Corfe Castle

By kimgeliot
This is Corfe Castle near where I live in Dorset taken from another hill immediately opposite. I wanted to digitally enhance the sky somehow to make it more dramatic, but haven't figured out how to use the software yet so it's just as I saw it for now !

This is a great shot, Kim. Very well composed. I'm sure you'll get the hang of Photoshop with more practice. But I think this is good 'as is'

Oh boo, Thanks anyway ! When I've figured it out, I'll re-post and bung it in the digitally enhanced category...

Maybe boosting the contrast a little, selecting the sky and adding a grey graduated filter effect will give more atmosphere, and would be relatively easy to do. I would also use UnSharp Mask to sharpen the image up a little.

just my thoughts...

Actually this image comes our REALLY well with a little bit of tweaking...using Photoshop "quick mask" to select areas and darken them/add contrast. If you are interested, email me, (address on profile page) and I'll go through it in more detail.

Good shot,Would look better if taken from a bit lower down the hill,would then be highlighted by the sky.

Good shot.
