Scott's View

By PaultWebster
Scott' View, a favourite view of the Scotish novelist Walter Scott. It was said that at his funeral, his own horses pulled the hearse, and simply stopped here without being prompted, as they had done every day for years before. It's easy to understand why.

I was here last week Paul but it was hazy not nice and clear like this. Nice shot but it looks a little oversaturated, to me, especially the greens and orange/reds. Ken

Good point Ken, In retrospect I may have over tweaked here. Will try a less heavy handed approach. Cheers, Paul.

I could see this picture make one heck of a difficult yet very popular jigsaw, an awesome capture

I prefer V2. The colours are saturated enough to make a good pic without pushing it further.

Best wishes

I'm afraid my first thought was oversaturation, too, but V2 looks much more natural, the shadow areas are more detailed, and the play of light is still obvious.

It may just be my setup, but the foreground generally looks a bit too dark for my liking. Did you use an ND grad for this? (although I'm not sure it would work well as the central peak would be darkened too).

It's a beautiful view and the lighting is lovely over most of the image, it's just that bottom left corner that has an awful lot of near black shadows without much detail.

It's a little too dark in the shadows for me, I much prefer V2 as the colours are much more natural. I have uploaded a quick mod.
