Well I feel it's about time I posted some shots of the local moorland, I took this one the other day when it was all sunshine and showers, and you couldn't really tell what was going to happen next. Consequently there are a lot of "dark bits" in this image, I like the effect, but I wish there was more light and less shade Oh well maybe next time!

See what you think,

John.

I love watching the clouds move over the land and by having the dark bits in this shot you can feel the clouds moving.

Very nice

Hi,

Great photo. However I felt it need a bit more contyrast so i tightened up your levels and increased the saturation (see attached) I hope it looks the same as on my PC when re loaded.

Regards,

John

Interesting :!:

It's always good to see how other people see things. I can see where you're coming from, and you're right that the original is a little pale, but I think your edit has gone a little too far the other way. Part of the problem will be that there isn't enough color depth left in the web-optimised jpeg to make the adjustments you wanted without getting some posterization creeping in.

So... I went back to the original images, restitched and adjusted them again, I think it has a little more density now, but I've still not gone as far as your edit did.

It would be interesting to know which version other folks prefer (or if I'm just wasting my time!),

Thanks, John.
