I really like the way you've included good foreground interest with the snow on the dead heather and bracken, but then you've taken that a sasge further to use it to fill in the empty part of the loch that doesn't include the reflection. A very well thought out and composed shot!
I think the random bloke is OK in this shot and may even help in some ways, plus I don't believe his head position is purely accidental! I understand that OS are gradually replacing all their maps with new photos on the front and they are looking for photos with humans, rather than bare landscapes as before, so this might yet be a winner!
Always a hard call to get the balance right between beach, sea and sky in this type of shot, but I reckon you've done pretty well here.
Leaving Fort William to go to Tuscany and you can bring yourself to say "unfortunately"? It's a fine shot that really captures the scene at its best and the clouds are what give it the drama that it maybe needed. There's also a clarity in the air that is quite unusual for that time of year, so well done for capturing that as well.
Works well Martin, and I'm guessing that the smoke blanks out a fairly dull sky anyway, so that's a positive as well. The signal on the left I'm not so sure of as it is the lightest item in the photo and tends to draw the eye, but then you could try another version of the photo with the signal cropped out and see how that works?
Excellent pose and lighting, plus a really great thoughtful expression that relaxes her face muscles as well. Her skin is perhaps a bit too smoothed out for me, but that's a very personal thing. What that does is to make the wrinkles on her garment more importants in giving an interesting 3D effect with the multiple shadows that give a little bit more texture and depth to the photo. Great shot!

Assynt is an area I know well, but not from high up! Thanks for a new viewpoint so excellently presented. (and the others are great too!)
