    Ciao cara Lisa,

    I note your misgivings about your composition in this one. Actually, I thought initially that the composition was fine but then, after reading your comments, my first impression on looking at it again with a more critical eye was that there was perhaps just an excess of fairly featureless sky.

    So I've done a very quick workshop which consisted simply of cropping off at least half of the sky and just a tad off the bottom of the picture.

    See what you think. I rather suspect that this is pretty much in keeping with your idea of converting this into a "panorama" type image. And, of course, I've not cropped anything at all from the sides.

    Un abbraccio,

    Giovanni.

    Here our helicopter has landed in the north part of the Schuchert valley and our pilot is walking back to it holding a half-bottle of Scotch whisky which we had given him as a gift. We were now faced with a 40 mile walk to Scoresby Sund.

    In this closer view of the west side of the monument you can see, specifically, the image of Queen Philippa of Lancaster, second from left, the mother of Henry the Navigator and the only woman depicted on this monument.

    Again, this picture was taken on Kodachrome colour transparency film 49 years ago.

    Taken from pretty much the same viewpoint as the main picture but this time looking more to the right to include our little two-man tent. This was also taken later in the day and the sun had lowered in the sky and was only able to illuminate the very tops of the mountains, the lower parts being shaded by the mountains which you saw in the left of the main picture.

    Bonjour Denis,

    I hope you don't mind, but I have done this very quick workshop on this picture in an attempt to lighten some of the very dark shadows.

    First of all, I opened your picture in ACR, reduced the contrasts a little and also reduced the darkness of the shadows. I then opened it in the "normal" Elements window and applied a layer mask and selectively lightened the face and legs of the man. Other than that, nothing else.

    I hope you don't mind, but see what you think!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    The Headstone on the grave of John Craig who died in 1742. He was apparently a local farmer and is depicted on the reverse of the stone in rather fine formal attire, attended by his children. Presumably he was quite a wealthy man. This stone appears to have stood the test of time very well and there is also some evidence that, like many statues of old, it might well have been painted originally.

    Hello Stephen,

    I hope you don't mind my "playing around" with your lovely photograph!

    I thought that your scanned picture looked just a little "soft" and so I opened it in ACR in Photoshop Elements 11, slightly increased the sharpness and contrast then opened it in the "usual" Photoshop Elements window, slightly darkened the sky selectively and also slightly increased the contrast and colour saturation in the foreground. Then resized it to 800 pixels wide because pictures wider than 800 pixels seem to get "cropped" when placed in the workshops in the "new" version of TE.

    Again, I hope you're not offended by my efforts but I just couldn't resist "having a go" at this lovely photograph!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Seen from another viewpoint, the wheel is now in mid-rotation. The top of a boat can just be seen in the caisson sitting in the circular opening on the right while the caisson on the left contains only water.

    The closed off end of the aqueduct leading to the Union Canal can be seen at the top.
