Glen Etive


Nikon D70 @ 22mm, 1/20 sec, f/22, ISO 200
Previous · Current · Next

Got up at 6.30am today and drove up to Glencoe to get some landscape shots. I spent the entire day there... it was actually quite good being there alone, being able to go at my own pace and do what I want. Having said that, I didn't really come back with many great shots, so I'm not sure what went wrong. Maybe I was just having a bad day.

I literally had to crawl under a massive rhododendron bush to get to this location. It's actually 3 shots merged together.

Hey Mahes,

I'll appreciate any comments, whether they're good or bad - it's the only way to learn. I like the way you comment - it lets me know what you're thinking or how the photo makes you feel. I can't ask for more than that.

Thanks again

Another masterpiece. Very nice and calm. I love how the dark blue sky lifts the green surroundings and the water. Your landscape photos are just amazing.

Sweet shot. Since you said merger of 3 shots, I think you ran into dynamic range issues, the light seems a bit too strong.

Considered GND filters?

hey Obelix,

Thanks for the comments. I shot all of the frames in manual, and was actually surprised that I got the same reading for each of the three frames. So there wasn't a problem in that respect.

Perhaps it is because the shot was taken mid afternoon when the sun was still quite high and bright. I did do some shadow recovery in PS though. Is it the water that you find a little too dark?

I've only got a 1 stop GND filter at the moment, but didn't use it on this occassion.

Thanks for the input.
