Path to Lanty Tarn

By AndyD999
I recently took a trip to the Lake District. I am ashamed to say that it is the first time i have ever been and i have to say i will be going back! Despite the weather not being the best and the leaves on the trees already starting to fall the scenery and views were breath taking. This is one of my favourite pictures from the short break. Taken on the walk up to Lanty Tarn and looking back at Glenriding. Due to the fact that we were going out for a walk it had to hand hold the camera. I used f10 at 1/160. I enhanced the picture ever so slightly in Photoshop and also tweaked the sky to make it a little bit more dramatic.

Well composed but for me there isn't enough contrast.

A beautiful scene and so very well composed too. My omly niggle is the slight over exposure top right and as said above a touch more contrast is needed.

I have added a mod which is no more than a darkening of the top and bottom areas and added contrast to the centere section before cloning in some of the cloud left to mask the top corner.

It's an image I'd be happy to have taken, good work !

Beautiful scene, good camera settings. Just a little flat, - lcaking in contrast which really brings it to like. Look at the histogram in levels and drag the left slider in towards the graph. There is no area of the image overexposed, so samsalt, could be your monitor is too bright? You can only judge overexposure in Photoshop by looking at the histogram, - this eliminates monitor differences.

That path on the left has an unfortunate twist, leading in, then right out of the image. I tried it without the path, but it works better with it.

Mod upload, - I used different contrast settings for near, middle and far, so a little more involved.

Hope this helps,

I rather like the composition here but it is just a touch flat and needs a touch of added contrast to give the tones a boost.
