Sunrise on Suilven with Meall Meadonach on the right. It was a moderately clear morning but the haze softened the light from the rising sun. *Orca76 has a particularly good (and different) shot taken around the same time [link]
I'm undecided between your two shots. I like the more realistic colour of yours and the less cluttered framing. However I like Orca's less-landscape format. I guess just a bit more sky would be enough. I do like the second cloud in Orca's frame, more sky gives it a bit more breadth.
You've almost tempted me to go to Assynt in June now instead of Uist Wonderful scene. I'd be interested to know how you carried all your photography stuff up as well as the camping equipment? Something I've wondered about often
yes Jakes is better. I was shooting a composition that never worked and I moved onto this one when I saw Jake had found the best comp! As for the processing I think mine is better, but compositionally Jake's is king
You show a brighter sky and colors that look more real, and so you have more details of the peak of Meall Meadonach. With yours I get the impression that it is more subtle. I was wondering if yours has less red, but thought I might be deceived by the more intense sky in Jake's picture. Why do you think your's is better? This reminds me of your idea to do a video tutorial for some donation. What did come out of it?
