I've been trying to make some contrast adjustments in different areas, but it is difficult with such a low res file. I felt the original was a bit hazy.

I couldn't resist playing a bit with this image as the various elements in it are so spectacular. I love the foreground and the gleam on the water and wanted to make them the main subjects. I cropped and then squashed the image a bit to simulate a lower point of view. Now there were three main compositional components rather than four as the sky is eliminated. My eyes kept jumping back and forth from foreground to sky and now I feel more settled. Of course now it looks more like one of my more square images whereas I know Paul is often partial to vertically oriented coastal shots... and he is a master of them.

This was the meadow where i found Germander Speedwell. Ancient deciduous woodland borders this field behind this point of view...I've never seen so many Cowlsips in one place before.

I darken the farther field and the trees in order to get purer blacks in the scene. Also tried to increase (just a little bit) the contrast in the FG, brightening up the ice and darkening the grass.

...perhaps a more personal idea on this scene.
Cheers

At first i thought this might be the vertebrae of a type of Sailfish, but on closer inspection, what i thought were 'spines' look alot like hairs, as they cross over each other and are randomly curved.
The object at the bottom right looks a bit like it might be a limb of some kind. The whole thing is about 300mm in length.

shot at home with lammp to one side to create some shadow and definition :o)

Tried to neutralize the strongly red-shifted illumination of a dawn sun to achieve more natural colours...

just cropped to give more concentration on the scene and to avoid that bright sky at the top.

This is the original 'non HDR' version, with a tweak of curves and increase of saturation, resized and sharpened etc...

I darkened the entire photo a bit and added more contrast in the shadows. I also increased some aspects of the saturation and turned down some other. Also added a very slight vignette.

I used Lightroom for the first time and it's a complete different world compared to Photoshop...everything is changed :) I would have liked to do a couple more things, but since i don't have the PS here, i couldn't.

Hope you'll find it useful :)
