I'm drawn to version 3 although they're all good.

Four extremely good variants. For me the image which stands out from the is image number three just like Ken and Hunter. Superbly processed the two two processing adding that little touch of "Jena sa qua"

My favourite is V1. I will start with the slight negatives first, be careful with the sharpening as I think you have (only slightly) overdone it. Secondly, I don't know if it is me but the image tilts a little from left to right and could do with straightening so the bridge is horizontal. Now for the positives, the composition is very good with some excellent lead in lines. The colour tones are also excellent and you haven't fell into the trap of over saturating the image so you have kept the image looking natural. This is the best landscape image you have done so far and I think I am going to have to visit this location as it looks quite promising.Grin
One more question? Did you use them filters for the sky? The exposure is spot onSmile

Spot on Ryan, on all but one accounts. i did not use any sharpening tools at all. but i did layer about 12 exposures that gave me the sharp detail. although i did de-grain a little bit. yes the image is slight tilt to the right but. the bridge is actually bowed and the far left of the bridge (visible) is actually the top (apex) thats why it looks tilted a bit and yes i did use the filters there awesome lol.BlushTongueGrinGrin

i took the photo near the lock at the foot of the walking bridge lighting was not good at all but it was a lovely walk as you say i did see many Herons further down the river by the flood lakes. i will be doing this walk again soon.GrinGrinGrin

V2 the straight mono is my favourite, followed by V3.
The advice re straightening is something i would have mentioned too. Smile

Its a nice shot.

The image is not tilted in the slightest, having downloaded it and checked verticals.

There are a couple of visual cues that might give the impression; one is that the tower close to the centre has a curved side, - thats how its built; the bridge isnt level, and apart from the explanation, if its not precisely the same distance from the lens at both ends, it will appear crooked, because one end is closer to the lens that the other, - this is normal; the front left side of the river (?) is curving up as it leaves the frame, while the right is curving down.

The sharpness is fine. Its not over-sharpened, but a high contrast can give a similar impression. Over-sharpening will always leave visible halos around edges, so that pole in the middle would look like it had a bright halo around it if over sharpened.

Layering multiple exposures wont improve sharpness, but it will, depending on how the layers are used, increase dynamic range, - similar to HDR.

The exif data shown will be for the first shot taken/uploaded, and f/5.6 is the sharpest aperture that this lens has, edge to edge, which means good sharpness and detail.


Hope this helps,



regards
