    following peoples advice I downloaded a free editing programme to play around with called photoscape.
    I had a play with it last night results as follows.

    exhibit A

    (now i know A wasnt a great photo to begin with but this was an exercise in editing)

    I'm not sure what you are trying to achieve with these edits...

    the pano (A) is composed nicely, but there is little definition or contrast so it's hard to say if it is good or not..

    (B) is interesting...the frame is full and each element has it's own character..but it is busy and a particular subject is impossible to ascertain.

    both are washed out and appear to be over-processed......however, I know that photos are down-processed to fit on the site, so perhaps they are much better in full resolution.

    try using gimp or paint.net if you have to. they are fairly good editors for being free.

    thanks for the reply.
    the first one wasnt a particularly good photo to begin with but as i said this was an exercise in editing

    the whole scene was the subject of the second one

    I don't really see what you are trying for. The first is underprocessed, the second far too much, to the point where it has no detail.
