    Peak District

    Taken over looking Hathersage in the peak district using a Nikon D3100. f/11, 1/500 sec, iso 280. Although tone mapped i'm still quite pleased with this as 'im still very new to photography. comments welcome

    A well taken shot Kris. For me the clouds do add to the photo but also detract from the more attractive scenery. Cropping or a pano to remove the sun? Hard to know what might work but it's great as it is.

    A stunning image Kris!

    If you do decide to try a few cropping options and, as Andrew suggests, move the horizon up to eliminate the sun, you might also want to see if you can clone out the large sun spot glare centre right.

    With or without cropping changes, it's a beauty.

    Very nice shot Kris. The sun is a bit bright but you might be able to do somthing about that with pp. Highlights reduction might help, I'm not sure.

    Re: Peak District

    Thanks all for the comments. I did try a cropped version of the image but in the end I did like having the sun and clouds in this shot. As for the orange sun spot, I don't know hw to shift that. I'm still getting to grips with both my camera and the editing processes. Any suggestions?

    For the sun spot, what post processing software do you have and are you familiar with the cloning technique?

    PP software, I have just installed CS5.1 but I am still getting to grips with it. As for the cloning technique, I am not familiar with this but I am eager to learn. I can tbe having big orange blobs in the middle of my pictures.

    There are a number of good textual and video tutorials on the web Kris. I did a search on "CS5 Cloning" and found this one. It shows several cloning techniques and the benefits/drawbacks of each.

    The basic process is quite simple once you play with it a time or two. In essence, you copy a small part of the image over the problem area where the background matches the area with the problem.

    Here is an example where I did some fairly extensive cloning to remove a branch that was overhanging a roof. Project 52 by Frank Miller

    Hope this helps!
