    Wastwater

    Britains favourite view, taken in gale force winds just before the heavens opened on our summer holiday

    I like the threatening sky, together with the light over the hills, it has to be one of the most picturesque view of the Lake District. Lots of days like this summer!

    If I were to quibble with it I think you may have pushed the sky a little too much, there appears to be evidence of a light fringing where the clouds meet the hills on the Right Hand Side

    Re: Wastwater

    On a more serious note Peter, and sorry to criticise, but is it quite as sharp as it could be?

    There's something stopping me liking it and I can't figure it out

    Sorry that's not much help,

    I have seen a few photo's of this scene Peter, a friend of mine took an absolute cracker when he was up that way last October, just after the first snowfall.
    I am in the lakes myself this coming November and I am looking forward to getting a few shots of Wastwater myself.

    Nice photo.

    Hi Dave,

    There may be a little camera shake, it was blowing a gale from slightly behind and to the left of me, keeping still was a problem and no tripod

    Hi Peter,

    I hope you don't mind, my PP version.

    You may feel I have made it too bright.
    Also, the sharpening on top of yours and on the jpg artefacts may be too much.

    Wastwater

    PP
    Levels: 220 = white
    USM for LCE: 20%, 47 Radius, 1 Threshold
    USM to sharpen: 200% 0.3 Radius, 10 Threshold

    The high threshold on the sharpen USM was to avoid sharpening the jpg artefacts, it wouldn't normally be this high (more like 1 or 2, unless noisy, when it might go to 5 or 6).

    Hope that helps (someone),
