I like the mod, it really lifts the image and has a greater intensity and impact to it.

I think the composition isn't too bad but feel you could have worked a little harder to find a better position. Moving closer and lower to the f/g rock would ( IMO ) have made a big difference to the dynamics of the image.

The colour balance needs adjusting as the photo is too cool and blue looking. It needs warming up so there is a balance between the cool and warm colours of the image. Banehawi has done this very well in his mod.

Overall a shot which has potential. It has good lighting and, if you can return to the spot, has a lot of compositional promise. Sometimes very small changes in position can make great changes in the success of the composition.

This is only an opinion.

Thanks for you comment in my portfolio. Just noticed it today, so sorry for the delay.

I used Photoshop CS3 for this, - but you can do the same with Elements 6 which is not free, but its affordable.

To do any serious image manipulation you need somethig like Elements 6 or Paint Shop Pro as a minimum. Its usualyy a very good inversment if youre really interested in going further with digital photography. For example, if you plan on doing any on-line or real time courses, you will be using Photoshop, - its the standard.
