Instead of just converting a previous upload from here, I thought I would create a mono from this rather more classic view of Buachaille Etive Mor.

Not expecting great things on here, but I’m really happy with the way it turned out.

If you’ve managed to get past the thumb, firstly thank you and secondly if you go LARGE hopefully you’ll understand why I like it.

Hope your weekend’s going well!

Tip top conversion with masses of tones in it, comp goes without saying!!! Smile

Slightly oversharpened which shows predominantly around the Buckle adge, but hey, web delivery isn't my worry either and I bet this looks sweet in print bud.

Have a great weekend mate,

15 Nov 2008 - 7:14 PMConstructive Critique!This comment was flagged as constructive critique! 

I am not a fan of this composition due to the tree bisecting the mountain - but in this case the composition does work well with the light on the mountain - too many images have a black mountain due to over-gradding. What lets the image down a touch is the blown out sky top left as well as another tree breaking the horizon line left of frame and I wonder if a 10x8 crop to lose the left of frame which is blown out would strengthen the image. As others a great range of tones and the tree cutting the mountain cannot be helped from this viewpoint so all in all one of the best I have seen (with the crop) due to the superb lighting on the mountain. Cheers, Martin

A very beautiful image once again, Paul.
I do, however, have to echo Martin's comment about the sky at top left - I presume that this was shot at the same time as your panorama, when you didn't have any filters with you, I seem to recall. So I think you've done well with the dynamic range. You could maybe pull something back with ACR (or whatever you use).
I don't have a problem with trees bisecting things, though. Imo, I think they add to rather than detract from the composition. And your conversion technique is wonderful - as Mike asked: what technique are you using?
And as ever, you've got the shutter speed absolutely spot on - presumably from your immense amount of practise on the coast!
Congrats on yet anotehr EC - well deserved.
Cheers

Hi Geoff,

I did actually use a 3 stop grad to hold back the sky, and according to the histogram, and my monitor there is no burnout. I'm wondering whether other peoples monitor settings have made it appear otherwise, as there are 3 of you that have mentioned it?

It prints fine(which is the main thing) so to that end I am happy.

I purposely turned my back on hdr around 18 uploads or so ago as I felt I was getting into a bit of a habit, and doing it just for the sake of it,

Again, thanks for taking the time to comment

looks stunning to me Paul, too many people get hung up on what they perceive to be blown highlights (and no I can see detail in both areas) - fast flowing water is white and that shinny object in the sky is bright. This is just how a mono should be, seeing this has got me wanting to get back out again - well worthy of the POTW

wow! POTW! Congrats, Paul!

A quick look at above comments & crits and when looking this on my 22 " Eizo, which I have calibrated with Monaco Optix Pro colorimeter, must say, that those whites look a tad too bright, BUT ONLY a tad! Hope you don´t mind...No harm ment in any way! And as I said earlier, when commenting THIS shot, those fg details are SUPERB!!!

Worth ALL the awards!!! IMHO!

Sincerely

Jouko

Sorry I have nt been commeting much over the past few weeks - byt I was not going to pass on the opportunity to rave about this work of art.


Quote: I did actually use a 3 stop grad to hold back the sky, and according to the histogram, and my monitor there is no burnout. I'm wondering whether other peoples monitor settings have made it appear otherwise, as there are 3 of you that have mentioned it?

Burnout or not, it is very bright. In a colour image the sky would look very overexposed. However (In my estimeed opinion) - you can get away with this much more in Mono - where Contrast is king - so for me it works well.

Super foreground and I like the conversion. I do have a little niggle and it might be OK on your print version but there is a very discernable sharpening line around the mountain that is even more noticeable in the large version.
I still think it's a picture I'd love to have taken nd well worth the accolades.Smile
