    On the computer screen I can't tell that much. Like the first composition best although if possible would have moved the trees slightly to the right as you did in the second image. Great image!

    Not so much for the details in the snow but because of deeper blacks I prefer the Efke version

    My other thought is an early-morning re-shoot of this sometime with a slightly longer lens (500mm should do it) and better light from the rising sun, since I'm aimed roughly west. I was thinking of Michael Kenna's work when I shot this, and here I was going for the look of his silhouettes in snow images.

    For me, plastic is the elephant in the room - we still produce, purchase and discard plastic items by the mega ton, every day.

    Our children's children will wonder what on earth we were thinking of.
    Hi Peter,

    Thanks and totally agree it really is a beautiful sight.

    Damn shame about the plastic waste. Honestly, wasn't that bad when we were there. Some waste around the bothy but maybe what you say was just the tide bringing in stuff that shouldn't be dumped in the sea?

    Re: Large Format Landscapes

    Two more from Skye, Scotland. Taken last autumn on a wet, low cloud sort of day which was pretty common! A very familiar location - Fairy Pools - but we got a little bit away from the human motorway in the end (in photo 2 at least). Both oroginally colour images but just didn't work for me that way, so converted to black and white. I shot some black and white film too....just waiting to get it processed.

    Meeky: Very nice shots. Conversion looks great from color. Nice tones. Contrast. Clear. Pretty scene.

    +1!! Especially the second has a wonderful depth in it, I guess through a combination of the slope upward and the diminishing depth of field.

    Re: Large Format Landscapes

    Thanks Alan, Kevin and Otto!

    Otto - maybe. I don't tend to analyse my images too much (not that clever!), but I am drawn to certain features/shapes and I like the second photo more. It has a nice bottom left lead-in curve, loads of triangular shapes going on (riverbed, waterfall bit and the mountain) and that's what attracted me to the scene.

    Cheers

    Graham

    Graham,
    I like both of them ... perhaps the second one a little bit more ... we have been there, too!
    A lovely place!

    Yes that’s how I work too, photography is and has to stay intuitive I think, but one can still speculate about why it worked out so well. I never saw such a sharp positive from a color negative btw.
