    Default Too dark?

    Is this too dark? I'm still having monitor/contrast issues, having trouble with this one.

    TIA!

    Looks a touch too dark in the shadows. Could you lift those a little?

    I've had my eye on this spot for a while, just waiting for some thick clouds so that I could do a B&W here and add that eerie quality. I love the barren trees on this landscape (there are more of them further down) and they seemed to beg for something dark and eerie. I'm really glad that quality comes through in the image, Sadie, thanks!

    Could you combine the right of version 1 with the left of version 2?

    Yes, Amber, what a great idea! I just used a gradient layer mask, took no time at all. What do you think?
