Welcome to EPZ Tracy. This is quite a decent shot from the S5.

The camera was facing a bright scene, with the sky and water and reflections, so as all cameras do, phone or dedicated, it will respond to the brightness by underexposing.

This causes the subject part of the scene to be darker than it should be, in order to keep the sky froma washing out.

If the camera has some controls, you would usually make it overexpose, to compensate, and the result could be closer to the modiciation (#2) Ive uploaded.

To see mods, click the modifications button under your image, and then you can see the numbers of mods, clicking each number shows you what has been uploaded.

Have fun

Warm dawn or dusk light is the friend of old British stonework like this. Choosing the good light time of day will make this come to life. TG

Welcome to EPZ Tracy. I tried a crop to isolate the building and river on the left, and increased saturation , and brought out the shadows a little. Not sure about the crop....the branches on the right also give a nice visual context.

I look forward to seeing more photos from you.

Hi Tracy and what a great shot of a scene I have taken a few times myself. Also part of the castle a lot of people never walk around the back to see.

The shot itself is really good and only needed very few adjustments like most pictures do. I have tried to brighten, bring out a little more detail and warmed the image up a little. As I say very minor touches.

I am you are really looking forward to your new DLSR and remember it takes a little time to get use to it. Take each bit at a time to learn what it does and how to use it. These steps will last you a lifetime. Good luck...
