Ruins by Silver-Guild Ruins by Silver-Guild
Shot taken of a castle in the South West of England, about an hour away from where I live, only I can't remember what it's called!

Anyway, all comments and feedback are really appreciated :)

EDIT: Upped the contrast slightly

It's a nice composition, Rowena and I can see you've gone low down to get a good angle on it, which works well.

I think Leeby is indicating that the contrast needs to be more distinct, because the castle looks a little two dimensional...flattened off slightly in relation to the scenery around it.

I tend to create a duplicate layer and set the top one to 'Soft Light', then adjust its opacity.

I like it. It looks an interesting ruin and you've captured it from a great perspective.

Thanks :)

Yeah I see exactly what you mean (and Leeby). I had a bit of trouble working out what contrast to go for, because one version just looked too artificial, but at the same time I see that it needs to stand out a bit more.

I was going to do a bit more work on this one, and I think I might try the two layers thing :)

Thank you again, and thanks for the suggestions :)

I can see where you're coming from. I did consider using it, but I didn't want to over work it. Although, looking at it again, I think I might give it a go. I think I was focusing more on the contrast, and trying to work out how far to go!

Thanks for the advice :)

No problem, remember its not advice, its an opinion. M opinion may be wrong, but the image has to look how you want it to look. Im only a rookie myself :) lol
