i continue to experiment with mono conversions in LR, this one of a beach in brittany; i have used settings in camera calibration here

have tried to highlight detail in sand and worked on local adjustments on stones, added a slight vignette to corners

advice/help/suggestions please

Looks pretty good to me, you could crop the right a little and that would pull the boulder to the right a bit. The conversion looks good.

Goergeous capture, with nice composition and dramatic sky.

Judging by the standard of this image ... you don't need my advice!

Excellent in every way

If you could have taken a couple of paces to your left, then composed the foreground rock more to the right as Dougie says you would have had more of a diagonal between the foreground and middle ground. Conversion looks good, dodging and burning would add more drama to the image. I would use a soft brush dodging highlights about 6-7% strength and burning the shadows again about 6-7%. Work on a seperate layer then you can turn it on and off to see the effects, also easy delete if your not happy.


Hope that helps,

Chris
