Had a chance to get some photographs taken before the sun went and ended up at Mertoun Mill. This shot was taken from the opposite side of the tweed and needed crampons and a ice axe lol, just to stand still.

Shot in raw converted to tiff sharpened and uploaded, hope you like. Cropped some sky to make a better shot imho.

Hello Jon,

I like the composition, but it looks pretty unsharp ?


Hi Jon, as Mark has said, the composition is good but for tsome reason the shot lacks sharpness. Looking at your f number I am wondering whether this is a little large. Large f numbers are good when you want to take a shot of a subject and throw the background out of focus but with landscapes I would use a smaller f number eg f22. I read that you took the shot just before the sun went down and so you may have needed to adjust your film speed setting to allow for that smaller f number.I hope my comments are helpful.

Hello Jon.
Though the focus might be of little concern but it seems as if you shot behind the glasses where the lovely autumn colors are given beautiful soft details.
Best Regards
