Nice composition but a lot of noise in the sky - maybe pushed to far in post processing to pull out detail in the clouds ? Tried to reduce noise in my mod but can't be erradicated completely.

I quite like this shot. You have obviously thought about the composition and it works pretty well. If i had a gripe it would be that the shore horizon line cuts through the large bolder and is pretty central, so maybe repositioning to make more of a feature of maybe one or a couple of the rocks, but as i say this is a minor pick and for me it doesn't really detract too much from the shot. That said it doesn't really grab me and give me the wow factor, so maybe shooting in better light or at better times of the day i.e early morning or late evening. This of course would be if it was possible to do that.

As Andy says there is a lot of noise in the sky which can be pretty easily fixed by running something like Noise Ninja, or better still Imagenomic and then maybe re-sharpening the shot if it isn't too harsh.

Overall though a pleasant scenic nicely done

This picture is from a disc that Jacobs (where I got the film developed) provided, as well as the prints.

The film that I used was rated at 200 ISO, so I can only assume that the process of putting the picture on to the disc has introduced lots of noise.

I feel this shot has potential but doesn't quite do it for me as it stands.

I like teh green landscape which has areas of light and shade but the light on the mountain looks quite flat and lacking in light and shade. Dave's point about about shooting in more sympathic lighting is well made but I accept that this is not always possible.

I also like the rocks in the foreground. Where it falls down for me is that it looks like two pictures with a top and a bottom but they do not fit together particularly well. In other words the rocks do not lead the eye up to the mountain.
