Lake,Mountain &Cloud. by Beladd

Lake,Mountain &Cloud.

Thanks Cath,

I hope I am not sounding stupid, but what is magenta cast, what causes it. The shot was captured with a lot of front light; I was passing this spot when driving. I would have preferred a better light source but when you are touring you take what you get when passing a scene like this. Thanks for taking the time to view and comment....Thanks for the great Mod which was very enlightening ..................Paddy

PS Thanks Pamela to.

The Lakes of Killarney

Thanks Willie,

Thanks for the Mod and advise on compo. I like your mod "more water" . I will keep that in mind. I was lucky enough to get 2 dry days in Killarney and also a capture of a deer in the mountains which I have posted on photozine previous to this capture.

Kerry Mountain Deer

I was out shooting Landscape in Killarney CO Kerry and she popped up for a few seconds in front of me. I switched the camera settings quickly to Auto for sport and snapped away. I never saw a deer as close before in the wild..........Paddy.

Great colour contrast in sky and also caught with the motion of the water, Horizon to central, try it with a crop to the upper sky and just leave a hint of that dark upper cloud,....................rgds...paddy

Wentworth Woodhouse Mausoleum by Jodyw17

Wentworth Woodhouse Mausoleum

Nice perspective and HDR effect on this one Jody. I can visualise what you were after but lens distort has caused you a problem with towers looking like the are falling inwards Try this in photo shop to correct.

Click on key Ctrl and A to select whole image……….
Click on Key Ctrl and T…
Hold down on key Ctrl and at the Same time move your censor to whatever corner of the image you wish to distort……And pull and drag into position……….
When you are happy that the image looks OK… Release Cltr and hit ENTER......................................Regards Paddy

ROOOOOK by saeidNL


Nice capture Saeid of this interesting looking character. It makes me wonder what his life tale is. Nice use of Mono and rear light catching the brilliance of his white long hair. I would love to see a portrait crop of this without the invasion of bicycle in setting and a stronger blur /clone out of wire rail. Keep up the good work

Kind regards.............Paddy.

The Park by trihelm

last light Bamburgh by HeatherMC

last light Bamburgh

Hi Heather, You have an eye-catching gallery as with this shot. My only criticism is that most of your shots have the horizon line smack bang in the middle, which lessens the impact on the majority of landscape shots. Some rules work, some rules work when broken. Experiment with both

Black Rock cottage

Heather, Nice picture, you have probably cropped the FG for whatever reason. I would like to see the horizon line not as central with a bit more FG length & detail and a hint on the right of that truck supporting that bush which would frame the photo better. ,,,,,,,,,,rgds paddy

Nice shot, I like the red house as the point of interest.

Rodeo X by steve_evans

Rodeo X

Great action shot, your man in the BG seems to be getting a good laugh out of it, He must be on the opposing team of Rodeors and seems glad that the rider has hit the dirt

Glendineoregan Waterfall by Beladd

Glendineoregan Waterfall

Thanks all, The X/X lines are falling trees. This ("Glendine" or translated to English is "deep glen") reminds of boiling milk in a pot ready to spill over. Landslides occur in this glen after heavy rain .It was Scary down in the depths of it, with fresh slides all around and one blocking the normal route.

Little Bro by Philo

Little Bro

Hi Phil,
You have obviously captured for your self a unique shot of your brother, unaware and casual, nice one to have.
I usually convert to B&W by channel mixer> click monochrome box> and just use the red channel to convert> (Don’t despair or look for perfection yet ) just click ok and go back to Image Adjustments > and play around with Levels> Curves> and Brightness/Contrast, this normally gives me the best results.

Thatched Irish Mountain Cottage by Beladd

Thatched Irish Mountain Cottage

Thanks All,
I have painted for years in this style and I am slowly learning the mechanics of photoshop regarding everything from blending, etc, etc; I am finding the palette of photoshop that bit more challenging than the real thing. But I must say this comes close to how I would have painted it, call me old fashioned, is there room for this type of Art Photo work out there or have I missed the boat.

Kind regs Pad.

Brandelhow by MeanGreeny


A good B&W Paul, vast contrast in the sky with light and shade on the hills. Try a crop on the water foreground, for me it is too unceremonious and invasive and distracts from the great cloud configuration and hillscape.Other wise very eye catching and worth a vote and comment

sheep skull by HuntedDragon

sheep skull

Great shot Alan, good low angle. May I be so kind and with respect to suggest that, a slight upper twig on saturation and contrast might improve this image.

The Back Streets of  Manchester by johnriley1uk

The Back Streets of Manchester

Great shot John, it portrays the cold and filth of back streets that can be found everywhere. Suburban dumping grounds. I like the atmosphere of this shot but just one comment that applies to all Suburban landscape, Your horizon line even though it’s a short depth of field needs to be straighten. Use the top of the gate as a guideline to correct it.

I like the rain drops on the lake and the chrome peaceful tone to the shot,With that fella waiting in anticipation of a major catch.

Nice scrounging effect with surround on this lovely dog. Anyone know what breed is it ?

Castletown Mill. by Beladd

Castletown Mill.

Thank you all for your votes and comments. Fedupness and the need to get out brought me to this spot even though the day was dull and over-cast but the river was high and the weir was singing with all the heavy rain we have had in the last few days. I learnt a lesson today, don’t be just a sun shine photographer, get out when you feel the need to.
kind regards Paddy.
