The small version already is a beauty, but the bigger version is awsome.
What a great joy to look at this scene.
Perfect panoramic composition with most wonderful light, layers of the mountains, soft color tones and rays of sunlight.
Excellent work. My compliments.
Thanks for sharing and the very good note.

wow...look at those layers disappearing into the background...very beautiful indeed. The only thing giving the game away that you haven't added a sepia tone here is the pale blue in the sky...a magical atmosphere created by the dance of light and shadow. Great shot, glad you posted it, especially the large version.
Hope you are coping with your ill health ok too...i doubt the weathers helping much eh?

I am really impressed with the quality of this shot Emma. The range in values is quite beautiful as is that wonderful warm sepia tone. I suppose I should do more experimenting with filters. I have the system set up but am too lazy to to use it!!!!!!!! I hope your beautiful images help lift your spirits.

Great shot - really lovely tones and light. The horzintal 'thrust' of the water contrasts really well with the shafts of light.
I have sent you a message.
I just saw on your next picture that you are already 2 years on TN. Congratulations.I do it here, because I wanted to critique this fine picture. With your pictures I always have to look and look again, so it takes some time;-).
What I really like on this picture is the very fine passage from one grey to the other, just like a very subtle painting.Also the beautiful light on the lake and of course your panoramic format.
I hope it will be all right with your health. I cross my fingers.

This is cleverly done!
I imagine the exposure situation is difficult, I often look for this effect in backlit haze or moist air but it is hard to hit the right moment like you did here...
Elegant layers dwindling in the distance, creating a womnderful feeling of depth!

Hello Emma !
Wow, this is amazing ! So beautiul ! The light is really splendid, as well as your composition and POV. I love all these hills disappearing into the light. Beautiful color tones too. The atmosphere, peaceful and a bit mysterious, is gorgeous. Very well done !

Wonderful to see that there is actually more color visable in the LP version than expected. This is the POV that I would have loved to do when we were there. But time and season was restricting us. I read that there are also some wonderful old Oak trees. Maybe I can used those next time when I am there.
This kind of lighting does make the loch look a lot better and more mistical. The gradient silhouttes of the hills are very beautifully captured.

I really like this picture. The different shades and layers of light is fantastic. Together with the sunrays it creates a fantastic mood in the picture! Great job!

Great "darkness & light" composition. I like "layers" like this so much.
