DERWENT VALLEY [DERBYSHIRE]

By Tish1
This is from the Zigzag series and I think my preference over the previous upload; although my tutor and fellow students seemed to prefer the previous upload titled Zigzag.

We are currently on half term for a whole two weeks, but alas we have home to do; I only wish I had enjoyed my home work when I was doing my degrees as I do for photography, although photography home work is not without its challenges.

Many appreciative thanks to all who viewed and commented on my upload Zigzag and a special thanks to Carol [Caziwinkle] for her much cherished UA.

As always your comments good or bad are warmly welcomed in order to assist me in my course and hopefully improvement.

I have looked at both of them, both stunning Tish...however I think I prefer this one as the sky is magnificent, which didn't feature in the first. You still have the beautiful reflections and the zig zags. What the first one had was the figure standing at the waters edge, that was special....so in summary both winners, but this by a length due to the lovely skyGrinGrin...

I like both images, both stand alone well as individual compositions for me, the sky is better in this one and well exposed but look at the histogram and it is shifted to the left showing some underexposure on the land. I have done a mod to compensate. I have also changed the crop to go for a classic 2/3 land 1/3 sky, there is still enough of the nice sky. I have cropped off the nib of land in the foreground as it draws my eye down and I think the bank sweep acts as a better lead. I cropped some off the right as it wasn't adding much for me. Cloned out the dust bunny in the sky one third from the left just above the horizon. I increased contrast and saturation a little to give a little more impact (very much down to personal taste) and used the dodge tool to bring out some detail in the shadow of the lake bank on the right.
Just a different interpretation and feeling for the same lovely image.
Works well as a mono also, mod 2. Mostly yellow, blue and green sliders.

Thank you Nigel, I did take filters with me in order to try and balance the exposure, but some idiot forgot to take the filter holder Blush. That dust bunny has been driving me mad, it must have been there the whole day and I didn't spot it until I put the images on my computer. I am just discovering dodge and burn, but don't yet have the confidence or know how to use them yet, so watch this space.

A fellow student on the course was so impressed with these images he has asked me to take him to the location, will be there again this coming Wednesday, so hopefully I will be able to study your mods and see if I can take something from them to improve my next lot.

Your comments and mods, as always are very welcome.

My preferred tool on photoshop to remove dust bunnies is the clone stamp. Select on the left side, set opacity to 100% set the size a little bigger than the spot and hardness to about 20%. Select a similar shade of sky adjacent to the spot, press the Alt key and left click. Then move the stamp over the dust spot and left click again and you are done. There are other ways too, e.g. spot healer which work OK too.

Nice scene. One word, whitebalance! Its too cool for the time of day and weather. So warmer is better, Ive done this in the mod, removed the thingy, and used a pano crop.


Youre doing very well.

As always Willie you find my hidden mistakes, so well hidden I can never find them, just know they are there; once again, thank for the mod.
