Ferry 'cross the Mersey

By salopian
I was fascinated by the busy ferries and their loads of colourful passengers and couldn't resist this one. It was a strange sky that day - partly overcast with a few puffy cumulus mixed in and I don't think it has come out too well here. Any ideas how I could improve it?

A great shot of the ferry, as you have said the sky is a little burnt out. Your camera can shoot in raw which will always give a much better chance to recover a burnt out sky etc. Failing that cheat like I have with a mod.Smile

I agree with Ivor, lovely shot but I actually find the whole image slightly over exposed so have toned down the highlights as well as the sky in my mod Smile

A perfectly good record. Compositionally I prefer boats other than side ways on usually. They look stronger and more impressive with a bit of recession. Obviously not possible.

Crikey Ivor, your mod is brilliant - looks like you have dropped in a new sky and it improves the image 100% - cheating at it's best!!!
