I was working in the Lake District at the weekend and managed a couple of shots for myself. C+C welcome.

Great light rays, the shot shows quite a bit of noise, especially as you only used Iso 200 - have you processed it to drken the shadows ?

I used a tiny touch of pseudo HDR which I've been experimenting with, you seem to be able to add noise selectively to a colour or tone although I dont think that was the designers' intention! Here it is untouched apart from the mono conversion, what do you think?

It's a beautiful image Ken. Looks really nice cropped down to a letterbox too.

cool! I love those sun beams!
Actually... I am a personal fan of grainy pics... I say go the other way and add film grain in photoshop!!
Its a nicer pattern than digital noise... and might add a touch to ethereal feel you have going here!
either way... cool!

Ken, I'm pretty sure you can avoid the noise - and have the same result as # 1 if you use some level correction and some dodge and burn.

After all it is a very powerfull shot - lovely light and it deserves some hard work

Great image. Well done . . . for having a job that takes you to such places . . . and lets you play too.

I like the dramatic contrast in the first one. If you can selectively add noise, can you selectively remove it?
You know, the more I look at it, the more I think you could crop out the dark clouds at the top - they seem to weigh the picture down.

I tried cropping this by scrolling the post in Firefox It does seem better with less of the cloud at the top, but I wouldn't get rid of all of it. Having said that, I really like this photo and it works nicely in BW. Great shot.

Best wishes, Kris.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.
