Return to Morayshire, Scotland

  1. I took a drive back up to the Moray Coast last week and was lucky to catch some nice light:

    C&C always welcomed. These are all hosted on Flickr and for some reason I always lose sharpness and notice a shift in colour after posting to there but these should give you at least an idea of what I shot.

    Best Wishes

    Beautiful, Anthony! :Love: Thanks for making my day a little bit brighter...
     
  3. Anthony,

    I really like the 1st image. Kind of surreal the way the sand looks.
    I wish it was a bit larger.

    Very nice series.

    Great Anthony. I think the first and third are my favorites. Thank you for sharing.
     
  5. Hi AP. The first one is fantastic. The rest are also good but the first one is so powerful, it takes away from the others. Great job.

    Anthony, great shots ! I wuold like to see it in bigger size :) Nice colors...
    Did you use grad ND on first ?
     
  7. I find them all very beautiful with excellent visual design. Love the colors too.
    In my book those are all great shots.

    Anthony, terrific shots. It's a beautiful place.
     
  9. Anthony,

    What a lucky guy you are to catch that perfect light.
    I enjoy the pictures very much.
     
  10. Thank you all sincerely for your comments, they are very much appreciated. I can't remember exactly what combination of filters I used for each shot but I most likely used 1,2,3 stop ND grads or a combination of each for each shot except #3 where I used a NDx1000 filter. This was shot early evening and the light whilst nice was still a little strong so I have overlayed the original image with a desat layer and then reduced the opacity on this to bring back some of the colour.

    Thanks for taking the time to comment.
     
  11. great shots anthony, i particularly liked the 3rd shot. very moody and conveys a sense of the cold. great series.
     
  12. Thank you, Shing.
     
  13. Just checking these shots again on my PC and I think I prefer the landscape orientation for the first ?

    Anthony,

    OMG yes! That takes my breath away...

    (And I see you've figured out the size issue. :wink:)
