Glyder Fawr Twilight by Alex37 Glyder Fawr Twilight by Alex37
This view was the goal to shoot on the evening up on the mountain. I'd imagined shooting the view with a sunstar and I executed that shot and was happy with it ([link]) but for me the 10 minutes or so after sunset provided the most atmosphere. I also shot this scene in portrait and as a massive panoramic. One of the great benefits of having a really strong focal point and a dramatic backdrop is it gives you a huge amount of flexibility.

Wow. Is that looking towards Colwyn Bay or Abersoch?

In that case it's Colwyn Bay.

Okay it's Snowdon on the left, Mynydd Mawr on the right and Gyrn Ddu with Caernarfon Bay in the distance :) You're only 180 degrees out :P

Best. No doubt about it. I would have shot another frame cropped below the clouds for a completely different atmos but I guess you could crop if you wanted that.

Apart from the Castell y Gwynt shot this is my favourite too. I tried the crop but didnt like it. Try it and I think you might find the shot becomes plain but that's just my opinion :)

Plain(er) yes, simpler, easier to grasp, more direct, to the point. I like it but I love it this way too.

mmm I don't think that's the reality actually, I think if you cut the sky out the image loses a lot of context
