let me start by saying i like how you composed this shot .... i really like the angle and everything in it welldone............. as for the pp too much noise knock the settings down a little and see what you can come up with or use a de noise program to help a little

If it was in B&W I wouldn't doubt it as an Ansel Adams photograph. It has three distinct zones that i remember seeing a lot of in Adams works. Great shot!

Hi Simple,
Thank you. I've worked on the noise. Using Pshop2, noise reduction then despeckle twice. The despeckle I liked it smoothed it a bit and softened.
Hi Jeff, Thank you, I'm over the moon.
Hi Bynx, Thank you. It's the best I feel i could do. I know you could do something great with it.
It's a long road of discovery, but I'm enjoying every step. w-hay was that poetry or what. That's to good for me to have made up. I must have read it somewhair.
I've included the original, if anybody wants to do anything to it, please do.
Big thank's Chums. I was really great comments.
Regards Mark

If the last large shot is your original I think it is excellent on its own without the processing which caused either noise or softness. Aside from perhaps straightening the tower the shot is excellent. I dont see any blown out parts and the darks are to a minimum so no need to worry about. In this case Id like to see a couple people on the bench. One reading the newspaper and the other just sitting. A casual every day kind of event that we get to peek in on. They wouldnt interfere with the great scenery and would add a nice human touch.

Hi Bynx,
Thank you for your kind words. I'm real happy you like the pic. Thats interesting about having like a candid of someone sat on the bech, Ill have to look out for that in the future.
Hi Simple,
Thank you, Glad you like it. I really like what you have done to it. When I now look back at the fist pic I see what's meant by noise. I really like your work on it. is it being nosey or inapropriate if i ask you how you have done that? I read on one of your other posts that you put pics into a hdr program is that it. I've just bought one called Photomatrix and will be giving it a go.
Thank you both.
Regards Mark

to put a single file through photomatix it must be a raw file of some sort as it wont do single jpeg however you could manually alter and create 3 jpegs i guess

To put any file through Photomatix you must change it in Photoshop - MODE to 16 bit and save as TIFF.
