Whilst the central belt was fogbound yesterday, a friend and I headed up for what would turn out to be a lovely day around Rannoch Moor and Glen Coe. It was -9 when we got out of the car and trudged across the frozen bog to the edge of the lochan to get this, but I think it was worth it. Kev wasn't so sure at the time, he's about twice as heavy as me and, well, the bog apparently wasn't that solidly frozen, and his feet got a little damp...

Wow - I'd have trudged through a bog for an opportunity to photograph something as beautiful. Your definition of both background and foreground is lovely and the colour balance is excellent. Thank you for sharing with us.

A good image, worth the trip though I think the vignette is a bit too much in the sky.

Thanks guys.

Thanks John, I didn't add the vignette, it was there from the lens/filters. Any ideas on how to fix anyone?

This is a lovely image, Katy, and one I'd have been proud to have captured. You mentioned the vignetting and I have taken the liberty of trying to reduce it for you, simply by cloning out the darker corners in Photoshop. I don't pretend to be an expert at this but my modification will give an idea of what could be achieved. I'm sure others might be more adept at this than I am.
Ronnie.

Thank you so much to both of you who attempted the mods, I'll practice myself in Photoshop and see if I can get anywhere near that!

Duncan, sorry we missed you, but glad you won!

Superb image,like this one a lot.I also get vignetting like this if I leave a filter or lenshood on and use my zoom at the wide end.

Glad you managed to get up there and find some pink clouds and frosty grasses Katy. The moor can be a cold place when the wind blows out of the east.

Hello my dear - a lovely shot. I have uploaded a mod to address the issue of vignetting.

Create a gradient adjustment layer using black. Reverse if necessary to lighted the corners. Set the style to "Soft light" and reduce the opacity to get the effect you want. Then adjust brightness and contrast to get to where you want to. I'll show you when we're up at the weekend.

Cheers,

Himself

stunning view - I was there on 13/12/09 - mine didnt turn out as good as your though. Decided to climb the Bidean nam Bian in Glencoe later. Well worth it, a super sunset (see picture in my p.f of Munro Magic)
