Excellent composition, shadows, light, subject, etc, etc, David.
David from the Hebrides: Thank you John, and what pleased me most is that this is straight from the camera, untweaked.

Wow David. This is simply stunning. The lack of detail in the banks really draw you into the centre of the picture, and the silhouette of the barbed wire on the fabulous sky & ice...
If I had taken this it would be on my wall!
David from the Hebrides: Many thanks Andy- actually I was toying with the idea of uploading it to SC without a border so it bled into the black background but it didn't do it justice so I had to slip a mount on it!
Great spot, great technique, great image.
David from the Hebrides: Many thanks David....and, surprisingly this is straight from the camera untouched- I am on good terms with the controls at last so "intuitive" shots like this come more easily now- I can say with relief and confidence now that it was money well spent!

David from the Hebrides: Thank you for the compliment Tracy- this is straight from the camera and exactly what was before me.
Some people have already used the word I uttered when this came up David. "WOW" Great picture.
David from the Hebrides: ....and that's what I said when I saw the loch too! Many thanks Brian.
Great capture and the lighting is wonderful. Well done.
David from the Hebrides: Thank you very much Gail- sometimes dramatic winter light is as interesting as sunny summers!
The fences and wires and accompanying reflections are just pure delight. richard
David from the Hebrides: Thank you for the kind compliment Richard.
This is just an exceptional reflection shot. Well done
David from the Hebrides: thank you very much Richard.

Perfect combination of so many ideas - works really well! Subtle and stark at the same time, you certainly picked your time and place ;o)
David from the Hebrides: Thanks Mike- This was on Tuesday, and I was on the way to get my car serviced! You can see the road I was on in a few minutes (Friday!)
