Serene Falls by Rameez-K Serene Falls by Rameez-K
UPDATE: After getting some critique from a few veteran photographers I learned about Luminosity and Saturation masks and used this to build up my image and I have to say its a MASSIVE difference, my post processing looks incompetent compared to now. Please let me know your thoughts :)

Location: Goit Stock Falls, Harden, United Kingdom


Description: YEAH FOOLS DIDNT EXPECT THAT DID YOU?!?!? Such an awesome place I loved every second that I was there :la:

Even though it was raining the entire time =_=

At any rate. I must of found out about this place like two weeks ago and I was like WHAT?!?! A place that looks this good exists in england and its near us?!?! It really goes to show searching locally produces golden results. This is now my most favourite place in the whole world :), and it only takes me an hour to get there >_<

Enjoy!


Technical Info: Nikon D60, 18-55mm DX AF-S + CPL + Manfrotto Tripod

Hi Rameez!
Overall this is a nice shot - there are no major problems here. I like the cascades and the rocks on the left in front of them. This is the strongest part of the image for me. If you have a shot taken more from the left with a zoom on this area - that would be a winner for me.
Compared to this idea your version, while repsecting the classical "thirds" approach feels a little empty. I like the leaf-covered stone in the foreground but it's just too isolated from the center and my eyes jump up and down from the fall to the stone - that's too tiring. The streaks in the creek could work but here they feel just a little too chaotic and don't go with the overall peaceful mood of the image. I've had the same problems before and there's not a lot you can do expect to work with some blending of several shots to maybe improve that look.
The shadows are just a bit too deep for me and if possible I would brighten them a little. The shot also feels a little rotated CW - maybe I'm wrong, but you could also check that on the full version.
I hope I've given you some ideas here on how to maybe alter the image a little.
Take care.

Beautifully captured i must say:nod: One thing i have to pick on is there seems to be some magenta colour cast happening in the foreground(mostly)... heres what a quick colour balance could do i'll delete this once ya see it

Great shot! You're lucky to have places like that in close proximity, though there are probably a few near me that I just haven't found yet. Anyway, I love this photo, it's really calming. I wish I could just hang it up in my room! ...except I have no money to buy a print... TT_TT

Yeah I guess in some aspects I have some countryside thats quite near me but also I don't have anything too spectacular. When I found out about this place my jaw literally dropped. Its one of the top local locations I've been around and hopefully I find some just as good as this :D

Yeah, I've got some OK things near me, like there's a few really cool places, and main street here looks amazing at night. (note to self-get a shot of that sometime :D) But we have a lake nearby, and I haven't been down there yet, so maybe I could look down there sometime soon.

Forget my picture, your gallery is fantastic, definitley will be watching your from now on. For lumonosity and saturation masks take a look at this link, theres a bundle of tutorials which have definitley been a big help to me. Hope this helps :)

Much better than before! Those luminosity masks are awesome aren't they? My one suggestion is that it seems overly warm and you might tone the warmth down just a tad but its definitely a great photo!

Thanks man. Yeah there definitley next level and the saturation masks were brilliant aswell. Gonna definitley be using them in all my future post processed pictures. Yeah I'll definitley tone it down. Thanks for the link for the luminosity mask a massive help mate :)
