Mull III by Acwraith Mull III by Acwraith
My favourite shot of the whole trip, rather ironically taken on only the second day. Same location as the previous two I've uploaded, just a slightly rockier pool.
I love the kind of impact the distorted perspective of a super wide lens can give, and that's what I was going for here. I just got lucky with the clouds.

Really great shadow detail, and an even better composition using the leading lines formed by the pool in the foreground. I think it's the local contrast made by the lichens on the rocks that really makes this photo ';pop' though. Great job!

Hah, that's what you get for trying to use punctuation on deviantart. It's just an unfortunate shortcut for that particular smiley...
Thanks for the comment and :+fav:, much appreciated :)

Quite a dynamic composition! Nice shot.
Although I think it's a bit oversaturated. It has impact with less saturation too and looks quite more natural then.

Thanks! :)
I must respectfully disagree with you though. The strong blue tint is partly from the ambient light, a cool post-sunset glow, and partly from the slightly blue white balance I set to emphasise this. In short, it's exactly how I want it.
Thanks for the :+fav: and for taking the time to comment, I always appreciate constructive criticism :)

Nevertheless, also if it is intended, to my eyes it is too much. You just did the saturation not in post-processing but in your camera.
I find it looks just unnatural. Of course it depends on what you aim for. I personally prefer it to be closest to what I saw.
My eyes are distracted from the excellent composition and the entire scenery by the (too) strong color.
It's all about what you're first impression is.
What occurs to me is: "Oh what strong colors!" but due to the great composition it should rather be "Oh what a dynamic powerful composition!". For me that was only my second impression.
However that is a personal impression and maybe others experience it different.

Cheers
