Many thanks for your C&C's on my uploads
This image was taken at Rhos on sea at the little harbour,when the tide is in the pleasure boats load and unload at this jetty
I love the range of textures, tones, shapes and forms which you have captured in the very well observed and crafted composition Phil
Great composition and tones, it is a pity that part of the sky is burnt out, I do think there is detail there that you can recover if the original is shot in Raw, this is the advantage over JPEG that you have five stops either way to bring back detail in highlights and shadows, the other way is to take three shots, one as camera has suggested, one stop under exposure and one stop over exposure, then blend them in Photoshop, do you have your camera screen set to show if there are clipped highlights, good tool to use, also checking the histogram after taking the shot helps, this is not to criticize but to help.
still getting the hang of the exp comp, i put it at -1 stop but i didn't want the foreground too dark ( I do use the histogram, and highlight warning), all will be better in a week as i have some grad filters on the way
You can get back detail from the shadows far easier than recovering detail from blown highlights, if you notice on most of my shots that the exposure is usually two or three stops under exposed if there is a white area, you can set a preference in camera to take a sequence of shots, on mine up to nine frames while pressing the shutter, so you would have one as camera, then four over exposure and four under exposure in increments of one stop, or one third of a stop or two thirds of a stop, you decide, I never have to go more than one stop over and one stop under to get a good result. Hope this helps.
I like the wood and the symetry of this image!
