A nice shot. Would be perfect if there were not those human things on the horizon. The trees are nice, and the picture as a whole good! Perhaps some manipulation, if your up for it, could greatly improve this! (using a cloner)

I agree with Ben. Not to take anything away from this one. It is original and a very nice shot.

Thanks guys, this is one of my favourites, yes i agree, it is a shame about the Man made objects on the horizon, i might tweak it tonight.

Thanks John,
I dont know if youve ever tried to change the exposure on a Point and Shoot, on the camera i took this with, you cant, the closest thing is the pre-sets for white balance, i found i could trick it by taking pointing the camera at a lighter area of the same distance, getting it to focus, then turning back and taking the shot, bloody tricky but it worked most of the time. Anyway, thats my little rant lol, no longer a problem now that my shiney new 350d are on the way :o)

Hi Charlie, and welcome to the site!

I have to agree with great sky and foreground silhouette which draws you straight into the composition. I didn't actually notice the various objects at first till they were pointed out!

I don't know much about the technical side of photography, but I do know what I like - and this certainly caught my eye. It captures the mood of the place superbly (not that I've been there though!). The lighter area of sky acts as a very effective contrast in this piece. I also love the different bluey shades in the sky, which add another great effect to this image.

You've certainly got off to a great start which all your shots so far. I'm impressed.

Best wishes,

This is a nice shot, Charlie. Lots of advice on it too. will you be doing a repost? it's always interesting to see, although I have to admit to taking my shots off on the same day and re posting them with the relevant advice taken.
It's a great way to learn Smile
