    Thanks Dave, have updated the description.

    I am sure I wrote something last night as I uploaded it, but must have cleared it by mistake or something either that or the tiredness associated with two young children is affecting me and I just dreamt that I wrote something. Either way it is there now.

    Thank you for looking and for your comments and mods.

    I do realise that the problem with this photo is partially the camera it was taken with but that was all I had with me camera wise (apart from my phone). When I packed my rucksac in the dark and fog the considerations were about warm kit and rescue kit and so the SLR and tripod etc had to stay at home. By the end of the day I wished I had dumped some of the harness and helmet and other gear and fitted it in instead but that's only because I knew how the day turned out and that I didn't end up hauling a stretcher around as I might have.

    I do know that just being there was not going to get me a great shot especially when I only had a simple compact camera that as far as I have found does not allow me to adjust the exposure manually. The picture is just what I got and having tried, I wondered if anybody on here who has more experience / knowledge of digital processing could resurrect it into something that goes some way towards reflecting the view that we saw. The moment will stay with me as a picture in my mind, just unfortunately one I didn't succeed in getting onto 'film'. I at least have the comfort I had a camera with me, one of my colleagues had the old "wish I had a camera at this moment" feeling.

    Thanks David for your comments.

    The original shot was taken towards the end of the day with little light available and the original is quite dull so I am pleased that I managed to get some drama and contrast into the picture. Since taking this pic I have moved over to shooting in RAW though definately still learning what to do with the images!

    The original shot had a load of the loch in the foreground which I cropped out because it wasn't interesting and whilst thinking about the rule of thirds, I just concentrated too much on the top to bottom thirds and forgot to think about side to side!

    Quote: perhaps a bit of a crop from the blue sky

    Thanks for your comments, would you suggest making it more panoramic style then and reduce the height but keep the width, or crop some of that out as well? As MrBlueSky saays don't get many sky's like that which is part of the reason for being so much of it!!!

    Love the contrast in colours between the trees and the sky. I can't work out whether I would prefer the part of the tree on the far left cropped out or not.
