Suilven Sunrise by Alex37 Suilven Sunrise by Alex37
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.

Anyway, thumbs up!

You've almost tempted me to go to Assynt in June now instead of Uist :P 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 :P

Strength and determination? I have a 65+10L pack. It all fits in. The camera is in a camera pounch and the lenses in separate lens pouches.

just sayin like, I didn't reckon you'd be upset it's just an obvious comparison to make given they're the same location at the same time ;)

with that said, I definitely prefer your processing/blending of the sun area here..

Nice one, but I think Orca takes the cake from this location. I am wanting to see more FG in yours reflecting that epic sunlight. I do enjoy yours though, has a somewhat aerial feeling to it :)

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?

Yeah I think mine is more realistic and that is why I think the processing is better. He still has the better shot though. The processing tutorial is on the way, I just need to find a spare few hours!
