    A great picture Chris! Smile
    I love the strong geometrical elements in the composition and the light is just amazing with such a beautiful sky as background.

    A really original one Netta!
    I think that if you turn it into a black and white image it will have a really interesting abstract feeling Grin

  • Impression

    Thank you Vanilla! Grin
    Yes I remember I was there waiting and waiting and waiting until the light was dim enough to have a good long exposure that would soften the water surface.. luckily in Venezuela you don't get cold weather!

  • Linlithgow Castle, Scotland

    Thank you for your comments! Grin
    That's a great castle here in Scotland, in ruins but the structure is really well preserved and it was also a beautiful sunny day.. So I was looking for a way to capture the magnificence of this castle taking advantage of the strong lighting coming in through the windows and the 'roof'.. I was really lucky to get some clouds in the sky as well!

    I really like the composition of this image and the sky is perfectly expose, so beautiful with those white clouds Grin
    However I think the white balance is a little bit on the green side, at least for my taste, apart from that this is a great picture!

    I really like version 2 because it has a more abstract feeling. The flowers over the black floor kind of make a pattern which I find really interesting

    I love the colors and the rocks!! Grin

    I love version 2 because I can really focus on light and all those shapes!!

    Hi Disee, I know exactly what you mean! Smile
    I've been trying to learn to use those softwares as well, also to get a more 'professional feel' in my images and it hasn't been easy.. But I have found Lightroom to be A LOT more friendly than Photoshop.. So I would recommend to check it out.. Also I bought some Scot Kelby's books on that matter, I have learned a few useful things, but what have REALLY helped me (because of its simplicity) is this website:


    by a photography team called The Mansurovs. They have a lot of photography tutorials and tips that I have found more simply, useful and easy to remember than those of Scot Kelby and it has really helped me to improve a lot my digital photos!!

    So don't feel like you have to limit yourself because Photoshop is so difficult to use and check that website (they have a lot of info about Photoshop as well) and if you have the opportunity I really recommend you to get Lightroom 3. It's amazing all you can do, from setting the right white balance and exposition to eliminating noise, applying graduated filters, and it's not that difficult to learn if you follow the tutorials on that website.

    Keep on photographing whatever you want, because the most important thing that really sets apart great photographers is composition (they all started in B&W film, right?), the rest will come eventually!
