    Hi ya

    Went down to Deven during Easter, one afternoon was spent in Lynton and Lynmouth. Very nice place and we really didn't have enough time.

    Lynmouth is very nice. We spent a week there in July and had a great time. On the far left you can nearly see the apartment we stayed in! :)

    The first shot is a nice angle, but I think the contrast is perhaps a bit overcooked. The third shot suffers a bit from this, but over-sharpening and the rather strong brown sepia* are more of an issue here for me. Looking at the original size perhaps camera shake may have blurred the image a tiny bit and you were trying to compensate for that, but it has made the edges a bit halo-y and really shows up the noise.

    If I were processing this I'd pick a less brown sepia and apply just a hint of it, and I'd sharpen the image a fair bit but while viewing at 100%, to see when the artifacting and haloing started to kick in.

    *it looks like the 1952 flood has returned! ;)

    Hi ya Fozzy, thanks for looking:smashin:


    Have taken in what you have said.

    With the 1st one I may of over cooked the contrast a bit.

    With the 3rd one I tried to get an old and grim look to it, I was quite happy the way it turned out.

    Okey dokey. :)

    I've got pretty much the same shot as that last one, a slightly wider angle with the tide in:

    Hello there

    Well we went back one year on, guess what we had sun, rain, wind and snow that day, so still didn't get a good look around the place.


    Here one I took.
