Was a nice old looking boat there :) Shame I cant hold my camera straight, eh? :lol:

I do like them and especially the last one, almost framed with the bushes etc.
Its hard to get the exposure right cause of the total amount of sky in the pics.
Think maybe you could try darken them a little or in areas atleast. Just my 2p.

your severely lacking a polariser there mate :D

Get one :D £15 if that and your skies and water shots will improve greatly :)

It takes crap light light skies (like in your photos... damn UK typical crap skies! :() and turns them various shades of deeper darker blue. :)

Like the last photo however, as brummie said... its well framed :) but yea... definately need a polarisor there. Either that or fiddle with the curves on the blue channel to make it more darker (move the curve to the lower left)

A polariser, used carefully, would have really brought some of them out, they all lack a bit of contrast and that could be corrected easily enough in software. Just run through one stop photo fix in PSP



Bit of hand manipulation, just have a close look at the clouds...

snellgrove, I know you dont like post prosesing. butbut the 1° angle correction can make all the difrence. I must admit to haveing usinfg a slight rotation to correct an images .

Yeah, I could do with a bit of angle correction you are correct there.

and indeed, filter...  required lol, does look improved there with a bit of the messing about with.

Hmmmm will have to look into the filters I think... good for protecting the lens, too..

The only filters you might need are a skylight and a polariser. everything else can be done on your compy.

No it isnt, you can only do so much with the camera and then its off to the darkroom. Even the *best* photographers arent beyond some post photographic changes. Photo manipulation has been happening almost since cameras were invented.

Every photo that comes out of a bucket shop has been done in order to try and get it presentable.
