The family and I took a little road trip today to Tennessee. We decided to go to Falls Mill. The mill was built in 1873 and is the largest, working water wheel believed to still be in full operation in the US today. Here are a few shots from the trip.

Loos like a very nice place to spend some time with the family. And I'm glad to see you going out and shooting. Was a bit worried that the upgrading was taking up too much of your time.

Thanks everyone for the comments. I'm a little dissapointed with the first two as they are not as sharp as I would have liked and it seems I have a bit of a sun flare in the center of the picture. I'm still learning so any critiques would be helpful.

It was nice being out with my wife and kids today. We had a really nice time and this place is on our list to go back to in the fall.

Regards,

Love the shots, those old mills are so cool and nostalgic. It appears as though the light might've been a little bit flat. What I tried with one of your images was running a Digital Velvia Action on it, stopping at level 3, but I could'a went to 4 I think. I can send you the DV Action if you wanna try it. You might also try doing a Local Contrast on it too, then sharpen once again. Kind'a hard to tell what you did focus on exactly. Did you have good shutter speeds? There's no exif saved, so I can't use my fave IE tool my EXIF Show.

Patrick, really enjoyed the series! Most of all your perspective and compositions.......... some seem to have a green cast, I played with one, so I hope you dont mind, played with levels and a tad of sharpening :rolleyes:
What beautiful scenery, looks very serene!!! Nice captures Patrick

Thanks everyone for the reply's. Keith your version is indeed better. With yours and Steve's critiques I have attempted to try this again.

The first one was pp'd by me using my standard workflow with the edition of FM's Digital Velvia.

The second one leigh post processed for me.

At first I was going to say I only liked number three, but after seeing some further processing, (don't tell leigh, :wink: but I like your second attempt better) i like #2 tool The crop you did is perfect in my opinion.

Many times I have an image which at first seems eh, and frustrating, but after further work turns into a keeper.

You have two great keepers,

Bravo,

Wade

This is an excellent improvement of a good shot that had some hidden potential waiting to be unlocked. Nice gong Patrick!
