I agree this is a stronger composition. I had just written by far my longest comment with some advice for shooting the moors on your previous upload, if you're still interested, let me know. Smile

Beautiful shot Leigh and a great composition.

I thought it would be beautiful and misty over the moors this morning.
But had to make do with Saltburn.

Kind Regards

Nice photo!
Well worth the early start.
Would like to see a bit more space above the tree but otherwise, I think this is faultless!

Good landscape. Interesting comment about the space above the tree, I hadn't picked up on this. We keep learning all the time, that's what is so great about this site.

Hi again Leigh. Right, you asked for it Smile
The moors are a difficult place to capture except when the heather is in bloom when it becomes almost too easy. The best advice I can give is to find a flat(ish) rocky outcrop to use as fg at your feet with the valley opening out beyond that. This does away with the diagonal as you can face directly either up or down the dale. This works well above Farndale but I'm not so sure with Rosedale as it is a far less regular shaped valley. My only other comment is that, imo, the Blakey Road flatters to deceive. Whilst driving along it, it appears to offer many photographic opportunities when, in reality, you need to walk a fair distance from the road to get a really good composition. Says he who can't drag his backside out of bed on a morning. Wink
Sorry to witter on so long but it is rare for somebody to ask for advice on a subject so close to my heart. Smile
Regards,
Dave
P.S. This is roughly what I typed before although, obviously, nowhere near as witty and informative.......LOL Wink

Nice composition and capture, Leigh, the mist in the distance really gives the image depth. Very nice.

Have you considered cropping the left side off to make the image square? I think it would work really well on this, putting a lot more emphasis on the beautiful mist filled valley...

I'm planning on heading down to Saltburn for dawn tomorrow, wish me luck Smile

There is scope here I think Leigh, im gonna say, try a longer lens.
Now they all think im nuts, but it could make a difference, instead of trying to capture the whole vista, seek out the element that sparked your yearning to shoot the scene.
Home in and you will see with fresh eyes.
Gold star for getting up tho

Couldn't agree more also check Adam Burton's images in his gallery for inspiration. This sort of image is high on my list this autumn/winter too Smile

Thanks for the ideas guys.

Steve, I was shooting into the mist later at 200mm. Not sure it'll get on epz, but it did help me see with fresh eyes Smile

Here's hoping for a good one, Den. Think I'll concentrate on trying to get some decent countryside shots over the next week or so meself. Now that really will need a bit of luck! Smile

Very nice shot Rebecca. Lucky you for being out there. I watch this morning's sunrise from the back door step.

GOOD SHOT. Very nice Image Leigh. Well done with the early rise. I watched this mornings sunrise from the top step of my 35 ton forklift truck, stuck on 12 hr shifts again and not getting the time to get out and about as much as I would like to at this time of year. Great work as usual.
Regards Steve.
