Giants Causeway

By ISO400  
A fairly mediocre shot of a wonderful landscape. SO I am hoping you guys can set me on the path of bettering my shots. I am going back to the north coast in the summer holidays - so perhaps with your help - the next upload will be fab!!

You've captured it well with a good composition. You're lucky to be going back - I'm jealous.
I think it would look better if you either increased your depth of field so the hills in the background were also in focus OR deliberately reduce the DoF so they are even more out of focus. I'm guessing it was hand-held? A tripod would really sharpen it up.

Thanks Mike ...
This was taken a while a go with a Canon 300d ... I have since upgraded to a 5D ... hoping that might help me somewhat as well - and my increased knowledge in Photoshop Wink

Thanks for your comments. Much appreciated.

looks so nice there, and it's very rare to get a shot looking back to land - no one really knows that there's a cliff behind it and a bit of a walk to get there!

we do now!

cojposuitionally this is fine, gets the message accross well, lots of shapes and patterns.

Exposure.. mabe a 1 or 2 stop ND grad would help with the sky, but it's not burned totally, so ok there.

Sharpenss - that's an issue here, it's probably worh going back with a tripod, setting the same shot up at F16 and setting it off with the timer or the cabel release. Focus on the top of the foreground or just in front, should get the lot crisp then.

Tip it up a little bit to get a better appreciation of the geometric shapes..?( exclude the sky altogether..??) the camera..300D or 5D is not an issue..but focus/sharpness is...!! tripod nearly essential.. wish I was there ..
