...a bit of extra effort with the colours, contrast blending and some dodging & burning, and here we are. I'm pleased with the result it remains to be seen whether you do.

Nice work, although I'm not so sure about the darkening around the edges - possibly a little overdone? (Especially in the URC)

The sky is fantastic - a very atmospheric & moody shot - goes to show that in a place like Calanais it's the place and not necessarily the lighting that is special.
Nice colours in the grass too,

Ian.

That bit of extra effort has produced a great image IMO - like the details and tones in this, complemented by a great sky.
Well captured and processed.

I agree with the comments about the sky, especially the top right corner, it's a side effect when you use the clarity slider I will be more careful with it's use in future, maybe use it in steps, watch this space.

I rather like the slight vignetting, it gives the stones a theatrical presence, enhances their drama.

It'll do for me, too, Dougie. Not a place I know (one day...) but I have the distinct feeling that, while there is nobody to be seen, it has a thousand presences all the time.

It does feel like that Bill, the 3 of us were well spaced across this area and it was very quiet, you can talk yourself into feeling watched, who knows? But it is there.

It's certainly different for you, Dougie. The treatment introduces an added element of drama (especially in the sky) which certainly complements the scene.
