    Oliver, I suggest you post larger photos (this is too small to be seen well)
    A larger image, say 800 high by a max of 1000 wide gives a lot more to look at.

    And allow editing.
    Oftentimes a simple demonstration works out much better than a bunch of words.

    I like that last one you posted better than the first one. To me the grey skies compliment the look more than the blue skies. jmho

    I would recommend less contrast, less saturation, and more exposure. Oh, and clean your sensor.

    You should have used the original crop. The second crop is not the same because you cut off too much of the sky. The sky is my favorite part. #1 is too saturated for my taste, so perhaps dial it back some.

    Check your export settings. Look for a place where it gives you options for size based on pixel count. Do not crop the shot and do not compress it. Just size it to fit within a 1000 pixel size.

    O.K., that one measures 800 pixels wide by 533 pixels high. You can still go a little bigger.

    I changed the wide to 800 but I do not see where I can change the pixels high in Lr. Thanks for your reply Nick
