Its a great view, know it well, the only thing to watch out for is the halo's created by the sun hitting the lens from on the right, if you havent got a lens hood one way to block these out is by using your hand, just make sure you don't get it in the photo as well though Smile

I think this is a good attempt, but there are a couple things I'd change: I agree with Neil about the halos. The sky is also slightly burnt out on the right and the colours in it seem a little odd (is this perhaps where your manipulation was?). An ND Grad over the sky, or 2 exposures (1 for the land, 1 for the sky) merged in PS may solve that... Hope that helps!

ND Grad... not used one before, perhaps next on the purchase list. I kinda went to town with the burn tool as the image was quite flat in its orignial state (due to lack of nd grad?). Might ease off on it next time.

Thanks for the comments, much appreciated.
