A fresh new take on one of my favourite hills, wonderful composition. Have looked through your recent shots and I really must get back out there in the winter wonderland that is our north west coast.
Thanks guys - the population of the Outer Hebridean islands is stable, but ageing.....which means that vital community focal points such as primary schools etc are gradually closing down. Rennovation may be possible but would be expensive in order to comply with modern building regs and there is more chance of a holiday or retirement home being constructed. This also would add less to the local community financially and socially than were it used to provide affordable housing for those on the waiting lists in Stornoway.
Thanks for the comments everyone - interesting to hear other views. I did in fact try to capture them earlier so they weren't so near the edge but this is just how it worked out in the end.
Thanks all - the C mount are CCTV/cine camera lenses - an adaptor (cheap on eBay) allows them to fit the ep2 body. Manual focus only and a little bit fiddly but the effects/bokeh are something different. Points taken about the exceedingly shallow dof but I was experimenting to see what happened - the one downside to m43 with it's smaller sensor size is the reduced shallow dof achievable with the normal lenses.
Thanks Phil - yes, when I cover up that end cow the shot definitely gains something. It's frustrating but I can see exactly what you mean once you've said it - just hope I can learn to pick these things out myself. Too used to landscapes where composition and structure follow different rules.
