I have been teaching myself about more of the pp tools available in LR/PS of late. This is a rework of a picture I have posted here before. Dodging/burning can really bring out details in a picture. I also used the dehaze slider, selectively, to let the Priory stand out a bit more.

Very nicely done. Congratulations on the framing, its' very difficult to frame the Priory effectively from that side of the Wey.

Excellent re-work - my initial impression was that it might work better in black and white, but the more I look at those subdued colours I see them as really enhancing the overall look.

I have often thought about braving the cows and possibly an angry farmer to get some close up shots

A beautifully understated, atmospheric and peaceful picture. The reflections seem to draw the eye into the scene and the green at the water's edge subtly underlines the main subject.

Had to look up where it is on the Wey. Interesting that I'd never heard of Newark Priory but it's only 10 miles as the crow flies from where I grew up. It shows how narrow a younster's horizons can be!

It might be safer to get a longer lens ...

That's lovely... particularly like how you've framed the priory emerging from the darkness of the tree shadows... top stuff...

Quite atmospheric, and subtle colours, as said above. Lovely.

You are right to be pleased with that. It's lovely.

Thanks David. It is an older picture. I have not been well since May and have been honing my pp skills rather than getting out and shooting new.

There really is tons of stuff to to learn online. We really are the most blessed generations to be living at this time, although it may not seem so at times.

For this I used the dehaze slider in Lightroom selectively on the Priory. Park Cameras have a good tutorial on youtube if you search.

I have also been dodging and burning my photos using the layers tools in Photoshop.

if ever you guys are not as mobile for whatever reason I really do suggest spending some time brushing up on pp.
