A quick view of dark_lord's recent activity.

    There's no real focal point or anything to hold the viewer's attention for long, though I guess that wasn't the point of the exercise on this occasion.

    It's shown the effect well enough but it's worth being absolutely sure of camera stability on your next outing.

    And different patterns for different habitats/seasons, one can't be caught out...

    Nicely captured.
    I've just warmed up the buildings and reflection selectivley as the white balance is on the cool side.

    The original shot was a good capture and a few tweaks in Lightroom were all that was required.

    However, to introduce a mood or idea it is interesting to play around with effects, though it helps if you do mention that in your description (otherwise we may think you've done something 'wrong'!).

    But any processing or manipulation relies on a good original (which you have, it's never a good idea to think that fancy processing can make a good job of a poor capture).

    You say you weren't sure what you were aiming for. On the one hand that's good as it allows you to experiment and learn what the software has to offer and you may well tumble across something you really like. On the other you could be trying lots of things and not getting anywhere. With practice and experimentation you'll not only work out what sort of thing you want (though maybe not a firm idea of the exact result) you'll know what effects are avialable and the settings to get you there.

    A bit late to this one I'm afraid though I can only concur with what's been said.
    I quite like the scifi look to the processing as it is the sort of aircraft that can take it.
    However, best to have the nose in whether straight or heavily processed.

  • Just had a scan through your portfolio, some really nice images there. I see there are some big gaps between posting, but hey, quality rather than quantity eh!
  • You've a really stunning landscape portfolio here. I thought I'd comment here rather than individual images. I really enjoyed looking.
  • Yo've got a great portfolio here, some lovely bird images. I can even forgive the fact that the squirrels are grey ones as the images are good lol!
