just to clear up a few things - first of the middle of the shot IS tack sharp in full res (I didn't apply any sharping to the screen res version - I forgot!) and that foreground isn't as contrasted as it looks in a browser. I just looked at the version on D.A (In a browser) and for somereason it looks way darker on the foreground than in PS! I had this problem the other day with sRGB JPG exports not matching what I see in photoshop OUTSIDE of photoshop (ie. browsers). But when you open the image back in PS it looks fine! Somthing very bloody strange going on there and its starting to annoyme!
The vigenetting is another example of that problem. I'm gonna clear out my PS colour settings later and reset everything. Somehings been changed somewhere along the lines just don't know what!
Your right about the rope - that might have to go. Been toying with that since I processed the shot.
I rarely use polorizers - I don't really have any interest in the rocks beneath the sea level. The water was quite calm as it was.
Yeah the details in the cliff could be brought out more but this was shot during the last 15 minutes of light so they were pretty dark anyway. I'm not overly keen on this shot myself - its nothing compared to my other works, I was just experimenting with a new 10 stop ND
thanksa gain for the input! much appreciated! Feel free to check out my other works
thanks for the input I have the same shot with the water breaking on the shorelines with nice defining lines between the waves, but I liked the way this had the light reflecting of the almost invisible water in the bottom half of the breaking wave
Um.. which paths are you refereing to? The pyg track could be quite trecherous in the dark, crib goch is a no go even in good light lol.
The watkins path I absolutly love - its the longest ascent and has the best scenary BUT I have yet to make it to the top of that path as I just get too distracted and spend around 8 hours just getting upto the ridge lol. Then last two trips up that one the weathers turned for the worse and I was forced back down lol.
I might take the llanberis path next time or even the train up, then follow the track back down after sunset... yeah that might be a good idea!
