Nice, Rab. Too bad about the power lines.

Some "Photoshop Terrorists" will cut them before printing  8)

I've seen a movie from Iceland (Woman at War) where a lady does exactly that :-)

I'll ask her

Well before the days of Content-aware Fill, a photographer friend of mine always carried a chain saw in his car in case adjustments were needed before setting up his 11x14" view camera.   :)

Nice scene, Rab.

Lovely scene. Worth putting in a bit of effort to remove the power lines, I'd say.

Yes. But not with a chainsaw.

Of course not. The lady in the movie sends an arrow over the lines with a rope attached to it. Then she goes to the other side and from there pulls the rope, which is attached to a naked wire and short-circuits the power lines.

I prefer "content awareness", doesn't need rubber gloves nor boots  ;D

Lovely tones and presentation and strong composition.. I’m in agreement about the power lines, even the chainsaw, Eric, if only to stir things up a little in what seems like a quaint place.  ;)

My concern lies with the hallowing around the trees. If it’s intentional then, so be it. To each his own. I’m noticing this ‘style’ more frequently, intentional or (in most cases) not.

If it is not intentional, then I suggest working towards adding Clarity/Contrast/Exposure to the sky within the tree branches as well as the larger sky. It’s fairly easily done with adept use of the adjustment brush in LR, especially because the branches are fairly dark and would hide any overlap of the treatment. Alternatively, you could add your ‘sky adjustments’ to a grad mask and selectively  ‘Erase’ the effect on areas you don’t want it, such as the branches, leaving it intact between the branches.

Actually it is a glowing effect created by the discharges coming from the power lines to the trees.  :)

Now seriously thank you for the observation. No it is not intentional.
At first I though it could be an optical illusion but it is really there
Is that what you mean?
I'll try my hand on this following your advice.

I like as it is. If you remove the power lines, do you leave the pylons?

Hmmm... Good observation...

But:
If I'd removed the power lines before uploading the picture. Would anybody have discovered the pylons?

Well, very possible, there are many people here with very good eyes  :)

Ok, I am officially confused. What “hallowing” and what is “hallowing”!?

And so was I. I guessed that the term was coined by luxborealis (s.above his comment) and uploaded a mask where the halos can be well distinguished (s. above my second comm.) and he confirmed that that was what he meant

I'm not acquainted with many English or American idioms but with some detective work I usually get it  :-X

If so, I am still confused. What haloing!?

I thought I am the Nitpicker-In-Chief here, even if I often refrain from posting about it, but looking as hard as I can on the 800px jpeg (not the thumbnail) I still can’t see any in the OP.

I see what you mean. Have you used Clarity in the OP? That would typically cause it.

Looks like it happens in HDR processing. This picture is a HDR

My apologies... autocorrect didn’t like ‘haloing’ (it still doesn’t!) and I didn’t proofread! At times, even the forums would benefit from an editor!  ;)

Yes, automated HDR software are known for all sorts of artifacts, let alone dreadful aesthetics.

However, I fail to see that the image in question required HDR approach. It seems it could be handled by the standard set of LR adjustments, which would give you a better control of halos, among other things.
