Rannoch Moor Photo Contest Finalist
Rannoch Moor
Rannoch Moor
Manual mode, shutter 6", f/22, ISO-100, tripod, taken 2/12/2007 at 8:57am on a misty morning in the Highlands of Scotland. Since I clearly wasn't going to get brilliant alpenglow on this morning I chose to embrace the coolness of the scene. Enhancing levels in PSE5 brought out the blue just a tad more and Neat Image removed all noise from the loch surface. This is quite similar to another view I took but some people prefer this foreground over the first submission.

Congratulations on the finalist. There is always something you can recover from some images and you found it. The rocks in the foreground added a lot of dimension and depth to the picture. You have a great gallery and thanks for such a nice tour of Scotland. Keep the pictures coming.
