dramatic feel to it but i feel the left side is a little too dark for my liking
I think in exposing for the sky you've lost the land.
Is it better to add 0.5 or 0.75 stops more?
Would be good if the lake is "silky smooth".
i.e use longer exposure + smaller aperture + ND filter
thanks for the suggestions. guess will try some dodge and burn when I get the chance. thanks for the input.
Wah,u got xpan II? *ENVY*
Read the exif
this kind of composition is crying for HDR..
HDR? how do you do that in CS?
alternatively, you can use a program like photomatix, which makes the process much easier.
The focal point of the image for me is the dramatically polarized sky on top left. That looks good. Perhaps that was your intention.
I would have liked to see more detail.. a clearer silhouette of the gate like structure in the water.
Hi TMC, I practised some processing on your photo with the Capture NX. Would you mind that I post it?
Go ahead. I am still trying to get the HDR thingy working.
I didn't do any HDR thingy... just mess around with the colour control points a bit...

Another shot at HDR. But this one has been converted to 8bit for jpg format. HDR does bring out some great colors for night shots.
