Cheers Louis, Its just a wee processing technique I'm experimenting on that doesn't involve any complicated layers etc in PS, I don't have the PS skills or patience to be proficient in it, in fact I only ever use a few levels selections in Elements 5. Someone kindly commented on a recent shot being 3D like and I think it does have that effect, thats were it gets it's name. If you are interested I'll drop you a PM.

So 3D it is falling out of my screen. It helps that it is one of my favourite spots on Skye, it also helps that the snowline is so low, that the cloud is bubbling up behind and then dropping down the mountainside and that the rocks and grasses have turned gold in the low winter light. A masterpiece.

Thanks Alan, reassuring my images mean something to people and are not just a record of a scene. I only take photos purely for my own pleasure and since I've only taken up photography as a pastime within the last two years, I still regard myself as an enthusiastic amateur..but one day, you never know.
