Nice shot! Pity about the leaves in the corner which I think does not make it a clean image. But gets my click anyway! Smile Ade

Looking at the amount of blue sky, I think the hills and foreground should have more light on them than this. Try masking them off and just lifting the levels a little, it should make a big difference.

As I found out to my cost, an ND grad filter is sometimes essential to prevent the sky overpowering the shot.

Thanks, at last some constructive criticism, exactly what i need.

I've got rid of the tree and lightened the mountains a bit. Its gone really grainy looking though. I think i'll start again from the colour original when I get home.

It's a good shot IMHO - I like the tones on this. I'm not sure if the corner branch adds or detracts, It certainly adds scale.

Thanks Pete, I quite like the branch, as you say, it adds scale.

I used to do a lot of hill-walking up that way when I was in my 20s. This shot brings back memories. Works well in b/w. Bidean nam Bian was my favourite climb, and I just loved "The Lost Valley". Great place. You've conveyed a good and original atmosphere in this shot. Nice one.
