I took a screen shot (via snipping tool) and did a quick and dirty crop to change perspective somewhat.

The dark background hills could possibly be some what improved with doge/burn brush or maybe the lighten shadows brush.

I guess the key issue is working out what is wrong with a photo first before you can fix it in post.

a few questions, how long did you spend looking at the scene, what was it that you like about what you wanted to capture?

Perhaps instead of fixing it at post, fix it at the point of capture.

I saw that on facebook and it's very nice. Perhaps Tony should go down and do one of your photo tours cause I am guessing you teach as well?

It's over labour day weekend so typically only need 1 days leave for your average wage slave.

In many ways shooting the same thing gets a bit dull at times, on the other hand teaches you to look at the same thing through different eyes.

The photo in question biggest problem is the fact the at light house rock is same height as the far hills IMHO no amount of cropping will fix that.

Mark there was not reason I shot it, no reason I processed it. I guess I was trying to see as Chris pointed out if I had over done it in post, crap photo is and always be a crap photo.

Ok coming at this one from my current place in life, ie illness has stopped me from doing many things on a permanent basis.

There is a saying that when you are close to death, it is not what you did in life that disappoints you, but what you did not do. I can personally attest to that, there is plenty I would like to do if able. One thing I rarely did in my life was ask for.

So what is the worst answer you could get? I guess a derisory "no". So nothing lost. At best? They say "Yes" so plenty would be gained, and I suspect it would be of great benefit to you personally with your photography.

Try asking for. If you had not asked for your job you would not have it, same with your wife, so ask for the other things you value in life as well.

Also, all learning is good, keeps the mind in tune and that alone would indirectly help you with your job!
