Ribblehead Viaduct

Taken last week on a holiday in the Dales. Shooting into the sun with my E-M1 and mZuiko 25mm at f7.1. Made up from 8 shots hand-held and processed in Photoshop CC. Inverted ND Grad effect applied in Lightroom.

Re: Ribblehead Viaduct

Over the years I've seen many a photograph of Ribblehead Viaduct, I must say thus is an excellent image. Well captured and processed from a excellent view point. All that's missing is a steam engine crossing.

I would crop a little from the bottom just below the rocks. I would also adjust the contrast a bit.

Other than that I like it and its better than what I did when I was last there.

Re: Ribblehead Viaduct

A nicely executed panorama Stephen , I can't help thinking that the flat lighting conditions do not help and it works better as a moody black and white,which it did for me after playing with it just my thoughts and you may wish to give it a try.

Re: Ribblehead Viaduct

Thanks, Derek, Alf and Paul. I shall certainly try it as a mono, and also Alf's crop. Alf, would you increase or decrease the contrast? Derek, there were diesel trains passing over it frequently, both passenger and freight. But it would have played havoc with my panoramic combining!

A great photo of one of my favourite places. With regards to the trains, you could just "photoshop one in after" as suggested to me by Chevvy when we were there!

Cheers,

Ralph.

Thanks for the comment. As regards 'shopping a train in, that is my greatest hate! I could never bring myself to be so dishonest! I know plenty people work that way, but not me!

I like it - it's a place I@ve never visited.

BTW, how have you been getting on with your Skoda Yetti?

Re: Ribblehead Viaduct

Bill - your comments are always welcome and never 'umble. Thank you.

Thanks Jim - the size of the viaduct makes it very difficult to photograph.

The Yeti is the dogs wotsits. Luggage space can be on the tight side but the seats fold and are removable. The 1.8 turbo petrol engine was great for powering up the dales! Handling is very sure-footed, and its visibility means it can be placed inch-perfect on the road.

It's an excellent shot Stephen train or no train. B&W would be good too I'm sure.

Thanks Phill. It's got a sheep in it, if that's any consolation?

Re: Ribblehead Viaduct

Hi there Stephen!

I have to agree with the photoshopping in of the train. Unfortunately it seems that they only run steam trains on a Wednesday for most of the year, a day of the week I rarely get off. As I said earlier, a great photo even without a train!

Cheers,

Ralph
