One more impression from Skye...
« on: February 22, 2016, 10:28:31 am »

One of the many great shooting locations on Skye, Elgol offers lot of inspiration at various times of the day and with different tides. I particularly love the juxtaposition of shapes and textures in this image, as well as the feeling of mystery that the hint of fog adds to the great sunset light.

Thanks for viewing! Best,

Beautiful! I really like the shapes and textures as you mention. Since I am not able to get out to great locations as much as I like, I am always on the lookout for shapes and textures in everyday scenes so even great landscapes that include them appeal to me.

Again, great image!

The texture in the framing rock makes this image unique. Excellent job!

Plus, there's a subtle duplication of the rock texture in the clouds in the upper left. Nice!

It is a good shot, but I feel ambivalent about it. Explaining better: I don't know if the shot is about the foreground rock (great texture, as already mentioned), or about the sky/colour/remaining landscape.

In a way, I feel like the foreground is obstructing the view, so to speak; I want to see more of the what is in the background.

Thank you very much everyone for viewing and commenting, much appreciated!  :D

@ Paulo Bizarro: I appreciate your point about the composition, I wanted to make a "window to the landscape" using the beehive-textured rocks in the foreground, which were too good to be passed by, and to make it as balanced as possible with the triangular shapes of mountains and rocks in the background; but I understand it if you feel that they compete too much with the landscape in the back. Thanks for sharing your view!

Best,

Really a spectacular location and photograph. All the kudos to you as are written above.

One concern I have with the image is the artificial-looking darkening of the top left of the photo extending across to the top right: the sky but also the top half of the distant mountain and the top part of the rock face. To me, it appears as a processing artifact.

SoooOoo good. Is there some slight haloing at the top where the rocks meet the sky? Anyway, sooo good, regardless.

Terry, what you are seeing is not a processing artefact, it is the effect of the grad ND I used.

Beautiful.

Thank you Rajan! :)

Maddog, I think what you see it's caused by two things: on the one hand, the sun was setting behind the mountain; on the other hand, resizing jpg amplified the effect.

I agree.

muntanlea, it's the grad ND (see my answer above)

Nice  composition.

Thank you!
