Not posted on here for a while, baby and lack of time stopped play
But recent trip to Loch Lomond, so thought I would take advantage of the lovely weather up there and get up early while the little one was feeding and try and get some early morning long exposures...
Now, I don't have any ND filters to increase exposure times and so on, so had to get up before sunrise to allow me to have as "little" light as possible to make sure the exposures were 30+ secs......
But, as you will see, I think I have gone about this all wrong somehow and the results weren't as I was hoping....
This is one of my very first REAL attempts at long exposure landscapes and frankly, a bit disappointed to be honest. White balance was a nightmare, I couldn't seem to get the exposure correct, its not as "sharp" as I would like it....there are so many things I am not happy about.
It has had minimal work with curves, levels, cropping, sharpening and so on, so what you are seeing isn't far off whats straight out of the camera.
I would like to know peoples opinions....I realise this isn't anywhere NEAR the calibre of some of the togs on here who do this on a regular basis and as my PS skills are also fairly minimal, I have done the best I can.
But ideas, thoughts, advice all welcome. Please don't rip me apart. I already know and can see its shortcomings (and the others in this set), just be gentle and pass advice
