  • Old enemies

    Thanks for the info.I guess they use a bit of 'poetic licence' with these displays and paint it to look like the real thing. That explains why it looks a little different to the Airfix kits I used to build as a kid. Hope you still liked the pboto though?

  • Red hut, Rye Harbour

    Hi derekp, mrswoolybill. Thank you both for taking the time to look at my photo and your comments are most welcome; I will try out both suggestions.

    This was my first visit to Rye Harbour and the hut really stands out against the surroundings making it difficult to pass by without snapping away. Moira, you are right in that I wanted to capture the atmosphere of the beach and that is why I included a lot of the foreground in this shot. I shoot in RAW and this was a straight conversion to JPEG with no post production before uploading. I use Lightroom 5 (almost exclusively) and Elements 12 (very occasionally) so I should be able to achieve the corrections suggested. I have been an ePHOTOzine member for some time and rarely upload anything but intend to try harder from now on.... mmm! flashback to my school report there.

    I took photos from two other viewpoints and will post these over the next few days so as to keep the flow going. If you get the time to comment on them I would be grateful for any suggestions. I feel you never stop learning with photography and always welcome a different viewpoint.

  • Red Kite feeding

    Quote:Well spotted and excellent capture! If I were you and have photoshop, then I would definitely do the following after opening in PS: Duplicate layer then click Image > Adjustments > Shadows/Highlights and alter all figures starting from the top... 86,50,29, 33,50,30, +6 and +9 then OK and flatten layers. I will also clone out the bird behind. You may see some noise after this but that can be removed too by using Topaz filter or Noiseware filter, this will bring so much of details back. It will only take 1 minute! Thanks.

    Hi Harry,
    I only have PS Elements but had a quick go at approximating the changes you suggest. It does bring out more detail, I'll keep experimenting.
    Thanks for the positive comment and the suggestions for improving the image, very welcome. Jack
