Waterstein by TobiasRichter Waterstein by TobiasRichter
Isle of Skye, UK
Autumn 2012

With the aim of shooting some Scottish Landscapes in dynamic weather I started my trip to Great Britain in mid-November and traveled for about 5 weeks trough the country. My journey took me from the south coast of England via Northumberland to Scotland. In Scotland I traveled from the Isle of Skye to Caithness, Torridon and Assynt. As expected the weather conditions were very contrary (snow, sun, storm, rain). The exposed position at the Atlantic Ocean is responsible for the unpredictable weather in western Scotland. Often it’s possible to experience several seasons within one day. Although it often wasn’t very easy to keep my camera dry, I was rewarded with a variety of spectacular sunrises and sunsets.

In the second part of my UK-series 2013, I present the images of the Isle of Skye. The fascinating hills and the impressive coastline are typical for the Scottish landscape. The weather was as expected at the end of November – very rough. During my ten-day stay there was no day without rain and storm. But in the rare minutes when the sun showed the landscape turned into a fairy tale world and I was spectacular rewarded for the long rainy waiting times. I'll upload them here on DA during the next days. English descriptions and more shoots will follow soon!

Schöne Aufnahme ich hätte vlt noch etwas mehr Struktur aus dem Wasser heraus geholt. Feinere Wasserstrukturen würden das Bild sicher zu einem richtigen Eye-catcher machen!

Ich hätte mir im Vordergrund links eventuell noch einen Stein statt soviel "weiß" gewünscht.

Ohne genügend Zeichnung oder Vordergrundelement wäre es für mich eher für einen 2:1 Panoramabeschnitt geeignet.

Ja, dass wäre sicherlich auch noch toll gekommen, ein weiteres Element zu haben. :)

Find ich sehr gut, deinen Einwand.
Kontrast erhöhen und Sättigung verringern... könnte klappen?!

Ja oder halt mit der zusätzlichen Ebene, habe Tobi da schon etwas zu gepostet. :)

Danke. In den du den Kontrast erhöht hättest oder wie machst du das?

Also ich habe da kein eigenes Rezept für, im groben halte ich mich an das Tutorital von Andreas Resch für Wasserstruktur: [link] dann ändere ich lediglich je nach Bild Feinheiten.
Damit kann man schon tolle Sachen anstellen :)
