Now this is one amazing water mill Lee - a combination like I have never seen yet Excellent photo !!
Nice one, the sort you really want to paint.
To play around in Topaz or Smart Photo Editor with this one
would be fun to say the least....
belting comp Lee wonderful colour and light super detail a cracker nice one
a beautiful scene captured very well, rool on summer
Superb rich image
Nice combination of colours Lee and a vibrant sky.
Stunning image and well captured
I would have opted for a square crop with this for a more dramatic picture - the top part of the sky is a bit too dark for my liking, though you get the vote regardless as this has got potential for sure. Would have gladly uploaded a mod if you had turned Modifications on!
A lovely scene, like the low horizon to give a big sky.
Thanks for the mod Andy.
I like the comp on the square format, but for me the looming raincloud is a big part of the image and without it the intense light on the mill and dark water doesn't make as much sense if you see what I mean. (The sky really was that dark BTW, there was no grad filter, my soon to be drenched camera bag would agree!).
I think to crop out the cloud Id need to also crop out the bottom water up to near the reeds, otherwise its quite bottom heavy.
It's all about opinions though, so appreciate the opinions!
I can see where you're coming from and agree with your comments too.
I had a different thought on my mind and cropped with the idea of showing less of the dark sky in fact, as I wasn't aware you specifically intended to include the dark clouds in the shot. What one can do to address your comments and still retain a square crop is to crop from a higher position and show the dark clouds regardless on top, but not in the quantity shown in the original upload. This would also address your concern that the image is bottom-heavy. Could work just as well I think.
Nonetheless, it's just as you said, it's all opinions and I like both the crop and the original upload.
Thats a good solution, best of both worlds!
I like the scene, very attractive. The white balance though is way off, and is much too cool. A warmer white balance solves a lot of issues, making the cloud less blue and therefore less ominous, but still ominous.
When looking at composition and cropping, keep in mind is you intend to print, what you would keep, and what would be cropped.
In the mod, - apart from white balance, I used an 8 X 10 aspect ratio as a guide to crop. I would have preferred the windmill in a little further from the edge, but the overall image is still very good.
And get back to work Alistair!
Hope this helps,
Thanks Willie, didn't realise the white balance was someway off until I saw your mod, makes a real difference. Will bear that in mind for future images
Woops... Willie, thank God you're not my superior.
Love your mod!
This brings back memories of school trips to How Hill, oh dear i'm really showing my age a lovely shot,
If you can remember school Ali you're not too old!
A great shot with lots of option's.
Wonderful image Lee, How could anyone not like a print of it on there wall. Love it.
great for magazine cover
It's a lovely shot but commenting this late on it's interesting to read the above comments and view the Mods, Lee.
I can't add anything further of use.
Thank you for the comments, voters, mods and advice. Picked up some valuable tips today, so much appreciated
Great colour and detail, excellent image.
I like it as is. Brilliant shot!
