    Just a rock...

      No 2 is a lovely intriguing image.

      No 1 says to me - well why didn't you take it from the next outcrop, but it's a nice shot.

        They both work for me, for entirely different reasons of course. THe last time I was on Skye was 12 years ago, far too long.

          I like them both,not sure if the horizon in No1 needs a tweek.

          Well done.

            Re: Skye

            Thanks for the comments. You could be right about the horizon - I have a habit of getting them squint. I thought it might have been the camera for a while, but I think I just have a lopsided brain or something... Maybe some sort of level in the viewfinder would help - when will someone invent that?

            I do actually have another shot of the ridge taken from further round - I'll try and dig it out tonight.

            Cheers,

              Here's the other shot - taken from a bit further round. Not the most interesting shot, but the light was nice (or at least nicer than it was the rest of the week) and I think the horizon's straight

                I like them all and like John it's been too long

                I'm not sure the horizon is a problem - nowhere in that picture are you seeing level horizon. It's mountains and coastlines everywhere

                    So do I. Good eyesight but use a camera and I'm one degree down on the right.
                    The cure is a bubble level for the hotshoe. (assuming you are using a tripod) About 10 from Jessops, etc.

                    Nice light in the pictures & I like the B&W.

                      Re: Skye

                      I really like the 2nd black and white image, lovely texture. That would be great framed on the wall. I know what you mean about horizons, I always get them wrong even when I am mentally shouting at myself when taking a shot. I am very envious of my dads E-30 that does have a view finder level.

                      Cheers

                          Both are very nice images, now I would just loved to have seen a beautiful woman in a long flowing gown or cape standing on the cliff edge in no1, not a lot to ask is it!
