Riverside View
Nothing special in this view, I'm sure I must have uploaded something similar before.
But what is new is that i have carried out 99% of the editing in Lightroom, a first for me, so I want your honest, brutal if need be, comments.
Has it worked or should I stick with Ps?

Crikey I saw the thumbnail and couldn't wait to get the image open. For the benefit of some who may not have seen it I think you refer to this image George, which also impressed me.
I've been looking at this and there is nothing that I dislike, it's great, more view in this one with the houses over the river and the embankment this side. The new LED lighting is illuminating the Cathedral and the castle nicely, and there's a dreamy feel to the whole picture, even see some stars.
So in answer to your question George, my opinion is that this is a ten out of ten picture, you are just as good at using Lightroom, very well done.

I like the composition and luv the silvery lighting effect in the larger part of the image George but for me, the orange light around the bridge and adjacent far riverbank just strikes a discordant note and looks at odds with the rest of the image, perhaps it can be tweaked in another version? Personal preference aside, it's still a great image and top marks for trying something different.

Like this a lot, it needs to be view full screen, the long exposure giving the water coming over the weir a softness that is counterbalanced by the pin sharp buildings and the hard white lighting, as to the yellow sodium lighting on the bridge for me it just adds interest to the image. As to your question the image is of a very high standard so Lightroom can only be adding to your skills.

I've seen this appear this elsewhere recently so I'm delighted to see it in far higher quality here. I don't recall seeing a shot from the viewpoint before, though; it's a lovely setting with the weir with the fine buildings strung along the riverbank. I know many people edit entirely in Lightroom but I've yet to find the same level of control as I get in PS. That;s me, though, probably rather than LR. Like Keith, I find the amber lighting on the bridge does tend to stand out and just draws the eye too much. As the man said, though, it's personal preference.

Nothing special?? Get it framed and on the wall.

That is superb George, well edited in Lightroom & you have certainly achieved what you set out to do with the editing. I like how the Castle & Cathderal stand out on the hill in the distance, & the glistening on the water. Love it & agree with Peter get it framed & hung on the wall for people to see when they visit.
