    Return from Talisker bay

    This is a picture from my March trip to Skye. Talisker bay itself was behind us as we walked back to the road. There had been a heavy shower for about five or ten minutes which had headed off in this direction. I'd appreciate your thoughts on this image as I have some mixed feelings. Shot as a b&w jpg so not a conversion. It has been mildly split toned, otherwise just selective levels work and a quick burn in on the sky.

    It looks a bit heavy to the right hand side. It might look better if this was rendered in a lighter tone. I tried masking it off a bit, but am unsure if it helped.

    Sorry, but I don't rate this as of your better works Zou.

    I would agree with Nimbus that it's too heavy on the right hand side. The image lacks balance.There is something interesting at the end of the road, but it's too far away as things stand.

    A further apology, I really can't see an easy way to improve matters.....but I'd love to know what is going around to the right of the mountain

    Love the puddles and lighting in the background, but I'm with the others on the RHS and particularly blocking just above the road.
