    Don't really shoot much here - I'd originally I'd gone to Hodge Close Quarry in search of fog, alas there was none so I made the short drive round the corner to Skelwith Bridge where I was greeted to some great fog/light/reflections in the river - this couple came into shot at just the right moment:

    That's a beauty Stuart, really nice. The light is lovely, there's a story and atmosphere, the couple and the coot all add to it. I would personally give it a tad more contrast or darken it slightly but that is very subjective on my part. I wouldn't mind this being mine as it is, it's lovely.

    Cheers Dale I've actually already darkened/dehazed it a fair bit especially around trees - there was a fair bit of mist + strong direct light so the blacks in the scene were really quite weak. Found this really hard to process to be honest, especially in colour.

    Thanks very much

    Much appreciated

    One of your best IMHO. Lovely conversion too.

    Might have timed it to avoid the people in the shot and/or suggestion you clone them out but that's a personal preference. Wouldn't suggest any darker edits - its got the contrast but there are details all over which are a feast for the eyes.

    That’s outstanding. Fantastic atmosphere, light and editing. The people are in just the right spot as well. It’s spot-on I’d say. :clap:
