Another one of the many 'Stupid O'Clock' sunrises on the way to Glen Coe.

I don't normally do landscapes - too much to fit in and risk of wonky horizons.

Thanks to Bex's for finding this spot.

I've uploaded the original - over cooked? Lol . . .

ISO 50, 1.3 s, f22, 17mm
Lee 0.9 ND Hard Grad on the sky and 0.6 Soft Grad on the water. Would have used fill in flash if I'd remembered to bring it with me . . .

Camera:Canon EOS 1-D Mark II
Lens:EF 17-35mm f/2.8L USM
Recording media:RAW
Title:Ben Lomond sunrise

One of the better compositions I've seen from this location Ed and a different colouring than them too.

A pleasing composition, and good use of filters. I like the inclusion of the vegetation creeping into the bottom corner of the photo.

Like the weed and the composition of the subject.....would like to see the original of this as to the eye there would seem to be more than 1/1.5 stop between that there 'land' n that there sky.

You couldn't tell that you normally don't do landscapes - this certainly looks like a good one to me! Quite golden - pleasing tones, and excellent composition. What more do we want? Wink

Thanks for all the comments. It's all Ade's fault that this has been over cooked in photoshop. As promised, I've uploaded a straight raw -> jpeg conversion.

I think we've all got shots as goldne as this one Ed Smile

The temptation to slide the white temp right up is hard to resiust isn't it Smile

Classy landscape either way - it's the shape of the forground rock that works for me - it's all pointing the right way - even the crack in it's helping.

Will have to do a really over-done one for tonight's post! Smile

Ed, who says you can't do landscapes? This is pure class, it may be slightly overcooked but the composition and light across the mountain more than makes up for that.
