    I like shots 9 and 16 mate, two slightly different takes on the same scene :thumbsup:
    Did you use filters on those two?

    2 7 and 11 and 12 for me. I love the composition of 2 especially, 12 could possibly do with having the horizon levelled off.

    :thumbsup:

    Thanks very much guys....The usual bunch commenting again...Thanks for taking the time... Its very upBuilding:thumbsup:

    Bowen the ones you mention Are Hdr The sky was really like that..Maybe a bit darker as I used a longer exposure.

    The sepia thing was A try at something different:)

    Liquid I didnt notice the horizon on that one ...your right Ill have to sort that out.Number 2 is an amazing thing to Shoot.In the winter when the Res is full the water just storms down those steps,its amazing.Ill have to go back in the winter just for that.
    I remember when i was a kid,my older brothers dangled me ovr the edge by my feet:eek: No wonder im disturbed.:D

    cheers:hiya:

    Morning Vulkan,

    My favourites are 2, 10 and 14.

    Very minor thought for 10 would have been to capture a little more at the bottom of the scene to match the amount of space above the trees at the top. Still love the shot as is though and I'm sure others would prefer it as it is!

    I like what you have done during PP as well. It's amazing the difference it makes (E.g. comparing 2 and 13).

    Cheers.

    Really like 12, 13 and 14. It may be my monitor that's not calibrated but the water in 7 and 8 looks too blown and takes the attention away from the rest of the photo.

    Like the composition of 2 but not sure about the sepia.

    Overall great set.:thumbsup:

    The colour ones look great - nice and dynamic. Watch out for the reflections in the water not matching the colour of the sky though.

    The sepia/mono ones need a bit more zap to them IMO. More contrast possibly, or some re-colouring prior to conversion to give them more mood.

    Thanks everyone:thumbsup:

    Tobers,Your right no doubt.Ive never tried sepia before,the straight conversion was very flat so I did add a bit of contrast and shadows adjustment, but they are still missing something arnt they:rolleyes: Ill have to try and do better with with my next sepia shots.

    Duo-tone next:)

    #7 and #9 for me out of the lot. Nicely composed. I must admit that i'm not a massive fan of some of the processing you have used on some of the shots but I can see what you were trying to achieve.

    I love the lines of #2, but the sepia tone is too rich for me, any chance of a normal colour or B&W version? The version of it in #13 has made the sky very odd!

    #3 has nice composition but could do with some brightening. #5 is interesting - with a shot like that I'd have shifted around to make sure nothing was cut off, e.g. the sign. It's hardly a focal point, but it still looks strange partially obscured.

    #8 is probably my favourite, the sepia copes well with the wide dynamic range and the composition is well done.

    Good set :)
