Good Evening! Almost the weekend! Wink

back to the archives once again for a portraitscapeŠ from last year's Team W.A.S.P's outing to Skye - in particular, Elgol! Smile

Fabulous place, despite the midges with HUGE teeth, must add it to my "need to get back there asap" list Grin

Ten-stop frippery again, this time 89 seconds worth! AND - the clouds played ball, for once!! Tongue

Thanks for your time - appreciated, as always Smile

Cheers!

Fran,

I'm not quite sure what to say, so honesty is probably the best policy. You and others will know that I'm not a fan of motion blur in images. As a thumbnail and looking at the static parts of the image and its composition this is for me, as others have said, "Frantastic". But for me the sky and water do not work - there is a visual clash between ultra crisp and rather soft. I'm sure this is a personal preference thing and artistically I understand that others will differ, and also that experimentation is very important.

Please take this as honest feedback!
Mike

Each to his/her own
and its good to see that mike has gone against the grain.

However i am glad it popped up for me its visually eye catching and the motion against the static and pin sharp rocks work well in tandem, but thats my opinion.
I see it as a clash of the titans and its a battle i love viewing.
Well done mike for speaking your mind and giving your opinion Wink

However mine is im in the love it camp

Sometimes the sky seems to move that fast over the Cuillin Hills, dramatic effect with the long exposure.
