What was the problem?

I'd maybe crop it, take the top 1/3rd off.
But definitely push the contrast up a fair bit. Wd look better I think. Try it, see what you think. Smile

Perhaps less than perfect weather but the low cloud and mist rolling in has softened the forms of the landscape and offered a most atmospheric, if not soporific, image, and with this effect being enhanced by the low contrast.
This is one I like a lot.

Not so much a landscape, more an atmospheric image. As such, it does what it says on the tin. Nice one.Smile

It has enough contrast to show the silhouette of the forest clearly.
Beautiful shot.
I like this. If you think the contrast is right, then it's right. Other peoples' opinions are interesting and useful but at the end of the day this is your work. Si.

a very typical scene in Scotland at most times of the year Rod especially noo its hissing doon here like the atmosphere and the drama of the low cloud and the rolling mist makes it for me nae bad fifer

28 Jul 2013 11:54AM
Its all been said about mood, atmosphere, drama in previous comments; personally I wouldn't change anything in this image.
