WHat an effective processing. The movement of the cloud brings us to a point of no return.
tim hitchins: cheers Mary, wasn't actually the processing it was down to the slow shutter speedsmile but happy you liked it though.

very nice shot, tim. not only is it stunning in terms of natural beauty, but the slight blur in the tree and the clouds converging in the distance really give a strong illusion of movement. a great juxtaposition for a still nature shot.
tim hitchins: most appreciated Alex, had to look that word up lol but now i see it i love your perspective on the image, cheers...tim.
Nature in its spendour! The sky is absolutely fabulous. Great job Tim.
tim hitchins: thank you so much Richardsmile

Superb zoom effect on the sky. Lovely shot mate. What lens are you using here?
tim hitchins: hi m8 it was the sigma 10-20 with the b&w ten stopper on it, the light was so bright i could only get 20secs or so with out blowing everythingsmile cheers Radel.

that is some sky - breathtaking! I like the juxtaposition of the calm looking water and the dramatic sky.
tim hitchins: just found out tonight what that word means Ingrid lol, really happy you thought that, was on our way back from a uneventful walk round a almost dry waterfall when i saw the sky and thought of the possibility of this shot from the lakeside, so glad i am a cloud watcher lol, cheers Ingrid and have a goodnight.

Another terrific image Tim, the slow shutterspeed has done a lovely job with the movement.
tim hitchins: cheers Aussie yes some times it works sometimes it doesn't think this time it didsmile

You really do have the "mad skillz" when it comes to that filter and the 10-20mm.The motion in the sky is amazing, looks like theres a giant hoover behind that hill sucking up all the sky.
tim hitchins: lol mad skills indeedgrin tell you what matey if bonnie Scotland wasn't so far away i would love to come up and go out in search of some ten stopper stuffsmile

This is a really lovely wide angle shot. The composition is very balanced.
tim hitchins: really appreciate your thoughts Martinsmile
It truly makes it look as if the earth is spinning ... Oh oh but it does that anyway ;-) ;-)

This is a great shot tim and was well thought through to get it. richard
tim hitchins: cheers Richard, yes i am a cloud watcher most of the day while laying bricks lol, so when i saw this particular formation on our way back to camp i pulled up at the side of the lake, would have liked something of more interest in the foreground but sadly there wasn't owt, still happy with how things turned out thoughsmile
Very powerful sky Tim, I like the overeall treatment you have given which compliments the sky so well.
tim hitchins: most appreciated Briansmile

Fabulous Tim. I am going to have to get some filters and have a go at this!
tim hitchins: cheers Bill i just think sometimes that they are there to add something that wouldn't be possible without so why not use them if it makes a scene better in some way, bit like what we do in pp but better for me as you see the result there and then, but there sure has been some deleting lol

Flipping marvellous, Tim. In my opinion, absolutely perfect. Angle, composition, balance, colour.....

tim hitchins: well you might be fairly new to SC but seeing your quality shots i know you know a good shot when you see one so i am taking that with a bloody big grin on my face mateygrin

fantastic dad. Really well done.
will bob round tomorrow after work.
tim hitchins: i wont hold my breath lol, cheers sonsmile
I guess you've been playing with this, because there's a zoom effect in the sky, but the lake and hills look very still and serene. Quite effective. Or was this just a slow shutter?
tim hitchins: no playing Ian just a slow shutter speed mate looks quite effective i feel, and cheers Iansmile

Oh wow! Fabalous. I love the fantastic cloud formation wel lanchored by the foreground rocks. You're going to have to tell us how you did this!
tim hitchins: cheers Alan, it was down to the 20sec exposure done with the help of the b&w filter attached to the wide angle lens mate and thats it reallysmile
A likey for me. Beautiful.
