    I went out with my other half on Sunday with the sole porpuse of driving around and stoppig anywhere we thought was interesting and taking photos. I'd just had an ND filter delivered and wanted to try some waterfall shots so we headed into the hills north of Glasgow then kept going as the mood took us. We saw some amazing scenery, had a wonderful lunch, spent a fortune in petrol, got some drastic sunburn and generally had the perfect summer Sunday.

    I didn't want to stick multiple posts up with different shots of the same day so I've put the best of them here. C&C is welcome but don't feel compelled to crit them all, just any you particularly like or think need significant rescuing.

    In chronological order, hope you enjoy.

    Very good job! I am not sure about #2 though maybe if you had the whole frame of the window in the shot.

    Good stuff.. i like them all.

    I love number 7.. i knew it was Scotland somewhere as soon as i seen it (actually thought it was Arran) but i'm guessing Loch Lomond (ish) - Just that old phone box and the telepohne pole next to it with loads of lines going everywhere!

    Only critique is #1 looks like the highlights are slightly blownout? hard to tell on a downsized JPEG though. #8 i like, maybe a tad more sky?.. nothing serious!

    nice work though, look forward to seeing more.

    Man, I wish I lived where you did!

    Great shots, however #2 is a little centered for my liking.

    Cheers folks.

    On reflection (boom boom) it's probably my least favourite of the set. I probably should have got more of the surround in there and I'm no longer sure about that patch of blue sky but it was all about that reflection, I chose symmetry over thirds.

    And yes it's a great place to live when you get the weather, that's usually three days a year. :)

    Not far away, it's Carrick Castle on Loch Goil. It does have that "Local Hero" feel to it. Number 8 was taken at Luss on Loch Lomond.

    1 was taken quite deep in the valley (I almost broke my neck getting there) so there was little sky to be had, even so the cloud cover was murder at that time so it wouldn't have helped. Not sure about the blown highlights but it was one of my first attempts, I think 6 works better. A fair point on 8 though.

    Thanks for looking. :)

    Some great shots in there Resin. I really like #3 & #6. #1 does seem a bit blown out in certain areas, but is still a great shot. Really like that perspective.

    All within a pleasant, short drive. That first fall is in the Campsie Fells near the "Carpark in the Sky". Definitely worth an afternoon. Unfortunately you do get edjits camping up there who can't be arsed taking their litter away with them. It should be a shooting offence to sully somewhere so beautiful.

    Good call, until the forest fires start at least ;)

    Thanks again folks. :)

    Yeah a little bit, I kicked up the contrast really high and increased the colour saturatation to give me more control over the mono conversion which is how I got the sky to look so black. I love CS3's b+w tool. :D
