A bit over exposed for me, probably as much as a stop which has much reduced texture in the clouds and sky. Not too sure about all the twigs sticking in at the bottom either. There is a great shot in there, but I think it looked better to the eye than the camera, and you didn't really study the LCD after shooting.

Paul, thanks for taking the time. You are probably (undoubtedly) right. I'm afraid this was a snatched shot from my jeep - I was taking my daughter to school and we were a little late... reason but not excuse! On the other hand it is straight out of the camera and would certainly benefit from some work.

Hi John,

I guess you already know that this could do with a little help.
It's very blue (obviously!) and there doesn't seem to be much of any other colour in there.
I've uploaded a mod in which I've used curves to adjust the exposure which has given it a little more depth but it is still quite lacking in colour.
A conversion to some form of mono/duo tone perhaps?

Bren.

Its a nice scene John. Makes a nice panorama. I wonder if you used a circular polariser, - would tone down the brightness in the sky.

Anyway, overexposed bright areas, and a slight colour cast.

I think that if you crop more off the top, for a tru panorama, and adjust the black and white points, you can get a better looking shot. Cropping down removes some of the problematic sky, and setting black and white points changes the colour cast a little.


Ive uploaded a mod to show what i mean. Bren suggested a duo tone, and Ive uploaded one, - it works for me.


regards
