A very well defined and somewhat bold composition with your primary focus being the heather in the foreground. However it is a composition, which although has grabbed you instantly, it still allows you to take in the full scene. Very clever, very well worked out, processed and presented.

A strong composition again, Ronnie, great lead in through the gap in the heather, the gap in the trees, to the mountain col. It pulls you into the image, beautifully done.

This image stands out for me, it has the essential highland elements and very nicely composed - it makes me want to get my hillwalking boots on and shoot up to the top of the hill!
