September Light

By DonnaN
A picture taken in the Autumn up near Skye - I have shown a version of this on here before, but with nothing new to upload at the moment, I've had a go at re-editing with the aim of changing the light and the atmosphere. Hope you like it! It's one of my favourite places in the UK.

All comments, good and bad, welcome!

(hoping it uploads ok as I'm having problems with Corel PSP - will ask for some help on that on the forum.)

This is a lovely shot, I particularly like the soft pastel shades of colour. It creates a real sense of tranquilty. I hope Lee will be inspired by this landscape taken on a compact.

One tiny suggestion. It might be my aged eyes but is the water level just a smidge higher at the left hand side?

Lovely seascape, nicely balanced with the dark landmasses either side and great light catching on the more distant sea. Very well done, Donna.

Hi Donna

Great image: The things I like = moody sky, balance between lake and sky, simple presentation and your use of light. Things I don't like = actually very little but maybe the image feels a little remote (like Skye I guess) but I feel that I am not engaged - perhaps this because there is nothing here inviting me in drawing my eye into the shot. I think that is what it is.

Interested to see you use PSP - which I use too - what sort of problems are you having uploading?

Thanks to everyone for your votes and constructive comments.

Warriorpoet - I think you're right; they're maybe a slight difference. I can't quite decide if there is or whether it's just a sort of optical illusion because of the light.

Ketch - PSP won't let me access 'curves' at the moment. I can't quite recall the blurb that comes up but it's very annoying, and the second thing is when I'm saving an image post editing it's coming up with a warning saying 'because of the format type it can only save a maximum of 256 colours'...any ideas?

Excellent landscape. I love the sun trying to break through and the reflection it creates on the water. The darker land on either side also makes this very good.
