i like the atmosphere. your tower is leaning to the right so i dont think youve got your pic horizontal easy to correct in PS.lesley

Lovely feel to this and a wonderful exposure. I agree with cassiecat re: the horizon. This can be difficult to tell on images where the horizon naturally slopes, but in this case the church is your reference point - see how the tower is leaning slightly from left to right? Oddly, verticals can help correct your horizon line, but be cautious using this technique with super wide lenses when the verticals are to the edge of the frame, and remember some verticals are not meant to be true...

A very nice shot.

Contrast is a little low due to the mist, and you already know the church is not straight. Ive loaded a mod with a few tweaks you might like.

The blue toned snow, bugged me so I I done a selective hue adjustment.
also added a bit more contrast and colour. See mod.

Sorry Steve, should have given you more details.

Apart from making the church vertical:

I increased contrast using the curves tool in CS4. I do this by identifying the beginning of white and black using the Threshold tool, and then use curves. This gave quite a dramatic contrast improvement.

Secondly, I increased the canvas size vertically, and used the extra canvas space to clone in more sky, thus lowering the church by the same amount. Final tweak was a slight sharpen.

Thats it, - glad you like it,



Regards

A nice image. Correct the verticals and a slight bottom crop - otherwise I like it.
