Back at Loch an Eilein yesterday and playing about with the ideas Dave (Whiterose1) and Richard (DicksPics) put forward (simplify foreground and using rule of thirds) after my last upload from there. It was a very different morning, the mist just got thicker after this until no sunlight was visible on the far shore at all. My other learning point was that since my wellies leak, I may as well wade out as far as I can coz I'll be getting wet anyway! That certainly avoided overhanging branches. Grin Hope you all had good weekends.

That is a very beautiful and evocative shot Al, really like it. Oh and much kudos for braving the cold, dark waters of a Scottish loch. Who knows what lives in there......

Works really well Al. Super dreamy effect with nice vignetting in the corners to provide focus to the "mysterious" island. Great shot.

Phil.
