A really nice shot, and a lovely scene.

Its a tad flat, - meaning low contrast due to the brigh light creeping in at the top, and the houses are not quite vertical. A few tweaks with a crop, and adjustment with curves to add contrast and reduce the distant glare can make this "pop" a little more.

Hope this helps

A great picture Paul,I prefer it to the others on the Gold Hill web page.
As Willie says,tad flat so I have enhanced it with levels and curves but not to take away the autumnal feel and colour. I do feel it is not as sharp as it could be but it does not detract from the feel of the view. A very pleasant capture.

Great stuff Paul m8. I knew this would go down well. banehawi's edit has done a great job on the verticals and background definition. Post processing is a slowly acquired skill but the beauty of a well-taken base shot like this is that you can always return and re-edit it as your processing skills develop.

Just to do something differant Ive had a go at tranforming the shot to early evening,giving it a bit more contrast and interest.4D

Thanks to all for the comments, as this is my first ever post I appreciate the feedback. I'm going back to the TIFF to make it 'pop' more. I look forward to posting more soon.
