A fantastic sunset on Loch Tay overlooking the Crannog.

Managed to get the 10 stopper out even though it was tricky shooting direct into the sun,

cheers

Tidy shot indeed mate, like it. That 10 stopper certainly worked its magic too.

This crannog had naturally featured often in recent days, but this must be one of the very best shots of it: composition, lighting, colours.....a;; superb. Very well deserved UA too.

The long exposure makes it appear that the light is coming from the island, nicely composed Richard.

Striking image of light coming from behind the trees.

I'm curious why a 10 stopper was used?

Was that to lengthen the exposure deliberately in order to soften the water?

I wonder what it would have looked like without the ND filter and everything frozen?

10/10.

Hi Graham, exactly that, the water was choppy and I wanted to soften it. The clouds were moving pretty swiftly too which always looks good when caught on a slow shutter speed.

I do have shots without the 10 stop filter and will post them in due course.

cheers Smile

Cloud movement can indeed look good with some movement but usually when its moving towards or away from camera as it is here.

I've seen too many shots when the clouds move across the image which doesn't work so well.

And this viewpoint looks south west which is perfect for capturing prevaling winds.

Coking filters produce a purple colour cast when shooting into the sun but Lee products somehow dont which is what I assume has been used here.

The big stopper has softened out the water well which gives a more complimentary texture to the sky than the chop we were getting at slower shutter speeds so gets the thumbs up from me.
