I really don't know what to say about this, It does nothing for me, yet the sky is appealing, the foreground is messy with no point of intrest, JJ are you having us on?, I know you can do much better than this.

Yes Jim, it is a bit of a worry, the lack of intrest in this Panna section, and hey don't take my comments to seriously, I am a down to earth person who speaks his mind.

I have a lot of those kind of pictures, scenes I thought were fantastic but the pictures just don't do it justice. I bet the full size shot is much much better. All the pictures lose a lot when you have to resize them down so much. I do like how you see about six different depths in the picture.

With so much sky in the picture, how could you get the nearer foliage to not be a little dark withought washing out the sky?

Hi Jim,

I imagine the New England trip was to see some of the autumn colur I believe

the area is famous for ... my idea is to maybe boost that some to add more

interest.

I've taken the liberty to do a little PS processing ie. I used the

shadow/highlights filter to open up the foreground shadows a little, then

boosted the colour contrast, by applying the curves filter in LAB colour.

I've probably gone a little over the top in this, but this was just a quick one

to illustrate the the effect, I know the purists will frown on this sort of

treatment.

Hope you like the idea anyway, ,,, Jack.

sorry but I like the first, the latter lacks depth and bit oversaturated.

I don't have a problem with the original image per se'... other than needing a "pep" up...

Hi,
I've no problem with that, we all have different opinions and tastes, but I think you misunderstand my intention.
jjdog2 does invite comment and suggestions re. his picture ... I merely tried to show a method of improvement (IMO), not a finished product.

For speed I applied irreversible changes (a quick and dirty approach) to a single layer, just to illustrate a principle. I did say I thought it over the top.
To produce a final result needs a more flexible multilayered approach to blend into a more acceptable finish. ... Jack
