    Australian cliff Have I over cooked it?

    Following my hosts down an enormous number of steps and rubber necking everything in the hope of capturing something I was struck by this cliff and snapped it. I quite like it and tried to put a little more light on the rocks with Photoshop. Darkening the surrounding foliage also (especially the foreground) seemed to help but could it be better?

    Hi, John;

    The image has nice detail, and certainly pops. If you put more light on the projecting bit that's at about one-third from the bottom, centered, then my opinion would be that you've probably gone a little far in PP. In looking at it, I got a feeling that it was blown. If it wasn't blown in the original, then you may have done so in processing. To my taste, that would be a bit overcooked.

    Cheers,
    Rick

    Very colorful, time of day makes a big difference when shooting in daylight and also shutter speed, lets less light hit the sensor. What settings were you using?
