    I like the compo of the image.

    A couple things seem odd? The tree in the center of the frame is very sharp. Yet the rest of the image seems a little soft. Including the wall directly below the tree, the buildings behind it and the tree in the fg.

    Were the clouds 'burned' in using PS?

    It is a great capture, yet seems a bit out of focus on the bridge and on the rocks - not sure on what your focal point was? If it is a common place that you can get back to, perhaps trying it at a lower angle and focusing on the rocks - that would be cool.

    thank you for your comments, i understand what you are saying about the softness, i have looked on the original and all seems well, must be a jpg lossy thing, or softened when i burned the image.
    many thanks for your time..

    First off, beautiful shot. Very nice!

    After you converted to mono, it looks like you might have done some dodging and burning. I can tell from the sky. If this is not the case, tell me to eat my hate but if it is, maybe using a wider brush and set it a bit more soft and only to 3% on both the dodging and burning. This should make it not as obvious.

    hi all
    yes i did use dodge and burn with this image, i made a mistake with the colour version by forgetting to alter the white balance, now i shoot in Raw all the time.
    Thank you for making me feel welcome, and for the information, i have only been using digital for 8 months.

    I really like the photo, but whats up with the bridge? It seems to repeat itself in a very unnatural way... I hope you don't mind me posting a close up version to show what i mean.

    Bakewell bridge was built in the 14th century, and is a 5 pan bridge, thats probably why it repeats its self.
