Hey guys

After finally gettingmy new pair of hiking boots I thought i would get out and about and start a new photo project - Mountains. So, here is my firt shot from my recent visit to the Lake District. It a shot taken from the edge of the Langdale Valley. If anyone is interested in the exact location, just check the image file name.

I've got a stack of photos as the weather was amazing so expect a few more in dribs and drabs! Comments and critique more than welcome.

Thanks, Matt

Great picture. More to come, sure hope so. Nice gesture to let the viewer discover and take part in the result of the creative process

Hiking boots on (smile)

BTW

For some reason The 2:3 format suits very well for landscape photography

Thanks for the comments Torgny and Alex. Torgny, your right about the poets, I do believe there were a few from around that neck of the woods, not sure who they were, more of an alternrock fan myself!

Also with regards the ratio, fortunately it does work ok. The original was taken with an ultra wide angle but i got my big foot in the shot without realising and had to crop!

BTW: also alternrock use rhyme (mindset: see above)

Congrats on your new boots Matt!Hope you'll do full justice to your purchase : )

Your shotmakes a nice present from a hikerfor another...

Still,Ishould say I found your imagea bit red biased which could be easily fixed at Levels > channel Red and also a bit of decrease in the saturation of yellow at Hue/saturation > yellows would be fine. Ah, maybea touch of adjustment at the highlights to bring out more of clouds+ some noise reduction, too : )

Well done, Matt. Looking forward to your further mountain shots

Thanks for the healpful hints Bahadir, your right about the colours, I think i over did it in the colour adjustment layer, i was trying to get the blue bluer if you know what i mean. I also tried your eye dropper tip to set the white using levels. Fantastic!

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"Also thanks for the comments cmoy, much appreciated!
