

Nice scene but I've found India very interesting too.
Glad you are out and about now.
I think you should see this image as practice for a great future series of images from Swaledale and Wenslydale. All those stone walls and field barns are waiting for your lens. .
Lots of the classic Dales shots don't have much sky and will be easier to expose for. Here as you probably know the sky fooled the camera into underexposing. Not that it really mattered too much as you shot in RAW.
I can think of a few locations in Upper Swale Dale that would not require walking very far,
Have a look here: http://www.mcfade.co.uk/blog/ , this man posts on ePhotozine and took this series of photos on a drive throught the Dales
Happy snapping
Ian

Hi Ian,

Thanks for the link.........Ade's shots are great, and very inspiring. After seeing his shots I'm definitely going to have another day out in the Yorkshire Dales........also planning a day (or two) in the Lake District - it's only 1 hour to Windermere from Blackpool.

I've still got a few India shots to upload too.

Thanks Ian.

Cheers
