brings back some great memories: loved Zakynthos

It's a nice island, however it was a bit warm for me, meaning we spent more time in the airconditioned room in the hotel than I would have liked. I imagine if we were to go back around October time when it was early 20s, it would be a fantastic place to spend longer exploring and photographing. Plenty of other places I want to visit though, so I suspect it will be a long time before we go back, if ever.

I have been to loads of Greek Islands and to a fair few places on the mainland, Zakynthos remains well down at the bottom of my list of places in Greece to visit.

Most places I want to visit are in the uk. Just wish you could guarantee the weather!

mmmm?

 

HDR?

 

If so a little over cooked, if not may be a little over-sharpened ( on my monitor at least )

No hdr, just processing in raw. Did have to pull the highlights back a fair bit due to the range between dark and light overwhelming the camera. Its all trial and error for me, as I'm trying to teach myself.

If you pull things back too much then you can start to get into an HDR effect, a piece of advice I read was great, once you make an adjustment and you think its right, put it back a bit as that is probably what is right.

 

Good photo regardless.

Good advice, thanks. I'm happy with the framing of the shot, it's a different angle on a popular landmark and one to try again next time I'm down there with the tripod.
