LOL ... just read your [edited] description ... you allude to, but don't actually mention that you violently hogged the spot, elbowing and kicking everyone else out of the way, those that didn't shift got your tripod legs in their shots or that trained seagull you took with you pooped on their heads.

Next time let everyone have the full facts please Wink

May I ask if this is more than 1 exposure, Rich, as I seeno trace of grads?
sut68 Plus
13 2.0k 76 England
14 Sep 2010 8:17PM
I think I can help you there Cole. It's a single exposure and that's what makes it all the more impressive ... his set up was a combination of hard and soft grads, angled and stacked to make the grad transition barely noticeable.

Looked great on the back of the camera, even better now it's processed ... one I wish I'd taken TBH!!!

I'm sure Rich won't mind me answering for him ... too late if he does Grin

Cracking shot. lighting, composition, colour blends sky and the foreground all good. Nicely taken sitting low or lying on the belly.

Wnderful Richard, I've been here so many times and only have the one sundown shot, from way back. Lovely quiet water in Loch Scavaig and the sunlight hitting The Cuillin, just wonderful.

Excellent Richard, one of the best for me I have seen from Elgol I reckon.
You have arranged four main elements cohesively into the frame all glued by the unobtrusive sea, an image full of variety and interest.

Brilliant.

Yes, I'm well Richard, just revving up for the forthcoming seasons and photo opportunities Scotland has to offer, been very quiet over the Summer months but have big plans for this Autumn and Winter.

Cheers Cole, it's one that I'm very happy with, especially as I've not been out with the camera of late. To come back from a cracking holiday with a shot like this is good enough for me Smile

Glad to hear it John, I'll look forward to seeing your shots, no doubt they will be from far and wide (and from very very high!)

Dead pleased Martin....still am Smile

I came back to this expecting to see more medals attached to it than you'd find on the chest of a 90 year old Russian General.

LOL ... you had us waiting for a few days before posting so I thought it appropriate Tongue

Seriously, I had to wait for the ability to award it mate, but you got it at my earliest opportunity ... was always going to get it this one, top stuff and well worthy of all the accolades [and more].

A super image full of quality, ive sat looking at it for ages. At first unsure of the warm tones / versus cool tones (Caused by angled grads to keep the RH rock details ???). But the more I look at it the more I like the effect. Certainly worth the wait.
