    Echo Point lookout

    Echo Point lookout, Katoomba NSW. Directly to the left, is where the Three Sisters are. I feel this is an overlooked area, hoping I managed to capture some of its wonder.

    Re: Echo Point lookout

    I LOVE this part of the country. I lived at the foot of the mountains for 30 years and didn't take as much advantage of the mountains as I should have. Growing in Penrith I guess I just took it for granted they'd always be there and they are but I moved away

    Nice photo none less well done.

    Great detail in the clouds. Another one of these shots without a single point of interest but it works overall as it illustrates the vast spacious bushland between the ranges.

    Yep, lovely cloud formation and scene but would like to see the foreground lightened a little.

    Re: Echo Point lookout

    Thanks guys. I was a little concerned that I overdone the clouds? This one wasn't a keeper for me, more just practice, I might put a grad filer over the bottom half and bump up the exposure I little over the foreground and re-post.

    This was a 6 image stitch (all the rage for me at the moment ) but I wasn't entirely happy with the shadowing it left through the middle of the image. does anyone have any pointers?

    The back ground shadow doesn't look out of place. The middle ground shadows could be easily removed by cloning nearby scrub over them.

    Just a quick fiddle.

    Cloned out mid ground shadows, made duplicate layer and increased levels and saturation on foreground. Painted back the background as it was. Small file at low def. makes it harder but still not too bad.

    Yeah huge difference. Might make an attempt tonight. I haven't really played much with cloning stuff, so I guess it's time to get learning.
