@LONDONER seems that if you end up lowering your exposure the foreground will be too dark but the wall would be just right... Not sure what cameras you have but one that can shoot in RAW and have more dynamic range might solve the problem. I usually tweak a few things on my good photos, seems my Nikon D3100 is a bit flat so I usually boost a few things but I try to keep them within reason. I kind of get annoyed when someone boosts the saturation of fall foliage so much it is unrealistic.

Hi Axel. I am not a photographer! I use two cameras, a small Canon P&S and a small Panasonic P&S and basically I take snaps. Some of them are successful, some not. So, no RAW and very little PP. I don't use Photoshop but a small editing programme that came with my Canon scanner. I too dislike too much PP, it usually ends up looking too artificial. In my photo of the Great Mosque of Aleppo rthe only PP I used was to remove a pair of shoes that rather spoilt the composition.

I gotcha, well I'm no more a photographer than the next person, I have learned a few things and can definitely do some cool things being able to change lenses and what not. The camera I have is fairly old so the cost has come way down and it is a good camera. I used to have a Sony PS and it was just about as close to a full fledged DSLR as you can get and took some great photos.

Well obviously more of a photographer than I. In the pre-digital days I used to have a Pentax and a Nikon and I confess I foud the Nikon totally baffling which is basically why I now only use P&Ss and even if I do say so myself, the results at times are surpringingly good, such as on this occasion for instance:



The concensus of opinion on another forum I belong to was that it was taken with a much more expensive camera than I actually used. ("If you said it had been taken with a 5D Mk III, I would have believed you.")

This is just part of the studded door of the Palace of Meguis Medinilla from 1580 in Úbeda, Spain

On a surprisingly sunny but very cold day in London I went to the Tate Gallery and these shots taken from the Member's Room that I thought were interesting

Nice atrmospheric shot but don't you think that it would have been better without the horizontal cables?

These three photos were taken on a visit today to the Aqua Centre built for the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

What I thought would be the least successful, the first one, I think in the end, turns out to be the most successful. I think that the two figures in the bottom left hand corner make the photo. The other two certainly fit in with patterns and repetitions but aren't so successful.

It seems like an on-the-road kind of picture. Did you expect him to hop off the car and cut down the cables or something?

This is a major problem in my city, now that you mention it, you can hardly take a good picture of interesting architecture without having a bunch of cables all over the image.

No. Post processing was what I had in mind. Like this:
