Bridge between lakes at Cusworth Park
Alan commented in this post that he would like to see more to the left - well this is what he would see, a small bridge taking the footpath over the small connecting stream between the upper and middle lakes. Once again, it is a little difficult to get a pov that doesn't include some of the nearby housing estate.

Have you used your editing 'action' on this one? looks like it to me.
Very nice indeed and apart from a very slight niggle about the top left corner, a bit dark, I love it to bits.
The composition is spot on, it's pin sharp, bright and vibrant, luv it, just luv it.

Oops, that should have been cropped off. I took the wrong filter holder with me and the result is that the edges intruded into the frame at the extreme wide angle setting. I couldn't be bother to clone them out so I decided to crop instead - and missed a bit! This was my normal editing George - use ACR tools to get it more or less looking 'right' then into PS to select and the then tweak the various parts of the image until it is what I envisaged when I took the shot. Looking at that old action it seems to apply some B,C & S to the bottom, middle and top thirds of the image, in various amounts, to try to build some extra depth into the shot but it doesn't seem to work very well so I'm sticking to my usual work flow - although I continue to experiment with that too!

I've cropped off the offending corner George, hope that looks ok now.

Spot on Keith, thanks.

Like this a lot it has a bit of a 3D feel to it and and good strong colours, well done

A very good bright image of the lake and bridge with good detail and colours, I am guessing you have added a vignette to this and it works very well especially on the sky and helps us concentrate on the centre of the image.

Ah yes..thank you! A lovely view showing plenty of action on and off the water. I forgot to mention, though, that you need to include a spade in your camera bag - needed to remove that wretched bush just left of bottom centre Apart from that, it looks a delightful place. Thanks for indulging me.

There seems to be mention of the vignette in the top corners, but I presume this is actually some residual shading from the filter holder, which I think is a pity because personally I think it would be better without.
But plenty to look at in the picture with the large collection of water birds, there really is a lot, did you clone some in Keith?
Will keep a look out for the panorama in due course.
