Trying to think in mono as we have a mono comp coming up soon. I tried to get the tree to stand out in this shot - waited for the wee cloud to drift behind it.

Great shot, think it might look better with the full tree reflection showing ie not cropped.

Hi John,
I definitely agree, but I managed to be a little slopping in my original framing, so I'm stuck now (I'm not *that* good with photoshop!). Thanks for the constructive comment.
Cheers, Jon

Actually that whole island in the lochan is inflatable. Hell of a job to blow it up. Didn't you notice me launching it? The "cloud" is just a huge bit of cotton wool stapled to the back of the fake tree.

Excellent timing with the mist behind the tree and the rest is also quite impressive!
