Stanage Heather

By Briwooly
4th image from the trip to Stanage Edge in the Derbyshire Peak district with youngwooly. To see if we could get a bit of the late light over the Hope valley, so here is my 4th effort.

Tech stuff:- HDR made from 3 shots one at 1/13 and the second at 1/16th and the third at 1/3th aperture F13 ISO 100 lens at 23mm

As always thanks for all your comments and clicks on my previous efforts.

Off away for a little bit of R&R at the weekend so will catch up when I get back Brian.............................

That's quite magical, the beautiful rays dripping gold on the right, and the heather providing more lovely colour.

Very nice capture!!! Great sky and very good composition. Just in my opinion foreground could benefit from little bit burning to get there a touch of shadows and black tones. Great shot overall.

Lovely picture Brian. Just a thought, but perhaps it could do with a little more contrast in the foreground. I've uploaded a version where I have isolated the sky from the rest of the picture and then increased the brightness by 25% and contrast by 27% = perhaps a bit muchbut hopefully illustrates my thinking.

Hope you don't mind my commenting,
