It's amazing to me the colours and gradients that can be pulled out of M240 images.

Not only amazing : nice shot! I know quite well Sintra, not too far from my home in Algarve. At what year's and day's time did you get the image?

I'm jealous, Pecole, that you live in such a picturesque location. 

 

It was Tuesday, 15 November 2016, at 5:07 pm, taken from Castelo dos Mouros. My friends and I had just been to Palácio da Pena, and then walked around Castelo dos Mouros as the sun was setting. 

 

We only had a day there; on reflection, I think I could have easily spent a week walking around Sintra.

Very nice Shane, and welcome to the Forum.

 

Worthy of a large print, really.

 

cheers...

 

 

Beautiful!  Keep them coming.

 

Thanks Pecole, David and Stu

Then, I pulled the highlights down a lot.
 
Perhaps in future I should shoot a stop down, to bring out the sky, rather than editing for highlights. What do you think?

Hi Shane...you asked.

 

Reckon it's good as it is.

I'd run a test print to see what has to be done, but, perhaps some dodging to bring out the road, a bit, and the rocks a bit.

 

I think you still need to keep the counterpoint centred on the people, opposed to the Palace...as it is now.

 

Remember, "dodging and burning" is your friend!

 

all best...

Much appreciated Dave – very helpful getting me to think about how the eye sees a counterpoint. 

 

dodging and burning...dodging and burning...
