    Hi all,

    I was up in Perthshire, Scotland at the weekend, and saw this amazing scene. Had the family in tow, so couldn't stick around for too long :( But, I think I may have got lucky with the light :D

    I'd love to hear your thoughts/suggestions for improvement :p

    Gear - D70, 18-70mm, Calumet tripod, ND4 + ND8 filters to slow the shutter
    Shooting data:
    1. 18mm, f/11, 1/45sec (tripod)
    2. 31mm, f/27, 1/4sec (tripod)
    3. 31mm, f/6.7, 1/60sec (handheld)

    Fantastic shots! I wonder what are those black specks on the water surface in the distance though.. ducks? :)

    Hi all,

    thanks for all the kind comments :)

    I'm not sure what the black specs on the horizon are - they're too big to be ducks; buoys, maybe?

    What do folks think of the frame treatment? Any way to improve?

    Thanks,

    Leeko

    the last one is my favourite! this is definitely my style of shooting. I do love the black dots.. which I think are the ducks in the very far background.

    Very nice shots.
    I prefer #3.
    I don't care for the actual sun in #1. It's placed nicely, but the brightness is overwhelming and my eye always goes back to it.
    #2 is very similar to #3, but the fg is a little busy.
    The tree in #3 gives good depth and doesn't have all the distracting elements in the fg.
    They are all beautiful.
