    I decided to take my chance on it not raining this morning and went out to have a go at my first couple of landscapes. I went to Wardle Reservoir as it's only a five minute drive from my home! Anyway, even though it was freezing cold I got a few shots showing what's left of the old mill that was at Watergrove before it was flooded to make the Wardle Reservoir. To be honest I have never seen Wardle Reservoir this low before! Anyway here is what I think is the best shot which I am quite pleased with. (I decided that it was better to have more sky in the scene rather than too much (Featureless) water in the foreground) I would be happy to have a few pointers to help me to improve in the future.

    G'day mate

    I think that you've got the makings of a beaut image here
    CC if I may ... a bit of selective [sponge] saturation across the trees and a tighter crop [16:9 shape] of the image to concentrate the eye towards the mill & trees

    Phil, thanks so much, it is a great improvement. It is quite surprising what difference a bit of cropping and a few "tweaks" can make.
    That is the sort of pointers I was hoping for to help me to improve.

    Nice shot and Phil's edit shows that even a small amount of post processing can turn a good image into a great one.

    It is a lovely shot, and Phil's little tweaks have improved it so much.
