Even more into the sun than my previous uploads of Loch Assynt from this trip, but I felt it had a certain something Smile Not sure what it was though so tried mono (V2) and sepia (V3) versions in case they worked better Smile

Many thanks for your votes and comments on my last upload Smile

V1 for me Sue, but V2 is also very dramatic in it's mono form. A lovely simple comp', and very very eye catching. A wonderful addition to the Assynt set.

V3 actually works best for me. The silhoouette of the trees is strongest in that version and the vignette takes the edge off the highlight in the sky.

Well spotted Fraser! That was exactly why I tried the mono and sepia versions. I too think V3 works best, although I would otherwise prefer V1.

This does indeed have a certain something - I like the V1 colour/no colour version but to be honest its not the colours or rather lack of them that makes this image a touch special. Its the amazing light and dark effects and the wonderful silhouettes created by those magnificent pines that make it so interesting for me.

For me, V 1 really stands out, the composition, light quality, contrast range, etc. all add up to such a powerful and dramatic image. I also Like the mono and sepia versions, but there is that wee something about V 1, so difficult to put into words, that makes it extra special for me.

V1 for me looks the most lifelike Sue, I looked back and forward between them and I always come back to V1. The little touch of colour adds some softness to a hard image. A hard choice I have to say.

Love this scene, Sue...and like how those trees rise up from that tiny island. Three fine versions, each excellently presented. V1 is almost mono in itself; V2 I find just a little too contrasty, and the trees don't stand out as well against the background. My favourite has to be V3, and though it doesn't look a strong sepia on my screen, it has a lovely warm tone, which I prefer to a stronger effect.
Thanks for your comments, too, on my last upload, it's much appreciated Smile. I do agree about cropping of the shadows, and wish I'd got a bit more of the boats in - cropping them off didn't look right, so left it as shot.

Another gorgeous shot in this 'series'.....great composition & backlighting, but the two things that nail it for me is the silhouette of the trees, particularly against the hills, & the overall 'colour' in V1...if it wasn't for the hint of colour around the sun & on the hills, it almost looks like a 'blue-toned' image, which appeals to me, & creates an atmosphere well suited to the subject....1st class !
