This is a nice composition, but I do have some words of advice. Firstly, go easy on the HDR - the effect that overdoing it has is to make the whole photo look complex and muddy. Tone the intensity of the effect right down so that the foreground is still dark, but has some detail. When the foreground is this unnaturally bright, it ends up just being distracting. Secondly, you need to catch this shot either later in the day or earlier. Overhead midday blue light tends to cool down the colours and make a landscape feel chill and uninviting. This can be good if that's your aim, but here it doesn't serve that purpose well. The warmer tones of late evening or early morning would create deep and long shadows that would model that rugged, beautiful landscape a lot better, and the colours would make the whole scene more welcoming.

No need for HRD here.

Could have used a grad filter to knock back the sky or a piece of black card to wipe upwards during the exposure to achieve same effect.

I used a piece of card a lot instead of grads cos you elminate the light having to pass through a crap piece of plastic.

Nice comp, just needs a proper reprocess

Thanks for the advice, I have actually made an effort to rescue a shot. I did not use HRD but did use Shadow and Highlights. I think I was probably trying to make a silk purse out of a cows ear!

Nice tip with the card, thanks a lot Graham

On the Isle of Bute, a lovely place for coastal walking looking toward Arran
