An old stable in Bishop's castle, Shropshire.
I'm trying to collect interesting images of my home county, Shropshire.
I'b be interested to see if my image editing is ok and what someone else would do with it.
I have recently changed over to a mac and find that everything is a little darker on screen at the default settings. I'm used to it now, but some of my old portfolio images look too dark to me.
I'm reluctant to change things by re-calibrating as my prints come out really well.
Does this print look ok or is it too light or dark to you?

Sky darkened in layers with multiply.
Elder tree dodged a little.
Tiles and door of building burned in a little.
Distracting shadow in foreground cloned out.

Thank you for looking,
