East Lyn

By Arvorphoto    
Yesterday I had a quick visit to Watersmeet near Lynmouth to recce possible autumn compositions. The waters of the East Lyn River were flowing quite quickly after the recent rain.
Having walked downstream for a short way, I was returning back up the footpath by the river looking for possible spots, when I noticed some exposed river bed pebbles and a few rocks that could be a possible vantage point.


Processing: Lightroom/Photoshop

Beautiful image.
As youíve asked for critique.
I must first mention Iím no landscape photographer, as you would no doubt agree if you saw my portfolio, wildlife is my passion and I think it shows.
I love the soft water and tones within the river itself. However I do keep getting drawn to the bright green moss on the central rock.
You mentioned the pebbles but I needed to search a little to find them.
Youíve probably already dodged and burned highlights and shadows in the water but maybe lift the pebbles and reduce the moss a little, or maybe try to saturate the green in the trees to normalise the rock.
Also youíve got some lovely autumn colours on the left bank that you might be able to punch up a little more.
Again I already love the shot.
Just my own thoughts.

Thanks Tim. It's always interesting to have a different viewpoint.
I may well revisit this image and adjust the mossy bit certainly.

As for the pebbles, the ones I was referring to in the text were where my feet and camera bag were LOL but the camera did manage to capture those others in the shallows.
