thanks guys...

in the second one..the histogram had almost everything on the left half...but none clipped...so i guess that's ok? and the first one, was spread out along it, which, i've read in outdoor photographer, is good tonal range...it's possible that bright spot in the back was burnt in the second one...

thanks for your help...

Vito

Second shot with same levels adjustment and S-curve applied. (Hope you don't mind that I did this, Vito). Not much difference between the two after adjustments. I didn't do anything other than those 2 adjustments...I was just leveling out the histograms to show the effects.


Just realized that I did apply some sharpening to the 2nd shot that I didn't doon the first, so that may be evident.

no i don't mind, i appreciate the time you put into this though!

ok....i hope i'm not the only one...and it's possible this is your point...but i don't see a difference in the two....well....i see shutter speed differences like, the reflections in the water are smoother in the one...but the highlight area looks the same...the beach colors look the same...

i'm not sure if i like the originals or the adjusted ones better :-

thanks for the help

I am going to have to go with the second one. I tend to like darker photos though. I think the colors are too washed out in the first one.

I'd choose the second if the goal is overall composition. However, if some critter was in the shadow areabelow the bank in the shadows thenI'd accept the first, since I could see some definition in the shadow area with that rendition.

The first is definitely extremely overexposed in some areas whereas the underexposure in the other one is acceptable, and even preferrable in some ways because of the "shadowy" emotion provided.

Of course the overexposed area could be providing an emotive effect as well, but in this particular work I can see the shadow as natural and the overexposed area in the first work as an overexposure and nothing else (in those areas of concern).

PS: Neat looking area and you definitely capture a mood.
