Many thanks to everyone for their comments, votes and appreciation on the lighthouse image. It did much better than I expected it to, but presented me with a little problem: what next?!
As I haven't been out snapping very much of late, and my back-up drive, with two year's worth of RAW and processed tiffs on it, remains un-mended, I thought I'd pull something out from the one archive disk still available to me.
This image is one of a sequence of about thirty jpegs I shot as the sun descended in glorious splendour into Loch Dunvegan on Skye on a balmy summer evening in 2006, with the intention of assembling them into some sort of montage. [I have assembled a vertical montage of six frames which looks pretty cool, but would be lost here given the size limitations.] By the time I'd finished this shoot, my partner, bless her, had showed incredibly superhuman patience and was still speaking to me, helped, not inconsiderably, by having drunk almost all the wine!
Only another sunset shot, I'm afraid, but I thought the colours were spectacular and wanted to keep my hand in with uploading something and prove I'm not dead
Hopefully it won't crash and burn too badly.
No filters, just -3EV dialled in compensation, and a bit of colour and contrast massaging in PS.
I've bitten the bullet on the busted drive and will be taking it to the (very expensive) disk doctors this Friday in the hope they can rescue something. Gulp!
Of course this means that the new PC, new camera and new glass will have to be postponed even more indefinitely. Rats, rats rats.
Any luck you care to wish, or any crossed fingers, will be well received.
Oops! Written a book...again - never could shut up!
Thanks for stopping by.
