First of all, it is great to hear from you, Emma. Thanks a lot for your kind words on my new picture.
This is indeed a highly artistic 'creation'. Your bold camera settings have produced an image that appeals to my sensibilities. The dark rock is no doubt of great significance in it.
Thanks and hope to see more of your from now on.

Hello Emma! Amazing black and white seascape. Wonderful island. Superb lightness, excellent shadows. Good contrast. Very good work. Well done!

I had to google the location - my geographic knowledge of Britain is poor despite having lived there 5 years - The waters to the East of Raasay are known as The Inner Sound of Raasay which occupy some of the deepest channels around Britain.
Your image is perfect art, just like a Chinese Stone rubbing! Many date from before the year 1000.
The stronger outer border on top guides they eye past the finer line - straight down to the horizon and the shimmering sea down to the foreground - to be caught again by the fine black line and stopped by the stronger outer line.
I know, what you mean in your notes "not be to everyone's taste". My husband is always very quiet, when I take a photo like your workshop... I have NOTHING AS GOOD as your picture above.
I wish, a could give you two kisses (as a South American member calls them), for your beautiful posting, but it is sad.
Have a nice evening,

I probably don't surprise you if I tell you that I'm on the side of the ones that like this picture very much. For me, it simply is marvellous. And in a way it is similar to my last posting. We both have, in our way, captured a superb lightplay and created a magnificent effect with almost nothing... That's great art, dear Emma, and I would like to congratulate you for this. Moreover, the picture has a well pronounced mystic aspect and invites for contemplation as well as for meditation.

I suppose this is the kind of shot that I would not take as the sharp contrast of light and shade would be a strain for my eyes. However, as you have taken it with a camera that reduces the harshness of the light I find it intersting to look at, both for the pattern created by the cloud shadows on the sea and for the atmosphere that it presents when experiencing the Scottish Highland west coast in the autumn. Though Holm Island (the Scandinavian word 'holm' means this kind of rock) is in the shade it is a focal point in this pleasing composition.
As your photography skills are very high, I presume you must have been on an advanced course!
Thanks and kind regards,

overexposing scene, it suits in my aesthetics, it reminds the effect that we made sometimes with solarize, the forms that it creates the light they are splendid, with this frugal sepia pallet of colours, very interesting beautiful photo!
keep photographing! TFS

The light must have reflected very strongly on the surface of the water..if you had to use 1/6400 sec. I don't use this time even for snow.
The result is very convincing. I like to see the fine gradations of colors towards the background. I also like the WS picture a lot. Almost mystical shot.
I wish you a nice weekend.

Thanks a lot for sharing of this charming picture. I also like to use telelens for landscape. You have reflected light and colour tones and shades are precisely. Sharpness of the image across the whole frame is fine for this subject. WS is also superb as an original image. All the vest and kind wishes.

A very unusual use,at least for me, of the 100-400 zoom,giving a great result on the structure of the water and very good light's capture
TFS and have a nice W-E

This a gorgeous shot. I love the cropped in view, and i particularly like the almost grainy monochromatic effect of the sea.
Of course I like it. This is really a beautiful photo where the colors of the into the sun technique turned out almost golden. I also like the WS version where you show of more of the area.
All the different patches of light and shadow give a huge feel of depth. The single rock gives the photo the finishing touch.
I was wandering if these were the photos you took on your course, but I see that they are. Did it turn out to be a good one and did you pick up any good ideas? (or did you learn something) I am looking for a similar workshop, but I am afraid that the costs are too high compared with what you really learn.
