    Is a really good photo just perhaps a little bit over-exposed...

    I might edit it. the problem I have is things look different on my Samsung TFT. so what looks correct to me actually looks a little brighter to others.

    [edit] I've changed it a bit now, does it look better?

    Caught that really well and not having seen the original picture in any depth I think that you have fixed it, yes :)

    If you lost the red windbreak, i don't think it wouldhurt the picture at all.

    The original was a little 'washed out' because my monitors gamma is quite dark, so I end up editing till it looks okay on there but looks wrong on other monitors. I think it's fixed now though.

    The red thing in the background is another kite, I might crop it out later if I get time. Not sure whether to just leave it for now.

    Here's another I took:

    I quite like this one too (this will probably be washed out as I didn't edit it again)

    Really like this :) would have preferred the subject to be further right in the shot personally but I like the way the guide lines head off at the diagonal, can't make my mind up about the kite in the background though.
