Been playing with old images again, trying to keep my eye in. This is a re-edit of a shot I posted a while back. the original version was pretty terrible, but thought i might try again as it was a pretty spectacular sunrise.

So yes this is a sunrise shot from glen sligachan on the isle of skye, probably my fave location there.

I can see why it is one of your favourite places - I also am taken by the light - colours and the pano format
How about a 30" print for the office wall?

Definitely got potential but a bit hot in the highlights area.
Have you tried the Joe Cornish method of rotating a picture through 180 degrees to highlight any imbalance of tones (Lightroom keyboard short cut Ctrl and [ ). It draws your attention to overly dark and overly bright areas you normally wouldn't perceive when a picture is orientated the right way.

cheers scott, I will have a look at seeing if I can reduce those hi lights, I was trying out a technique that does add a little heat as a side effect, so yeah needs to be applied with more caution. Should have used a better exposure in the first place though I guess. but yeah ill have a noodle when the need takes.

I did hear about the upside thing a while back, but never really got into the habit of using it. may give another try next time. another similar thing I do with is also good for seeing tones, is reducing the size of the image to a thumbnail size. gives you a good overview. (probable didn't do it enough here though :) )
