South Gare 2

By pdove  
One of the last images from Paddy's Hole at the South Gare, River Tees Estuary as the sun had gone. Needed a lift in Capture One to get the shadows back.
Thanks for C&C on previous upload.
Would be interested in constructive comment on this one as I have it as a possible competition entry for later in the year.
Regards, Phil

Hi Phil, lovely image. Colour and detail are spot on.
Good luck with the competition, I do have a few constructive comments for you to consider:

1. I don't know whether it's my monitor, but the cloud appears to have an almost halo effect, this could be from processing when recovering the shadow detail or sharpening, it's been pushed a little too much (in the sky at least). Try masking the sky when sharpening and recovering the shadows.

2. Around the jetty posts you seem to have some fringing (chromatic aberration) easily resolved in processing.

The next bit is a personal preference so not to everyones taste......

3. Square crop ? Looks quite nice in square format allows the jetty to make more of an impact by lowering it in the frame. Trade up is you lose a little of the reflections at the bottom, but not so much you lose all of the cloud reflection (just up to where the colour starts). Also you will lose a little of the cloud in the sky, but nothing that affects the impact of the image.

You would have been better putting this into the critique gallery rather than the main voting gallery, you would get some good advice from there and allows people to show you via the modifications tab.

I hope this is of use to you.

Best regards,
