Taken at exactly the same time as my previous Loch Lomond shot, only a day later. Thanks to Paul for a quick tutorial on night shooting. Technically this wasn't a night shot, but still a 2 minute exposure.

Comments welcome.

OK...here we go.

FG's seem to have been a problem for the Loch Lomond shots throughout. So we have a bit of scruffy rock and purplishly blue washy background.

Am I being too harsh?

How do you judge a 2 minute exposure?

For me the rock seems to be lit differently ( or processed differently more likely) to the rest of the scene.

Thanks for the comments.

This is pretty much as shot. It was fairly dark at the time so I took a couple of test shots at ISO 3200 f2.8. I then set the camera to ISO 50, f22 and multiplied the exposure by 10. It's not exact but good enough. I took spot readings of the sky and water and figured a 0.6 grad would balance the two elements out. I'll remember to bring my own rock next year.

Keith - still trying to figure out your last two comments . . . at least there's nothing ambiguous about this one.

Ed, I like the almost surreal light on this, quite dramatic. I have no idea what an FG is either.

Like the colour, Ed, with the green on the rock contrasting with the blue. If it wasn't a "night" shot, then it must've been darned near it, with a 2 minute exposure!

Stunning, deep blues here, Edward. I've got a similar effect through adjusting the white balance to fluorecent, but not to the same degree as this.

Keith obviously looks at things with a far more tutoured eye and I respect his views enormously. But for me this works wonderfully. Love the colour and the simplicity.

This is a great one. Sure it is a little blue, but it is the perfect time of day and it has excellent sharpness and feel.
