Nice set. Road and Sound for me please.

Can I make a suggestion for the first one, Wreck. The wreck itself and the rocks make for a powerful image, but I think the sky is not doing the image any favours. You have accurately exposed the subject and foreground but that has meant the sky is uniformly bright. A ND Grad may have helped here but failing that you could take a few pictures and underexpose the sky, then do a HDR merge to bring out more detail.

Of course if there is no detail to bring out you will struggle anyway. Perhaps consider a sky replacement ? I had a quick play and came up with some interesting alternatives. Let me know if you would like to see them.

Thanks for the constructive comments Peter, and I agree that the sky (or lack of it) definitely lets the image down. Truth is, that is pretty much how the scene looked, as it was raining and the whole hillside was shrouded in mist until 10 minutes or so before. So yes, an ND grad would have definitely been the way to go, although there still wouldn't have been much detail. I'd originally driven up to Croig with plans to spend some time on the wonderful beach there in the hope of capturing the sea otters I'd seen a few years previously. But given the horizontal rain and lack of visibility I just popped the K-m with the DA 40 in my pocket and went for a short walk to grab a couple of shots of the wreck (which wasn't there previously) before driving back to Tobermory.

By contrast, this is the same spot back in 2016 almost to the day, facing the opposite direction. The wreck would be somewhere on the right where the sun rays hit the road.



And this is the beach I was hoping to see where the otters were scurrying around the rocks and swimming in the sea.







By all means post up your versions Peter. I find I don't have the patients these days to spend too much time PP'ing images beyond cropping and general levels/exposure etc. I tend to just vow to 'do better next time' in a similar shooting situation. For instance for the wrecks down at Salen the following day when the rain let up for a while, I actually got the tripod and filters out

Here are a couple of ideas. I know sky replacement is not favoured by everyone, and I would certainly label any I did as a composite. I have tried to keep the skies in keeping with the rain you had !

Both of these work well, I'd be fooled thinking it was minor PP
All the gear with no idea
