As Vic says, the light on the stones is lovely. We're coming up to the best time of year for Padley... get ready for those gorgeous autumn colours.

even i usually turn out of bed for Padley in autumn.

i think you could get a bit more contrast without the hdr Mate, i think it loses something once hdr comes in to play. ill have a chat next time we have a workshop at the club. its better to use layers and erase through areas of contrast. look at the water flume and you will see what i mean. its turned blobby and the area of highlight where the water hits is still a long way from bright enough.

expose for water to retain detail, then make a layer with highlights pushed to the limits of the histo for white but not blown. blend that back in with erasure and opacity slider. then a add a little detail in highlights and shadows. (into the shadows.) then a bit of dodging and burning on the streaks in the water. hdr has left it a bit flat.

after pushing the contrast, select just the foreground rocks and sharpen them within an inch of their life to make the moss leap out.
