Ardnamurchan Twilight

By rowarrior
Well after I got a very highly developed sense of paranoia about my processing skills, based on various comments on here, I actually went out and bought a book on how to do it better. If it still doesn't work I don't want to know, right? Wink

This is the first 'properly' processed photo from my holiday trip up to Mull and Skye, when I spent a night at Ardnamurchan in between the two (those CalMac island hopper deals are great BTW!)

The weather was cloudy in the morning, then started to chuck it down about lunchtime, but by the time I reached the campsite at Kilchoan it had stopped raining, and by 9pm it was a lovely sunset, so I headed up to the Point and sat and read for an hour for it to get dark enough, then toddled down the rocks to take this photo. I think I scared the bejesus out of another tourist when I popped back up in the carpark though, I think he thought he was alone with his wee compact, held at arm's length, with the flash going off!

C&Cs welcome Smile

LOve the composition and the detail on the rocks. Like the way the rocks lead the eye to the lighthouse which then takes us out to sea and back through the image again, neat trick that! I've spent alot of time in the Inner and Outer Hebrides and we do get glorious purples and reds at night.

I have just bought PMorgan's DVD on processing workflow, it's brilliant.
