Cotswold Landscapes

I have never posted a landscape before, not very confident with them.

Comments and suggestions for improvement most welcome.

Re: Cotswold Landscapes

Very pretty David, although a bit too big for my monitor.

Re: Cotswold Landscapes

My apologies Dave. I seem to have c****d up the resizing

Can I correct this? If so how anyone?

Re: Cotswold Landscapes

Big is good with my 22" screen as well :-) I suspect a 14-54 lens in use there. Good choice of subjects (and lens..)

I like the third one.. Chipping Camden? (We know the rector there)

Good stuff, though some may complain that the highlights are slightly clipped

I will have to view it on my 27" imac rather than my small macbook.
I use LR and resize when exporting to a folder before I upload to the gallery.

Yes Pete, much better viewed on big screen.

Re: Cotswold Landscapes

Thank you all for your remarks, I am encouraged to do more. Local landscapes are not as photogenic as the Cotswolds though.

Pete
Indeed Chipping Campden (we stayed there a week for the music festival and enjoyed a ring on the fine old peal of bells on the Sunday morning), lens 12-60 mm. Will give clipped highlights some attention

Dave
I re-sized in PS. Normally set horizontal to 1200 px max but instead set vertical to 900 px without paying proper attention to the outcome. My question related to correcting the images in the gallery. My understanding is that they get automatically renamed so were I to delete and upload replacements they would disappear from the post. Is this correct?

Re: Cotswold Landscapes

I feel the hedge shadow in No.1 looms a bit.
I like No. 2 although I would probably have kneeled down a bit to separate the tree from the foliage above.
My screen view did a good crop on No.3 and it wasn't until I scrolled right I saw the bit of other building. I don't think the picture needs it. The light is also a bit flat. Try raising the midtones and work on the sky and I think it'll sing better.

Re: Cotswold Landscapes

No 2, nice scene, and as the tree frames the lighter area a good choice. Might have liked a bit more foreground.

No 3, very typical english light, how nice it would have been with a more co-operative sky as it looks like there should be some bloom colour on those trees. I think you need to look to your verticals, there's about a degree or more lean on the church and the building (obscr rhs). Nice shot though.

Don't think you need worry about posting landscapes.

Nick

Re: Cotswold Landscapes

Wanderer & Nick

Thank you both for your constructive suggestions. I have attempted to incorporate them in a modified #3
