@ jet_kit, thanks for your comments.
Areas to pay attention to (in no particular order) -
1, get the bl**dy horizon level
2, skys need more drama, perhaps can be addressed with Photoshop as I do have Elements 9 but as yet I have not installed it.
3, look to see if cropping the picture would improve it.
4, look at the complete picture as well as the actual subject.
Hi again Gary,
Install Photoshop Elements ASAP. It's a roller coaster of a ride, but worth every moment. You will find endless advice on using it here on the forum. Take advantage of it.
I recommend that you shoot in RAW (if you don't already). There are several reasons for this. First, it's like a digital negative - you can manipulate it as much as you like in Photoshop, but the original 'As shot' file is still there, so if you screw up (and you won't be the first), you can go back and have another crack at it. Secondly, you get a little more dynamic range with RAW, and we're all looking for more of that!
Keep at it and enjoy the learning experience.
The day you think you've found perfection is the day you stop looking, then someone else will find it and move in front of you.
