An amazing part of the world and great images. I like #3... which gives a sense of the open space.

Kinbrace, eh . Do you recognise this??? Taken from by the cemetery. Spent a happy couple of hours in the vicinity in June, snapping away. Would love to see some more of yours

A family friend called Stewart Henderson owns and runs this croft call Killcroft ,he's farm manager on Achentoul estate ,used to play football just infront of the graveyard when my brothers and i were kids ,and i fished the river in the background, god that brings back so many fond memories and i thank you for showing me this . Really liking your shot. Unfortunately when i lived there i didn't have any interest in photography , now that i have i'm going to be making the long trek up the road(Kinbrace is about 110 mls from where i live now ) i even have a picture in my head of the shots i'm going to take so watch this space .
Thanks

I like the boat as well
I wonder if your camera is reporting the wrong exposure?
or have you had to do a lot of PP

1/500th at f/14 100ISO shouldn't work even in bright sunlight?

Pentax K-1 + K-5 and some other stuff

I really like #2, but I like the second boat one even more. In both of them the horizon seems a bit lower on the right, not sure if it's an optical illusion or not.
