Upper Loch Torridon

By dalischone  
A shot taken at Torridon, Wester Ross.

I'll upload another in the mod section with a border and I'd be grateful if you could let me know which one you prefer!

I would also love to know the names of the mountains in the shot, I'm sure all you walkers will let me know.

Many thanks for looking.

Tracy

Not happy with the quality of this upload, would be grateful if anyone could tell me where I'm going wrong. Using the landscape setting on my 300D but they always seen to be murky and have lots of noise Sad

Thanks

The border you have chosen does not seem to work but only because the bottom of the image is dark and its difficult to see where the picture stops and the border starts. Maybe another style of border would work better?
The image itself is good. I'ts such a beautiful area to stay.
Jeanie

ps. I have added a mod with a different type of border.... hope you dont mind. Also lightened the bottom of your image a bit.

Many thanks Jeanie for your advice and comments. I tried loads of borders including one similar to yours, so many thanks for taking the time out to do a mod, it's harder to choose which one you like best when uploading!

Many thanks

Nice shot - thanks for you're comments on my pictures(especially the dream - too kind)
It does seem on here its a bit like who you know for the votes - although Im not saying my pictures are great by a long way...but I thought I would get a faster response for some of them!
Oh well its not about votes really - its about learning I guesse and I have picked up a lot of helpfull tips...

I've been going back and forth between your mod and Jeanies. Jeanies probably works better for a broader range of photos, but for this one, I like yours maybe a little better because of the wide view. Still, I do borders like Jeanie's so what can I say? And this view is superb by itself.

Beautiful scenery.

I'm still learning about borders so I know how difficult it is. I don't think the top & bottom black border really goes with this, as already mentioned the bottom does merge with the scenery a little, but you can still enjoy that lovely view.

Tracy I saw your post in the forum. This is a shot that could benefit from a polariser filter. It would elliminate some of the haze, give you a deeper blue in the sky and more contrast with the clouds and increase colour saturation. A polariser is a must for most landscape photography. It also elliminates reflections from water, and leaves etc.

If you decide to get a polariser, any polariser, let me know and I'll give you a link to great instructions on how to use it.
here is what's known as a warming polariser. This is the one Andytvcams uses and wouldn't be without. I'm sure you've seen his landscapes.

Fantastic mod Denny, can really see the difference. Will need to check out elements too, see if I can get the same effect. A polariser topping the list now along with a tripod. Will need to sweet talk the bank manager - lol!

Jeanie's mod on the foreground looks great, colour adjustments by Denny is good too. A combination of both would be perfect, plus the letterbox border. Nice composition.

You can download and install nik multimedia's set of 75 filters for Elements here. This is a free demo, all you have to do is clone out the word demo from any image you use them on. You'll have a ball with these, they're used by pros all over the world.

Tracy, the Hoya filter I linked to is a circular one that screws onto the front of the lens. I believe the Canon 18-55mm lens takes 58mm filters, better check your lens specs. Any brand will fit, but there's a difference in quality, as with everything. I have a Tiffen, which is American, and not coated, which can cause flare and ghosting, but I use the lens hood all the time. I definitely will be getting that Hoya Moose warming polariser soon though, it's a dandy.
here's a writeup on the Moose filter by the man himself.

Its a lovely landscape, as is. I do like it. Tremendous viewpoint. However, I did a Mod with added contrast, fiddle the levels a bit, and messed with the colour balance. Just a bit different.... what do you think.

Many thanks Jim for your mods - I liked the first version - lol! Only joking! Love your mod, looks loads better, especially the sky, great colour. Was it done in PS? Can you do it in elements? Thanks again for taking the time out, much appreciated.

Hi tracy

A great shot. I enjoyed modifying it but I mistakenly upload the original with no changes... hence two mods.

I didn,t notice much noise in the image and thought it was very good. I usually shoot in RAW mode and use AEB (autoexposure bracketing) which your 300D is capable of. Check to make sure your ISO setting is at 100

Click Here for a shot I took about 4 yrs ago in the same area. Unfortunately the camera was only 3Mp

Brings back memories of long days in these hills Tracy, back in the early 80's. A glorious view well captured, such excellent light.

Have uploaded a mod with the names of the hills, you can sleep soundly at night now that your curiosity has been satisfied!!
