Another beautifully ethereal vision of Scotland, Den.

Putting the gorgeous 3D light aside, I think yesterday's was actually a better composition. The f/g rocks seemed to fit the frame more harmoniously, especially against the distant mountains. Here the left f/g seems a tad empty in comparison.

Although I really don't mean to take anything away from this - I'd have been extremely pleased to have bagged this! Smile

I tend to agree with Bill here Den [shhh don't tell him Wink]

Light aside, the composition of this one has brought the two central rocks together and I'd like to have seen some space between them if that was at all possible. I appreciate that the composition would probably be a little more compromised, but they just niggle me a little too much here.

Even so, if I get any half as good as this then I'm sure I'll be well chuffed Smile

Bill / Paul. I do see what you mean and it isn't ideal having the central rocks intersecting as they are. I think the thing that bugs me about the previous image is the big gap in the middle, it just looks too open and empty. In this one I feel like the rocks lead you into the image a bit more.

Neither is great to be honest. I tend to work very slowly and things happened very quickly on this evening. I was like a kid in a sweet shop running around wanting to grab everything but ultimately made a mess of them all because of my lack of composure. Lesson learned hopefully Sad

I think this is the better composition, as you say the rocks lead your eye up to the light. Very nice

I shall not compete with the above comments re. composition but what I like about this shot is the ethereal quality it has as a result of the long time exposure - both the cloud and sea movements have come out so well. Generally however it is a much cooler image than the last one, but I still like it very much.

Absolute belter of a shot. The light and atmosphere it creates are spot on. Well captured. Chaz.

Yesterday version has a better balance of composition Den, as Bill pointed out there is some empty space on the f/g left side of this image.

You're right about everything happens so quickly with seascape photography, plus your lens/filters getting wet too.

Lots of atmosphere in this photo of a great location.

I like it Den. Sure there is empty space to the left but there is subtle texture in the water created by the long exposure, the light on the Cuillins is special and I love the clouds. Was this with the 10 stop filter?

Hi Paul. No it was only a 3 stop. ISO 50, F16 & 20secs. I'd been using a 6 stop earlier but with the heavy clouds over head it was actually quite dark so the 3 stop was enough at this stage. It was also really windy so 20 seconds was enough to blur things nicely

I'd have liked to try a 6 or 10 stop but there was an almost constant stream of drizzle so it was almost impossible to keep the filters clean for 20 seconds never mind a few mins Sad

No matter how composed and calm I intend to be when setting out from home, when that light comes, it's back to headless chicken mode!!

Got to like this one as well, I wonder if you kept the left side in because of the light source?
12 Apr 2010 10:05AM
Again! Stunning! These would make great backing comps for fantasy film! Freeking super good!

Yes, looking at V2 you suddenly see that V1 is washed out, a little more punch really does the trick!
