  • Misty Mornings

    Over the past couple of weeks during my regular dog walk in Lyme Park I've been trying to capture the wintery morning mists that seem to fill the Cheshire Plains at this time of year.

    Can't decide if this last one is only fit for the recycle bin?

    My fav there is No1, I can almost feel the frost from here.

    I don't know about the bin for No4, it does have a certian atmosphere.

      In my opinion 2 and 4 are stunners. The others aren't bad just these two grab the attention.

            1, 2 and 4 for me, though I might crop a fraction on either side of 4.

            Great shots

              Oh no, don't get rid of the last one. Crop/clone out that half tree on the right hand side and it's even better. Maybe increase the contrast a teeny bit too. Love the atmosphere in that one.

                  Actually No.4 is my fave - though it might benefit from some additional post processing to really bring it out?

                    Would 4 be better as black & white?

                      2 & 4 are the best ones, to my eye. On 4: I agree about cloning out that bit of tree at top right; I wouldn't make it B&W; I would be interested to see what it looks like if in contrast, you select that bottom triangle of brown frosted grass and up the saturation a bit...

                      On 2, a lovely shot - don't touch it!! LOL

                      I'm jealous! Round here all we have is flat country, damp streets and leaden grey-brown skies and not a sign of the beauty of Winter, so I don't think I shall get a crack at that E-30 comp at all.

                        I particularly like the second one. All are worth keeping although I would clone out the bit of tree and inhabits the far right of the last one. It seems that when taking trees there is always a part of one on the edge that you don't really want. There is a fine line between how much of a tree on an edge (or top in relation to branches) is acceptable. In relation to the first image I would say that there isn't really enough of the tree on the left and the trunk cuts the edge - more of the tree would be better. However, given that what I see is what you took (I am guessing), I would crop it to exclude the trunk. This still leaves the 'hole' between trees, which is a nice feature of this image.
                        We have nice landscapes around here in south Wales and a two-week break from work over Christmas should inspire me to dust off the E-3.

                          I've used Ellie's and others suggestions to crop & add contrast and here's the result. Thank you.
                          However I don't think B&W is the way to go as this IMO would/might lose the muted nature that appears in the colour version. (I concede that this opinion reflects my inexperience at B&W conversion).

                          I really appreciate the tutelage on this friendly site and hope it's improving my photography.

                          Since adopting Lightroom it has become so much easier to create new versions and try-out changes - almost too easy, you have to decide when to draw the line...

                          Hope you like the changes.

                            I actually think No3 is the weakest; Nos 1,2 & 4 are stunners. No4 may benefit from shifting the WB a little towards blue to acentuate the coldness of this fantasic winter scene.
