MY 400th UPLOAD!!!

One to hopefully look forward to capturing at the weekend. This was from March, just before the hailstorm hit - - we could see it advancing towards us down the Buachaille. Just had time to hit the clicky thing, then run for cover!

I was trying to achieve a "painted" feel to this, and to get across how black the sky was, with the clouds rolling down the mountain, and how cold the water was - - so comments on whether I achieved my goal are really welcome, plus tips on how too, if you feel I've missed the mark Smile

Reminds me - - off to find my waterproofs, just in case!!! Wink

Enjoy Tuesday evening and the rest of the week, playing bridge toinight, so I'll pop in when I can, Thanks for taking the time to call in Smile

Cheers!
Fran x

Certainly has a feel of some biblical weather approaching.
I wonder if desaturating the water a little might give it a more natural feel.
Not a criticism, just a suggestion Smile

I opened this up & shivered, so I think you have achieved what you wanted Fran....
That mountain really looks bleak & the water looks freezing cold.
A beautiful composition though....

It's a bit too Cyan for me, maybe a cooler shade of blue may have worked better to give sense of the cold. I can see what you were trying to acheive, but just doesn't quite do it for me. I know you will forgive the honest opinion. If not, I'm for it!!Wink

At first Fran i thought it was slightly on the dark side and a bit blue but then read your narrative and realise you have achieved exactly what YOU wanted and not what I wanted and I applaud you for that. Why on earth we all want to take the same bog standard shot is beyond me but fortunately you did not fall into that trap.
