Stourhead (again!)

By debster  
Will try and make this my last one - I'm sure you're all getting bored of them now! Weather looks promising for the weekend so hopefully new opportunities await.

I've lots more of beautiful scenery (as no doubt has everyone else!) so I've chosen one of my favourites to end with. I particularly liked the clouds in this one and the light falling on the lake.

As always, comments would be gratefully received. Thanks for looking - have a good weekend everyone.

It's a cracker to end on - several shots in this one picture alone.

Beautiful shot. Wonderful viewpoint with the lake and the distant clouds over the hills. Love the variety of tones and the reflections with the slight distortions given by the rippled water.

Lovely shot! Kind of like mine from yesterday - only better!

You could try taking a look at the colour balance as, to my eyes at least, it has a slightly cold feel to it, probably as a result of too much blue overall.

Thank you everyone for your very kind comments. It really is a lovely place to visit - I think we're planning another Dorset meet there in Autumn when there's lots of colour to the trees.

Thanks again,

Now that I look at this one vs. the other one, I can see that this is a nice improvement. The sky has must more detail and the rest of the scene has more contrast, but not too much. There just seems to be more to see in this one. And I like the wider angle view also. Have a good weekend!

Hi Debbie a great one to end with and I agree the reflections are great- I am a bit of a fan of watery reflections.
I agree with Jools re maybe warming it up a bit.

Hi Debbie

This looks like you maybe had a go with PS CS? It looks good, but I tend to agree with Julian about the blue cast. It may just be mine and Julian's screens of course...

Cracking sharpness and detail :o)

How did I miss this one? I love that sky, it's almost 3D!

Not sure about this one at first as the sky looks a bit out of place but the more I look at the more I like it and the clouds and sky are great although I feel the main body of the picture does feel cold especially eith the deep blue sky
