Thanks guys, some good tips and pointers Ive taken onboard.
Just a quick query about the adobe 1998, Ive done nothing different to when I usually 'resize' and 'save as' for all my shots I post, there is a box to tick/untick for this and usually it stays ticked. Im wondering what the difference is with this particular shot, if somebody could explain that would be great.
I don't tend to use the 'save for web' option as it strips the exif data, and especially for critique I like people to see the settings so they understand more how the shot was taken, if help is needed.
Now Tom, it so happen's that just for you I took the same scene but different shot, in landscape format, as I new you would prefer it.
Same settings in camera, no crops, a bit more contrast boost was needed as I unticked the adobe 1998 box, and sharpened to Stephen's recommendation.
comments again very welcome.
