I think I prefer this version to the landscape one Katy, Maybe just a few too many fg rocks but I like the use of the larger one bottom right to anchor the shot. I like how the light is catching the edge of the rocks and lighthouse. The mountains layered in the bg and the sky colour too make for an effective shot. There's a few dust spots top right but that's easily sorted - well done!

Some lovely light though Kate. I actually like the composition. Perhaps getting right down onto the ground would have made things a wee bitty more dramatic but It is a lovely shot.

Close call between the two, think I prefer this one, like the foreground detail in this one, not too much IMO, quire partial to portrait landscapes ha ha kind of a contradiction! Lovely light too.

Hiya, Me again Wink

I liked the Landscape format one better KT and only because of the same niggle, the middle ground is a tad to dark, the lighting is great on here and I think this image could be improved with a bit of work (now you know better than to ask me how lol Wink ) and it will work a lot better.

Hope you understand all my ramblings KT. I love the images and compositions themselves and Im betting they look different on your screen (well mine always seem to lol Smile )

Well you spotted the biggest issue Smile yeah there are a few too many rocks, makes the image very dark and bottom heavy. If the rocks had much more variation in size shape and form, it could work. As it stands they are quite heavy and dark despite the light hitting them.

There is a line of rocks just below the sweep of the hill. Getting in close to them may of worked as thy are a bit more varied in size.
