Quote: A beautiful calming capture with wonderful crystal clear reflections. I might have been tempted to use a polarizing filter in order to bring out the detail and colour in the sky "That's of course you have one"
Although I do have polarizing filters for my DSLR lenses, I don't for the little Fuji and, without TTL viewing, it might be trickier to use one.
I have an image of Chandler's Lane taken the other way round, i.e. from City Quay to the Tay. Chandlers Lane
It isn't as good an image as yours and was taken into the sun, but I think the "old & new" style of buildings is more evident from the other end with the contrast between the white brick on the left and the curve with the old stone on the right. The white brick, as you'll know, only extends part way down the lane. Just a thought.
Quote: So beautiful, would love to walk along the river and through the village, it looks delightful , a great shot
They say "the camera doesn't lie", but it can be used very selectively. Tomorrow I will upload an image showing the burn as it runs through the village and it isn't the idyllic scene that this old bridge might suggest.
Quote: Is that the National poet of Scotland? Now.... how has the artist didn't make him wear a kilt???
Burns never wore the kilt which was an outlawed form of dress after the Jacobite Rebellion. However Burns wrote about the injustice dealt out to John Highlandman whose crime was to wear highland dress and be loyal to his clan resulting in him being deported. The establishment had decreed that it was illegal to wear a uniform signifying membership of a proscribed clan, carry a weapon and be disloyal to the crown.
