Belevedere at Sunrise (remix)

By joolsb  
I guess it's a courageous decision to upload an 'improved' version of my most clicked shot but here it is, anyway.

I never really liked the unrealistic greens of the original but public opinion thought otherwise. Anyway, I went back to the tranny, rescanned it, cropped it differently and re-balanced the colours. It's now, finally, a good approximation of the slide...

See what you think.

a bit different this version though, as you've left in the sky all in all this has lovely tones and criss cross shadows with layers

I think this version has the edge. This has a natural look to it.

Lovely composition, good high viewpoint, nice criss-crossing in the undulating landscape.
Beautfully soft light across a wonderful composition.
All the best

Nice composition, and the layers of aerial compostion work well. Still wish I could view your stuff in the larger size so I could see what you are really saying.
Oohh! Click No. 30.

to me this is a vast improvement, the layering in the image is wonderfully effective, composition is spot on and good subtle textures, Velvia rules! Smile

This is somewhere i would love to go.I have a print of this scene,taken further to the right,including a line of trees in the fg,with mist on the hills at sunrise.The photographer spent a week there,and finally got his shot on the 6th sunrise!

Thanks for the comments, gang. Much appreciated!

@Hayley: I was in the area for five days and did just the one dawn shoot so I guess I must have been pretty lucky with the weather!
