Many thanks! Glad to hear your input and experiences... but it is challenges like this that make the hobby interesting... It wouldn't be so much fun if there were no effort and work to put in to this hobby.

All the best.

It is nice as it is but if it's not quite what you were aiming for then maybe you could post a link to a picture by someone else which matches the effect you want more closely. Maybe someone can then recommend differences in the PP to make yours match. Just a thought...

Hi Jehan!

Many thanks, mate. Great to hear from you. I saw one of the new train coaches rush past me the other day... thought of your train collection.

Thanks for your kind words.

Thanks, Martin.

This is an intriguing problem... I keep looking out my window, even at this moment... but what I want to accomplish in a photo is hard to do... BUT I know when I do, my Finnish lakeside pictures are going to be vastly improved.

Thanks for your kind advice.

Is this any closer? I extended the dynamic range on the trees to allow a bit more detail to show through.

Not a huge difference between the two but I prefer the colour in the second - the greens are slightly toned down, the blue of the sky is more pleasing and the leaves are very slightly softer I think.

I prefer the crop of the first one though. Maybe just take a bit off the bottom to bring the rock to the foreground but you've lost the tip of the central trees and it feels a bit less balanced in the second version.

Yeah, you are right about the crop... I should have seen that. Many thanks.
