Hi Richard
Prefer V1 for the extra saturation of colours, do you have Photoshop CS 5!, if so the branches need to go on the left of photo, the content aware tool is excellent for this, if not then it would be up to careful cloning to take them out, they do spoil an excellent landscape.

Hi Richard
Just noticed it is a Panorama, so tree now not so intrusive.

I went down to the SEPA office today to get a better photograph only to find the weather had totally masked the Cuillins. A joy for a time later on.

Hi Richard,

I too prefer V1 however there is one thing that is really nagging about what is a very nice image. Next time you are down there, take some pruning shears and trim that tree will you, it really spoils the whole image for me. I think that the branches that cover the first boat and the upper ones that protrude into the mountains are too far into the shot and sort of block my way through to the rest of the image.

I imagine that you used a tripod for this pano so I can't understand why you would use ISO 400? If you did use a tripod, set the ISO to the lowest setting on your camera because in this case the mountains are very noisy in the image.

Hope this helps

Excellent vista. Very nicely done. I like it a lot. It is a pity about the sky & the branches but thatís the way it goes. I have taken the liberty of making a crude attempt to remove some of the more intrusive branches and uploaded a mod.
