Rydal Cave.

By Alex64
This is two photographs merged together, the first I exposed for outside the cave entrance, and the second from inside the cave. Using Lightroom, I increased the exposure, and enhanced the colours of the rock walls, but what you see is what you find inside the cave.

Sadly I find it all over too light, there are no shadows or highlights inside, the nearest to highlight is the part outside wit the trees.

Hope this helps somehow.

You certainly put a lot of thought into this.

I hope that you have another go at this because the composition is very good, leading the eye out of the cave.

I really think it's worth the effort.

I tried this technique some time back and it does take a lot of effort and trial and error, but when you find the Holy Grail; you will be well rewarded.

Dear Alex64
Scottishlandscapes is right.
The caves are dark and overexposing excessively means eliminating the whole atmosphere and the magic of darkness.

The composition is very good and it's worth going back and redoing everything ...
