Great SMT2 2009-03-18 9:07

Hello Simon!
I often find an overcast or grey sky to be a favorable situation. As in this shot, it helps to create a subtlety in tones that would be lost on a clear sky day with strong sunlight. Portrait photographers like overcast skies for that exact reason. Your photo portrays a crisp New England day very well. I can almost hear the rushing of the emerald falls in this shot. I think the only way to make it work a little better would be to control the horizon line in the distance to firmly plant the strength of this photo.

Fine Work Simon!

Default To SMT2: Horizon

I meant to straighten the horizon when I was post-processing this one, but I forgot. I straightened it on my local copy and it does make it look better.

I know what you mean about the dull sky allowing more focus on the rest of the tones, I think it would be nice to have something going on above the horizon - not a lot I can do about the weather though.

Thanks for the feedback!
