Loch More Weir

By ErictheViking
Taken as one of a test film I ran through a Nikon F55 I was given recently. The only processing this has had is to lighten the highlights slightly otherwise straight out of the camera

Three nice clean images, all well exposed and with good tonal range.
V1 is very striking, and I think your composition is perfect.
V2 also good, though I might be tempted to chop a bit off the bottom....possibly even crop it almost square....maybe...but OK as it is
V3 is my favourite, I like it a lot. Again, I think it works as it is, but I'm uploading a suggested crop, which I think tightens it up and makes more of your subtle composition. See what you think anyway.

Thanks for the MOD Alan it works well. These are test shots so apart from some contrast and levels adjustment they are untouched hence the lack of crops etc.

I agree about V2 a square crop or at least remove the lower weir would make a better shot.

I love the movement in V1, very nicely composed too, my favorite.
V3 also excellent, nice composition and good tonal range.

Three really good ones. V1 is probably my fav but I do like them all.
They appear very crisp to me , more so than some of your previous. Don't know if it's the camera and lens or processing. Compositions are good especially as all are as framed in camera.
I noticed that with V1 removing the sky gives it an almost abstract feel and seems to add to the feeling of power from the weir.
Henri Cartier-Bresson would not allow crops of his framing…………

Thanks for your comments Ian. I think credit goes to the camera for the focusing I was really impressed at the sharpness of the Nikon lens which is is a basic AF lens. Alans crop is similar to my thoughts if I had processed the image in V3. This is my first Nikon and I'm really impressed.
