    Another image from the North of Scotland. I was staying on the East coast but on this day the forecast was poor here but calm and sunny on the West Coast so a 1hr drive across the country brought me here. I am unsure about the crop so any thoughts would be welcome. Ken _DSC3074-1 from laptop.jpg

    I prefer the second crop but it was a hard choice as both are nice.

    I'm definitely leaning towards the tighter crop in the second image. Neat looking place.

    I do find the grasses down in front a bit distracting and might be tempted to crop even more off the bottom.

    Hey Ken,

    This is a tough choice!

    I think I prefer #2 the most, that tighter crop does seem to work. I am a little different than Alan, I really like the grasses in the foreground. I have always found it cool when a reflection is seen through grasses like that. I do think I might clone out that lone clump of grass all the way to left. Something about that seems distracting.

    Thanks Jim I didn't notice that clump and it is very easy to remove. Ken

    Great set, and either is fantastic. I also like the tighter crop a teensy bit more, but it is a close race indeed. The location, lighting, and reflections all combine to make this a very memorable scene you have expertly captured.

    I'd also crop off the grass at the bottom (which is distracting without adding to the image) and to empahsize Liathach and its reflection.
