Hi Frans- Such a lovely evening scene with the man standing in front of the lighthouse at sunset. I like the trees in silhouette, but it's a little more appealing to me to see a bit more detail in the lighthouse. I lightened the building up just a little to see how that worked (attached). The picture with the man in it tells a nice story.   Posted: 03/02/2023 11:18:45

Hi Kirk, Thanks for your comments and suggestions. Your edit makes the whole scene more alive. I came to the location a bit late that time. So, I did not see the sun. It took me years to learn PS to make my dream image into a reality. Please see attached picture. I posted this picture in DDG Group 34 last month.   Posted: 03/23/2023 20:24:46

Hi Frans,
Nice image. I like the colour grading in the sky, the cropping, the silhouette of the man and the trees. I would have like a little more light in the foreground (less shadows?).
Nicely done.   Posted: 03/14/2023 20:13:06

Hi Pierre, I appreciate your suggestion for using Color Grading. This week, I learned more about Color Grading from this article.
I just realized how powerful is Color Grading in bringing the mood of our image.   Posted: 03/23/2023 20:30:13
