    Morning shot

    I snapped this one in the morning and the next one in the evening, same day and same place. I's amazing the difference in colours, although here was a big storm in the morning. C&C welcome.

    Hi Wayne

    I think I prefer the first image, not so keen on the colours in the second. I think the compostion in the first is better too. Larger versions of the images would be nice.

    Hi Wayne,

    The most relevant bit of C&C might be to ask why you chose these exposures?
    One is under-exposed and the second is blown in the sky.

    You have obviously cropped in PP (or perhaps by choosing an aspect ratio at time of shooting jpg), so why not attempt to fix the exposure in PP? Or get it right at time of shooting?

    I appreciate you may be trying to convey a mood with them as they are, but I think you've over done it

    BTW, I had to edit your post to add the EXIF data

    Compositions are fine for me and horizons are level, which is good, I would second Dave's request to see them bigger.

    Hope that helps,

    Here's the originals. I agree the second was overdone with the PP. I was trying to capture more light by leaving the shutter open longer, which is why the small aperture setting.Morning shot

    Hi Wayne

    I do prefer the colour tones in the original version of image 2 (ie the second one posted). All I'd do to this is straighten the horizon (as you did with your pp work on this image). I don't think I'd crop it. Very nice.
