On Skye

On Skye

I was only on Skye a matter of hours, going out to the Hebrides, and coming back and on both days we had a tight schedule and a long way to go. I want to go back. Skye has some of the most amazing scenery I have ever had the pleasure to travel thorough.

This is a pretty straightforward shot with a delicate balance between the foreground and sky brightness. I have not applied Graduated Filter effects to this yet. I may go back as time allows and see if I can improve it, but I am pretty happy with it.

Sony DSC H50 at full wide angle. F5.6 @ 1/320th @ ISO 100. Programed Auto.

In Lightroom, I used Recovery for the sky, and Fill light for the foreground. Added Vibrance and Clarity in the Presence panel, and used the Landscape sharpen preset.

From Scotland.
