Re: Watendlath Tarn

Sorry Alf, but the only criticism I can make is the lightness of the clouds on the right-hand side. It's a beautiful panorama. I wish I'd taken it.

Re: Watendlath Tarn

I know you've mentioned in another thread that you have W/B issues. This looks a little "warm" for my taste.
But then again it might be my monitor.

Re: Watendlath Tarn

Know this place well & a rare day to get an image that good with a still tarn to get the reflections & no fly fishermen in a boat. Agree the clouds on the RH side could be dodged in a little to stop your eye being drawn out (minor fix). Really good image, love it.

Re: Watendlath Tarn

A very impressive wide view, good location Alf.

I feel like I want to see the bottom of the water, the edge of the pebbles,
and maybe WB slide minus 1 magenta as to my eye the sky at the top feels a tiny bit purply and the hills are a bit brown. My eyes see differently to yours anyway..

Great photo Alf,
I can't see much to improve apart from what has been suggested. It's a beautiful part of England, thanks for sharing it.
Regards Jim.

Re: Watendlath Tarn

That's lovely. I like the way the clouds seem to arch and which is mirrored in the tarn. Almost a fish-eye look. A bit of gentle vignetting might achieve what others have said.
