I took this view image from Scotland, i was there for my vacation and i enjoyed it but most of the time it is cloudy and rainy, i couldn't get something decent and i felt so frustrated that i can't get something interesting.
i end up to this place and took some shots, i didn't know what to choose but i like this one alot, hope you people will like it, share my dreams.

PB = "Personal Best" i.e. This is now the highest scoring shot in your portfolio.

Nice composition. But I find the lush green colours of the trees on the island don't offset well against the grey clouds and the grey-ish water. Would have been interesting to see what sort of light you'd have got at sunrise or sunset.

However, you got a nice sharp image here and a pretty good score for a Free Study (which are always tough to compete in)

The foreground clump of grass is too centered for me, and is drawing my eye strongly as a focal point, which is too bad. In all other respects a lovely composition.

All the ingredients are there; colour, lighting, mood, but I think its let down by composition somewhat, but a valiant attempt - keep plugging away.

Nice image, the engine on the boat looks out of place, looks like it should have oars, Nice depth to the shot

Seems like its out of an enchanted story book, I love the feel of this! 10

Nice image. Could use a little more contrast to make it stand out.

Nice peaceful scene. The colors are great! Well done.

Delightful pastoral scene. Nice treatment - Very nice treatment.

(so, I'm wondering why the boat is empty and apparently not tethered. but that's part of the fun of this very nice image)

I'd like it much better without the motor ! beautiful image anyway
09/01/2007 12:39:37 AM
I like this shot a lot. I might've cloned the motor out, but that's just me.

Very nice, I would have cloned out the plant bottom center, it distracts a little, other than that great composition, color and lighting, 9.
