Great comp, Rod, and nice conversion ( if it was a conversion? )
Very much like the veils of rain off in the distance, and the way all the movement in the image leads the eye to that point- the path, tree-line, movement in the heather, the cloud forms. Classy.
Which brings me to the sky. Hmmmm........don't like to be a party poop, but you won't ever get sycophantic bullshit from me, and so I have to be honest and say it's a fair bit overcooked for me , and I dinna gie a toss wat the others say.TongueGrin

Good see a lead in placed on the "wrong" side, it works perfectl well. Can see points about the sky but I like the balance of the tree against the black cloud, top RH third. All the best, Si.
PS; John Constables' over-cooked skies sell for 6 figure sums.

This is a brilliant landscape image Rod. You have covered so many aspects well in this; composition, dramatic light, sky effect, fore mid and background interest. Even the cloud positions are perfect around the lone tree. Really impressive!

I like it. Photoshop, over cooking blah blah blah, so what. I'm looking at it on my monitor and it looks great, It's a pleasure to look at so nothing else matters. If it was printed large it may show a few dodgy areas, but on here that's irrelevant. Well worth my UA.Smile
