Nice shot. The foreground is a little underexposed due to the bright sky, and looks better if the exposure is lifted a little around where the bridge is as in the mod.

Hope you like the mod, and you find this constructive.

I think a mono would suit this image as it's almost a black and white already.

Thank you both, much appreciated.
I've never played with B&W (although it's something I will have a go at) and I'd assumed there weren't enough shadows to do a decent conversion in this image.

I do like the B&W mods a lot though, they seem to give it some depth. I like the colour one too but think the B&W's have it licked.

Thanks again,

Nice shot in deed! The only improvement would help is I think bringing the details back in to light and brighttened the image within the reason, which will give better look! to do that what I did is.... I open it in to photoshop and then duplicate layer by Control/Command +J, now click on Image > Adjustments > Shadows/Highlights and then alter all figures as follow starting from the top 35, 50, 78, 0, 50, 30, +3 and +10 you can see difference by clicking preview. To finish it off click Filter > Sharpen > Unsharp mask and then alter Amount to 26, radius to 77 and Threshold 3, now you can flatten image by holding Shift plus Command/Control and E and then save image as "Save as" by giving new name to leave original intact.
Hope this comes handy.

Thanks Harry, this post-processing is a real Black art to me at the moment!
