W6w - this is a great picture of a wonderful place. Very dramatic, that path curving up, with that detail of the lake below and a decent sky too. Lovely textures and colours. The best picture I have seen in days (did you get that I like it? smile )
pixelpixie: I got that you like it!! Thank-you for all your lovely comments but what does "W6w" mean?
This is taken with your 50mm on the Mamiya and there's filtration there, so where are your "feature black corners"! smile Actually a lovely shot, giving a very new slant on an often-photographed spot.
If people look at the links they will now see that the lochan and rocks which look so grand in my shot are actually quite small!! smile
pixelpixie: Well, I cropped them off! There was enough space and I like square format and it seemed right to make this one square. I think I had extra space on this one because I was limited as to where to put my tripod... smile)

pixelpixie: Thank-you Alex, I'm pleased you like it. It's on the Isle of Skye, Scotland and it's a beautiful Isle to visit.

Wowwww !!! Genial, awesome, gets passionate this image to me. It seems that I am seeing a Tolkien's scene of the Lord of the ring! I Like more this point of view.
pixelpixie: Muchos gracias Jose. I agree, you can almost imagine Froddo standing at the pinacle looking out for Gandalf!
There's something missing from this, no don't tell me, I'll get it in a minute.....
pixelpixie: He he he he... I cropped them, I had space within my frame this time but only because of where I was able to place the tripod!
WoW. What a beautiful place. Love this capture smile
pixelpixie: Thank-you! It really is quite a magical place.

beautiful shot. Love the leading line up the turret. is that your car down the bottom or does the road go right up close.
pixelpixie: I've remembered now why I had to crop (this had my 'corners' like the other shots), there was a breeze and hair got in on the picture. Good job, as I might not have gone in as tight as this. Yep, that's my car down below but it's not as far as you think!

Gosh, it's so beautiful.

(I had to look up 'Joe Cornish'. Yours are every bit as good!)
pixelpixie: You are very kind Ellie - I think I've been lucky a couple of times!
Lovely composition. The perfect square format - the line from bottom left corner leading my eye into the pic. It's sharp with great green colour - it's a pic for the magazines....
pixelpixie: I love square format and this was perfect for it. I've never submitted anything to a magazine. I might give it a go - thank-you. Jose

I somehow managed to delete your comment from the Lochside post sad but thank-you for your comment, it's become one of my all time favourites since posting it on Shutterchance.
A terrific shot ! Also in the spirit of "the Lords of the ring".
pixelpixie: Thank-you very much! Yes I agree and those are little hobbit houses down by the lake! smile
Ok, IÂ’m going to trow away my digital and get a medium format camera... It looks great!
pixelpixie: Lol! You know looking at a lot of the digital images on Shutterchance, I notice that they are mostly images taken with a zoom lens. It isn't possible to make an image like this with such a lens, it needs to be a fixed optical lens and maybe that's the difference rather than it being film ? Thank-you for your lovely comments,

Artographer sent me here to compare with his shot yesterday. This is gorgeous. I have been here and have a few shots, will have to go back through my archive and reminisce about my time in Scotland.
