Yep taken on the hill above Audlem, I'm not sure if this is too dark and if the figure is too small. Any suggestions will be greatfully received.

No i think the light balance is just right,thats how it was,

i took some later and they came out just as warm,i was on my way back from the locks,had been there a few hours,

so i was cold,just wanted to get home for a quick cup of tea before heading out to Barbridge.

Thanks everybody, having tinkered a bit more in Photoshop I've created an alternative version which I prefer and which I'll post tomorrow.

Happy New Year.

Love the atmosphere in this shot. Despite the warm tones, it looks very cold indeed. The lone figure gives a wonderful feel to the image. I look forward to you modified version.

I like this, the figure is essential here as it's nothing without it. I'd be tempted to move him/her upwards a touch and slice a bit off the left, just me perhaps.

Thank you all for your kind words and comments. I'll take you advice and use this shot but possibly cropping a bit tighter on the man.

Happy New Year

No wonder this did so well because it is a cracking image & made all the better with the person in the FG
Well taken
