As usual Don you have created another excellent and pleasing image [Photograph just doesn't fit] from a normally just average scene. Great Job. Thanks for the detailed explanations that we can learn from. Dave

I really like the composition of this and although not a fan of a lot of HDR works your processing here is excellent. The application of light/dark effects and the details make you feel like your standing there watching the building storm.

Comments: Good picture of the old tired boat. So far I am not a real big fan of HDR pictures. It creates unnatural colors and tints. I do believe that your picture is done well with HDR technique. It is too realistic to have the true painting feeling. And the unnatural colors take away from the photograph aspect. I do applaud your very complete artist notes. Including camera information and camera settings. Thanks for sharing.

Lovely colors, and great composition, I like the boat in the forground, and I especially like the peeling paint on it's bottom. You have lovely depth and an almost fantasy feel. I get thefeel I am having a small glimpse into a hyper real world. Donkeyoatey

Comment from avmurray


This looks fantastic. The day I can produce something like this, I will be a happy woman. I really like the warm golden hue in this image and your excellent use of light. The up side down boat in the foreground adds a lot of interest to this lovely scenery. Awesome reflections from the sky and trees in the Loch. The sky has a dramatic look softened by the yellow light. Your image is also nice and sharp all the way through. You have indeed created a special atmosphere with this shot. Really nicely composed with good balance and DOFF. I was not allowed to give you more than 5 stars.
