Re: docklands buildings


Top of Greenwich Park. I know it well.

I'm looking at it on my laptop so not the best way to view I know but it appears it could take a little brightness increase? Perhaps a little dodging on the Queens House as it has recorded a bit too grey.

As Steve says, a bit flat, needs the whites lifting.

i've lightened the front building a bit (queen's house?). i tried it a bit lighter but it stopped my eye going further into the picture - if that makes sense.

Re: docklands buildings


Yep. I think it works a bit better Reg. The difficulty I find shooting from this spot is the way that the building and tree tones render . You needed to lift the front building (it is the Queens House emoticon ) to give it a bit of separation from the mid and back grounds.

What you originally posted is a three layered image none of which is clearly [sign in to see URL] you've slightly lifted the Queens House it's easier to see and starts to build in a bit of depth.

I'd be tempted to D&B the city buildings to seperate them a tad further from each other and one or two in the midground too.

Don't mean to sound overly critical but I think there's more to be had from this.

Re: docklands buildings


Small tweak but worked nicely giving the image a focal point, without it my eyes just wandered around the image.
