Re: The Loch Keeper

Very nice Peter ... looks very like Scolpaig Tower in North Uist.

Re: The Loch Keeper

Nice image B&W works well, confused by title?

Re: The Loch Keeper

It 's truly lovely Peter. The water has a lovely mystical feel in B & W and the composition is so appealing.
I thought the title inferred the tower was the keeper of the loch, as in - standing guard - but perhaps I have got carried away with that mystical feel.

Re: The Loch Keeper

Well it's a loch with what appears to be an old castle keep - hence the title! A beautiful, serene image which perhaps could benefit from a litle more contrast.

Magically pictorial, surreal and poetic.

Re: The Loch Keeper

I love it! Perhaps a tad more contrast as John says and I think maybe cropping out the little inlet in the foreground - draws my eye to it. Otherwise a masterpiece.

Re: The Loch Keeper

Loverly shot Peter though I would prefer it cropped letter box shape to just below the keep reflection.

Spot one, I really didn't expect anyone to get that.

Also tried the crop I agree it works better.
