    Loch is Scottish for Lake, so I suspect the name of the Lake is Catherine.

    Ah, you mean another lake than Loch Catherine...

    Dom, nice shot. I like the lines in the sand. The sepia looks great here.
    It might have been better if you had waited a bit longer until the sun was lower in the sky, this way the light would have been less harsh, you would have more pleasing colour in the sky.

    Yeah, I meant another lake
    I looked on the map and it turns out that it is Loch Achray.

    And here's my next picture of the day, it is the famous Eilean Donan Castle in Scotland. This picture was created by combining two pictures, 4 stops apart, with the Highlight/Shadow tool of Photomatix:

    We welcome all alike here Gintaras. Very nice picture. Did you mess around with WB on this shot, or is it Topsy Krett?

    Esoterra and Prospero, thanks, frankly I liked the feeling in this picture too. Problem I was taking it handheld and you would be laughing if see my position for taking this pix. I took actually 3 pix of the same situation but only one turned out acceptable. I could not use viewfinder shooting in that position so it was a “blind” shot.

    Esoterra, of course it’s a big secret which only very trusted family members are allowed to know.

    Anyway take a look:

    Sometime ago I discovered that shooting evening or sunset with a Fluorescent light WB can add a bit of artistic look into your shot. In fact that is the only situation where I would use an otherwise useless Fluorescent WB. I did the same trick recently when shooting a sunset, you can see the result yourself (pix below) and hand me your judgment if you like this or not.

    welcome aboard Dom. your photo has great exposure considering the conditions. some suggestions would be try not to get the sun in the shot cos it blows out the highlights alot. its also not very pleasant to look at thru the viewfinder !

    another thing to consider is the rule of thirds. in the case of this photo. try and position the horizon in the top or bottom third of the shot rather than thru the centre. it tends to make for a stronger composition. i cropped it a little so you get what i'm talking about.

    Prospero, you might be laughing at me but... in Dominic shot I liked the blown skilight a lot, it just gave me that unique feeling of the place and the situation.

    Rooz, i am carefully listening to your comment and suggestions you gave to Dom as i need them too.
