Cleverly deceptive, but Ferguson's political leanings tell us to look to the left half of the image. Follow the lead in, a tortuous, hard & cold meander through life, towards the breasts, over the abdomen, & on towards the place of his conception. This is clearly more than just a happy snap, this is the story of a man's search for the warmth of his past.

Great spot to be in, the snow to the left makes a great lead in and the fact that some has melted means the area of the loch is well defined. I wonder if the image needs brightening a bit; the sky is very dark and the snow a bit grey overally. Brightening with curves or levels would likely burn out the sunlit patches of snow but as there is little detail in them anyway it shouldn't matter but it will give the image more impact overall, I might crop the uppermost sky too and therefore focus attention more on the ground and that splendid dappled light. The other option would be to go mono and push the contrast which could give a very punchy image. Huge kudos to you for overnighting and shooting in these 'wintery' spring conditions. Smile

And there was me thinking that if your pal wanted ready-frozen fish he might as well buy Bird's Eye...

Erik's b&w looks good....but no better than your original. ...And Almiles needs to calibrate his monitor. Either that or I need to calibrate mine. Anyway, looks fine to me, with the whites tonally on the warm side of neutral, turning more creamy in the foreground.

Anyway, I think this is one of your best. Muckle braw, in fact.
Looking forward to what else you're going to show from that trip. Good stuff.

Alan

P.S. I see Si's been at the birthday bottle Grin

Cheers Alan , i have mucked about with a B/W version and a brightened colour version . Yeah they are creamy i think thats just the underlying ground giving that hue as the snow melts. Well thats my story lol Grin

I like the place covered with snow and the thawing ice on the loch and the clouds. I also like the B&W version created, even if it doesn't perhaps reflect the real colour of the snow.
