Hot Chocolate

By NDODS    
Dear all I have been trying to upload this chilly landscape for over a week now, and now I have finally managed, "I just hope that it was worth all the effort?"

I had a rather pants day following my visit to the Optician, but I am trying to remain positive...

Thank you all for your wonderful comments following yesterdays upload "Sole Destroyed", it is very refreshing to know that such a discarded object could attract so much attention.

Today I shill be spending my day in doors, trying to shake off yesterdays shenanigans, whilst a view and comment on your great work.

I wish you all have a great day ahead.

Regards as always

Nathan

Tonally this is just very flat. It needed one stop less grad (if used) when shooting and the levels sorting out in post-production. You can choose to ignore this advise by all means but it will improve your work.

Brrr! but despite the bleakness, rather beautiful too. Bitterly cold wind here, Reckon I won't argue with that staying indoors idea!!

Well worth the effort indeed, Nathan: a very moody scene captured in relatively low light and soft colours.
Keep well.

If your weather's anything like here, you're best staying indoors! It's fine, but it's a very chilly and blustery wind....Sad

Who would fancy to be there at night? A terrifying notion. Looks like a freezing cold and wet wasteland portrayed so well, Nathan.

Version 2 has improved it but I'd be inclined to go a touch further and even add a tonal S curve that would just give those white clouds a boost.

Perfect title Nathan, I'll drink to that.
