have had a pop at a mod..felt there was perhaps a little too much sky, but great subject matter...made some adjustments to exposure and added vibrance (in LR4). Hope you like the mod Smile

Hi Roger, I did a mod on your image, as I found the sky a little washed out and not much punch in the shot. I put it into Photoshop camera raw and made adjustments to the contrast, highlights and blacks. I went into HSL/greyscale and moved all the sliders to the left to take any colour out of the image. Used the gradient filter on the sky with -1.0, adjusted contrast shadows and whites. I moved it into PS, copied the background layer > layer panel > blending mode > multiply > opacity 100%. I then used the dodge tool on the sky to help bring the clouds out. I also notice small dark smudges in your sky, which tells me you have dirt on your sensor, which obviously needs to be cleaned. Hope this helps.

Theres 3 or more sizable dust bunnies on either the sensor or the lens, - looks like sensor, so time for a clean.

Hello Smile

I want to ask you if this picture has been already cropped, it doesn't look like a 3:2 vertical execution and that is the closest I can think of.

I don't want to complain about the sky and the dust, I will comment on the composition itself.

I think it would be more interesting and more humourous (at least for my taste) if you were coming a step to the right probably on the tracks and you were letting them the boat, it's certainly not a norma find at the ends of rail tracks. I know taht would mean that the house might had appeared closer to it but I think if at the left of the boat is empty space it would be worth exploring it. If there was lots of space (the proposed execution is in landscape style, less sky included, wink) I might had positioned the boat in such way on the right of the fame so the wood construction is excluded).

Hi throgmorton

A place I know very well. The train tracks always pulls you to them and I just wonder just how many pictures have been taken on the beach.

I have uploaded a mod where I have removed most of the birds and added a little more contrast between the different parts of the image. Hope you like it.
