A very subtle BW conversion. Not too contrasty and in keeping with the softness of the mist rolling between the hills. A very pleasing layered effect too.

What's that bright object to the right of the tree bottom centre?

Thanks Chant. Dave - Having checked the original it looks as though it's a stack of those oh so beautiful bright greeeeeeeen round bales! I'll do a clean up job on the original as it's obviously distracting.
Thanks for commenting.

Just dodge and burn the bales a bit - no need to remove them.

Lovely shot though.

Thanks guys.
Westers - I've done a clone, heal, dodge, burn and headscratch job on it and it looks ok.
Dave - The colour version is a tad on the bland side and will probably need more time than I've got at the mo' to get sommat reasonable out of it. A job for an evening after a couple of ales, perhaps.

Very nice ! As stated previously its good that you didn't go mad with contrast on this. It conveys the misty feel just right.
29 Mar 2007 1:27PM
Lovely misty image, should get plenty of clicks !

I love this one. However, the tree in the foreground has a very dark base, and I found my eye being constantly drawn to it. Is there a way to lighten the base of the tree slightly? I apologise if this was the intention and I've got it wrong! Smile
It's a beaut anyway

Thanks very much people.
Tim - There is something distracting about that tree. I may try and get rid of the b*gger all togetherWink

Great image, absolutely love the way you have captured the mist between each successive line of trees.

David, this is a lovely image. It looks perfect to me as it is and conveys the message that I believe you wanted it to. Please don't sacrifice it to the gross over-photoshopping that seems to be trendy at the moment.
PS Thank you for adding the background information - very interesting!

Lovely Dave, well converted and some great depth to it.

Well, thank you very much for your kind words!

Jane - I'm in two minds about the colour version (niether of them completely stable).

I think the individual trees punctuating the layering have a big part to play.
In reality, all I had to do was turn up at the right time and press the shutter button. Mother did the hard work.
