The Mooring

By almiles    
Sunrise at Loch Morlich by one of the sailing club's moorings (concrete block with hoop) using an B&W ND110. Its been hard to get out with the camera what with the short days and my time passing in a blur of day job with added night and weekend shifts, but I took this en-route home from a night shift. Been enjoying the work on EPZ from those who have made it out this past month though Smile

Have included a B&W version which I also like but could't decide which I favoured best so would be interested to hear people's views thanks.

Both versions work very well, but I think the colour just pips it, but only just! A marvellous shot! Please accept my humble UA!

A beautiful image created by that long exposure but I can't decide between colour and b&w as they're both stunning in their own right.

Was wondering where you'd got to, I thought you might be favouring hibernation with the long nights up there in the Arctic!

No contest between these, or rather.. not contestable. They both stand alone as excellent images, Al. Is the filter an early present Smile The blue and brown tones on v1 are delicious. If anything there is slightly more shadow detail in the foreground rocks in v1. As always I had to find a 'but' - maybe clone out that red boat (?)

Two very good images worth there own uploads.

Really good images Al, I prefer the colour version. Composition is good and a nicely smoothed loch with really good sky interest.

Al this is a cracker. V1 for me as I love the colours especially in that sky. Smile

Two marvellous presentations from this extremely long exposure, smoothing the clouds and water, Alan; I think in this case the B and W version appeals to me the more.

Wow, thanks for the UA Jeanie, that's high praise indeed! GrinGrinGrin
Thanks Andy, Ann, Dave, Geoff and Ronnie! Smile

Dave, it feels more like over-work than hibernation! I've had the ND110 for a year or more but ever sicne Jeanie told me about the merits of a 4-stop ND, I've rarely had the time, patience or need for the 10-stop! Good point about the red boat though, I missed that in my hurried editing last night Wink

A lovely shot, - V1 for me.

The one exposure has added it's beauty to the warm evening light, bet it was less than warm on the loch side Al.

Lovely shot, I prefer the warmth of the colour version.

It was pretty parky, Dougie!
BTW answering from my 'smart' phone but try to get it to quote seemed hard then I found I had quoted you 6 times and possibly even reported your comment as abuse, sorry! Hopefully not but if you hear anything from EPZ let me know so I can straighten it out (embarrassed glowing cheeks)...

I am just catching up Alan. Glad I didnt miss this. I love the colours and the rocks disturbing the smooth water surface. V1 for me definitely.

Thanks Derek, I'd noticed your work was absent from the Gallery pages for a while!
