It looks like a serene setting. It looks a little flat though. Try punching up the contrast and saturation, either by using a curves layer (which I'm not too good at) or do a "hue/saturation" layer for the saturation and another "brightness and contrast" layer for the contrast.

Lovely composition, I like the water surface leads the eye to the mountain. But there is a haze and the shot needs a lot of sharpening. I hope I have your permission to make slight changes. I hope you don't mind. Regards. Jaki.

Jaki,

I do not mind anyone adjusting but can you explain the above quote please as I am a novice in photo manipulation and am unsure exactly what is ment or what it does to a photograph.



Iattach another one if you wish to adjust so I can see the differance.

Thanks.

Oooooo, that second one is a real stunner IMO. The first one is nice, but looks too soft to me (digital zoom maybe?).

John.

The second picture is very nice. It does not require sharpening in my opinion. In fact I like the blurry effect as it has an artistic quality to it.

I must confess "the picture needs a lot of sharpening" might have been overstated. Never the less the pictures definitely needed some sharpening which is a visual effect. It brings out details, makes the picture more clear, removes haze and give the pictures a lovely look. Sometimes the difference between a sharp picture and one that is not is not very distinct depending on your screen, it was bad right from the camera. Sharp pictures are a function of correct focussing among others, camera shakes can also cause blurring. With post processing software, example, photoshop and others, this problems to a large extent can be corrected either marginally or a great deal.

What post processing software do you use?

Regards Jaki.
