Going to Charlestown - photo spots anyone?

Postby Glyn » Sat Apr 12, 2014 9:30 am

Hi, we are going to Charlestown Cornwall for a couple of days and I wondered if anyone knows of good scenics that are not "up the Zambezi" so to speak. I know Charlestown is good but is there anywhere else near that's nice?

thanks

Ello stranger!

Can't say I've been there myself. You're not far from the Eden Project though which is well worth a visit, also the 'lost gardens of Heligon' aren't far either: http://www.heligan.com

Well I went and got some rubbish pictures. But I was wondering. If you had a pic like this,

how you would crop or colour or both to try to get something useful out of it. If you make decisions about where to crop why did you choose that. I am an engineer and sadly not an artist so I have problems with this.

thanks for suggestions

Why not post a link to the raw file and let's all have a go?

Hi Rich, will attempt it but photobucket wont accept NEF files - will consider options, could dropbox it and invite you if, that is acceptable

nice, what did you do to the first one to get the defined colour like that?

I did this but I think I overdid the noise
