I was really fascinated by the red rocks in the bed of the river Coupall. A view of Sron na Creise and another munro I can't pronounce.

Been on my hard drive since last April but thought it could do with an airing.

Thanks for looking.

Great view, interesting foreground (I share your love of those rocks), and a good sky to go with it all - has to be a winner!

25 Nov 2008 - 12:54 PMConstructive Critique!This comment was flagged as constructive critique! 

truly impressive image, nicely composed, love the crispness of colour, crystal clear water with hints of reflections and the light hitting the side of the mountain. Only slight critism would be that the clouds at the top of the image appear a little dark and almost flat compared to the rest of the image. Well worth an upload tho, and will serve as inspiration for myself if I ever manage to venture out with my camera again Smile

Thanks for your honest opinion of the clouds Ben, I kind of felt the same way as well and even cropped and lightened a wee bit but decided to keep them in at the top to provide a frame as it were.

Cheers Fraser, not strictly HDR in the true sense but just used the Photomatix program to emphasise textures, contrast and colours. Something I can't do in PS.

Possibly the best of many shots from this viewpoint. The compsition and clarity of the water in the f/ground lends itself to pure class. 12/10
