    The pic isn't digitally manipulated as such - it was taken in RAW and during post-processing (using ViewNX), among other adjustments such as exposure, contrast etc, I changed the white balance to add the green tint for artistic reasons.

    Not much to add, bar trying it in black and white.

    It's not bad but it is a little bland - I would make two changes;

    1. Ramp up the contrast. This is a rather flat image with little colour, upping the contrast would help make details stand out a bit more and make the image "pop"

    2. Either make it black and white or else ramp up the colours. As there is little colour in the shot, you could consider converting it to black and white. Alternatively, if you increase the saturation, you may find hitherto hidden colour tones jump out and really liven the shot up. See which works best.

    Thanks for the comments. This shot was done using water, a roasting tin, a piece of string, a food bag, two clothes pegs, a tripod and an off-camera flashgun Smile

  • Can you see me?

    I'm still amazed this shot came out relatively noiseless at ISO2500, and with all the internal noise reduction switched off.

  • Test!

    The biggest problem here is the three bits of stuff in the corners which lead the eye out to the edge of the picture and away from the subjects. I would have cropped them out.

    Then your sunball has either caused lens flare or else you've got several bits of dust on your lens as you've got several "circles of confusion" dotted around it. The clouds probably aren't enough of an interest point to carry this image either I'm afraid. I would re-take with a better cloud formation.
