Hi everybody,
Happy New Year to you all. I hope you have had a good Christmas and are coping well with the weather.
The medics have decided that I must give up my precvious lifestyle and retrain - I think that I can make my way by developing my photographic skills and going professional. As such, I am very keen to recieve all the c+c that I can get so please be honest and if you don't like something - say so and why. If you can give me help with my processing it would also be much appreciated.
Thanks very much.

Some nice light about but overall I think the image just needs a little lift.It is not to see on my monitor what materials the house is built from but this may just be my monitor.

Thanks Danny. I've put up a v3 where I have adjusted the curves, sharpened a little more and adjusted the contrast slightly. I'm not sure that its much better but....

hello, james

i've played a little with the exposure too, tried to bring up the material the house was built of and make the photo a little lighter. it was basically a matter of selective exposure adjustment: increased some tone bands, darkened a little others and also enhanced a little the colours: a bit more red, to highlight the light spot on the alley, which i loved for the natural tone it adds to the image. i don't really like the excessive sharpening so i left it as it was, i don't see it as an image which needs pin-sharp elements; it it sharp enough overall.

hope this helps Smile
kind regards
