Clifford Tower, York

By Steve Cribbin
I liked the way that the side-lit lines in the grass of the mound lead up to the tower, which stands out well against the clear blue sky in the evening light.

ISO 100 f/5.6 @ 1/400 sec

Hi Steve,

Well spotted lines which you've used to good effect, well done.

Steve I still thing you can bring out the sun and shadows a touch more. I've posted a mod where I have altered the colour tones before adding some contrast, then erased the alterations from certain parts. I then applied a black gradient to the sky and then selected "soft light" before again erasing the effect from everywhere but the sky. Steve I hope that was not your family or friends at the base of the tower because i'm afraid I removed them as well Grin.

Take care

Good capture of Clifford’s Tower Steve.

I also like Martin’s mod.

Thanks for the mod Martin. It has really added more punch to the image.
Don't worry about removing the people, I thought about it myself but decided against it in the end - so no visit from the family in the night.
I had aleady applied an exposure gradient to the sky in Lightroom but it can definitely handle the extra dose.
I wanted to bring out the sun on the stonework but have lost touch with post-processing a bit.
Thanks for the work that you put into the mod.

Thanks for all of the votes and comments.
