Contrary to popular belief, Team W.A.S.P. weren't blessed with gorgeous light all day on Saturday, in fact for the most part it was grey.

We stopped off at Rannoch Moor on the way to Glencoe as there was a little colour developing in the sky ... the light came a little later on and further on!!! A stitch from 11 portrait shots, 'sewn' together in PTGui, trimmed & packaged in PS Wink

Dare I say ... go large for more wilderness!!!

No sign of the tree in this one, so I suppose those puppies are spared [for now]. Also, this just goes to show the OP of the Forum Thread that there are other vantage points here if you look.

Hope your weekend is going well.

Well a lot of praise for this one Paul .. unfortunately for me it's not great. Nowhere near your usual high standard. I was expecting a lot from the thumbnail it has to be said but overall it feels very flat.

As you say not being blessed with great light doesnt help matters and at the end of the day you can only shoot whats in front of you at the time. On that basis Im sure you;ve done well with the conditions ... but it really needs more spectacular light to light to lift it.

The colour in the mid distance sky is reminding me more of colour cast than anything else. Maybe thats not the case but thats the overall feel for me.

Compositionally the right quarter feels barren too ... I dont mind space being included in pano's to give a sense of scale or isolation but it adds little in this case. The formations on the water do lift the foreground somewhat tho and I would probably have liked to have seen a tighter shot rather than the pano used here.

Having read through that it sounds a bit harsh but that's not intentional. Just offering a longer comment than I have had time to do recently ...

Hopefully you'll take it the right way, but if not then it's a bit of bad luck Im having Wink

Cheers Dan for your backhanded praise and your expanded comment Wink It's has not been taken any other way than constructively ... cheers for taking the time.

I do have to address one or two points though. The light at this time was not ideal as you say so the resulting shot was always going to be a little less contrasty than I would've liked ... in fact far less than what we eventually got later on Smile

As far as colour cast goes, any cast that is there is probably introduced by me adjusting the WB but it will be across the shot not just the sky.

I thought about cropping more from the right, as I had already done so on the left, but I decided to keep in the grasses just to expand the scene a little. Having been in this area yourself you know how much of a desolate wilderness it is and that is partly what I wanted to portray ... if it doesn't work then fair do's and thanks for saying. At present there are 30+ people who haven't clicked or said owt ... so I thank you for at least saying so!!!

People normally get a recommendation from me for such constructive critique, but as you don't permit them on your shot ... ya ain't getting one LOL Tongue

Enjoy your weekend all ... even you baldy Wink

I can see Dan's point of view, but then this is taken in what is the norm for conditions up there (probably!). Detail acoss the scene is outstanding....and while it would look better with light on it....it gets my vote Wink

I have to disagree with Dan about the space on the right, as for me, it does give a sense of the feel of the place. Never having been there, a tighter shot just concentrating on the water itself, would not convey this feeling anywhere near as well.

As it turns out I was not frequent enough with the filter cleaning, so most of my shots are splot damaged.
