Play Misty for Me

By MrsS    
Another one from the early bit of Sunday. Not a lot to say about this one (I can hear the sighs of relief from here!Wink)

SO :

* It was early
* There was lots of mist in the valley
* The sky had some nice tinges to it
* The light on the fg rocks and heather was

Have a happy Friday - - try not to work too hard, just ordered my new camera!! Smile

1/30sec @f14.1 ISO100 5 stops of ND soft grad

Thanks for looking - all comments are really welcome, I look forward to reading them all (I really do) - - - - s'pose I'd better pop off and get a life now..... Tongue

New camera... can I have your old one? Looks a stunning setting. Particularly like the trees in the centre of the shot. They look magical with the mist.

Didn't get to see this one until last night, IMO you've saved the best 'til now. Lovely light and recession as Mike says, well processed too.

Deserves to do very well Wink x

A lovely scene Fran. No lemmings around I hope. Not a good time or position to upset people I guess, looking down at that drop over the edge.
Lovely mist and very good detail in the rocks.
Well composed.

Thank you sooooo much, everyone Smile

If I'm totally honest I had to crop it as it did have one of my now infamous wonky horizons! Thought it may have reduced the impact - - - perhaps not Smile

first thoughts were - a bit too much grad used, making the sky go almost black up top. However, because of the smooth graduation I actually think it works really well and makes for a very original image from this well known location.


EDIT: PS the crop works a treat too!

Probably the best I've seen from this little meet Fran.

Light is superb on the f/g rocks, and love the heather in the bottom left corner. Think the dark sky pushes the eye down to where the action is this being the mist and the light on the edge and the trees in the valley.

Personally I'm with you Fran think the dark top actually helps and the composition is spot on. Agree with digicammad. Rather sad but as nobody else as mentioned the film if a quick flick through is right we must be the only ones who can remember that rather good film

don't think I've seen a shot of "the edge" like this - they're usually soooo predictable (he he) but you've got something refreshing and different here - it shows us just how bitg the edge is with those dinky trees in the lower parts of the shot
