I've got a couple of hundred shots from the weekend, I'm starting to chew through them, here's the first couple. The rounded peak on the left is the Pap of Glencoe, the Loch is Loch Leven.

Superb. The second is particularly hypnotic. Did you use the kit lens?

wow, all 4 are really, really nice! Impossible for me to pick a favorite, or even a least favorite, they're all wonderful!

I think these were all the kit lens (which I bought when no-one was looking ) the last one *might* be the pancake, I'd need to check. But I think it was kit @18mm.

Very nice shots. Very well done. The first and last are wonderful.

Spotted these last night, I think, on Flickr, and fell in love with your West Highlands.
My first dog was a West Highland White.
If I had to choose, I'd choose your second and fourth, though I like them each very much.

I thought I should have a go at Snapseed. So I did. Better or not?

I particularily like the 4th one. The snapseed version is nice too but I prefer the original b&w/sepia. Anyway, all good shots!

Although I do like your Snapseed version...I think I'm still with your first due to its simplicity with less detail showing in the surrounding mountains, sky and foreground...the same for the reflections. Your first has a more meditative air, whereas the detail and more varied tones in your second give the scene a very different feeling. Not that it's a "bad" feeling, it's just different and once I've tasted of heaven...well, you know.
Seriously, Heather, I like both versions very much. If I hadn't seen your first version, I'm sure I would have fallen head over heals for your second... There is much more depth to your second...and that countryside is so dramatic and glorious, I can see why you'd want to show it off more... I just keep going back to the quiet stillness of your first.
What about you, Heather, which do you like better?
You should see me in my "darkroom" going back and forth on my own versions of one of my own pictures...ad infinitum, I might add!
