braw laddie braw full of tones and hues great detail in the gorse with drama in the sky to finish it all off well exposed and composed Rod you will do for me today

Great comp, Rod, and nice conversion ( if it was a conversion? )
Very much like the veils of rain off in the distance, and the way all the movement in the image leads the eye to that point- the path, tree-line, movement in the heather, the cloud forms. Classy.
Which brings me to the sky. Hmmmm........don't like to be a party poop, but you won't ever get sycophantic bullshit from me, and so I have to be honest and say it's a fair bit overcooked for me , and I dinna gie a toss wat the others say.TongueGrin

AWWWWWWWWWWWww she disnae deserve twae fits up the erse , she's lovely Smile
Aye Alan yer a cunning sorta guy right enough

Good see a lead in placed on the "wrong" side, it works perfectl well. Can see points about the sky but I like the balance of the tree against the black cloud, top RH third. All the best, Si.
PS; John Constables' over-cooked skies sell for 6 figure sums.

This is a brilliant landscape image Rod. You have covered so many aspects well in this; composition, dramatic light, sky effect, fore mid and background interest. Even the cloud positions are perfect around the lone tree. Really impressive!

I like it. Photoshop, over cooking blah blah blah, so what. I'm looking at it on my monitor and it looks great, It's a pleasure to look at so nothing else matters. If it was printed large it may show a few dodgy areas, but on here that's irrelevant. Well worth my UA.Smile

When a saw this first a knew it was a cracker well done my man. The details spot on and the rainstorm in the distance really helps set the atmosphere.

Well done Rod and a think you deserve all the awards and I'm addin mine tae the bunch.
