This is wonderful.

I'll ask the question I always ask when I see contrast like this - polarizer?

Fabulous shot. I love these landscape details. Great conversion, too. Importance of a decent sky...

Good sky, great conversion & tones - looks like you used a red filter in the conversion.
Disappointingly for some reason I can't get a larger version of this image by clicking on it so I can have a better look at it.

Regards, Ian.

Polariser, coloured, who cares?

A very striking image.

Great tones. I love the light vs shade war going on in the shot.

I hope my initial comment didn't sound impolite.

What I was trying to say was that regardless of the detail of how it was captured, it is an image with impact.

I also admire your eye for composition especially in the portraits and landscapes in your gallery.

Thank you for all your comments on my photo.
I did use a polariser at the taking stage and yellow/red digital filter in the conversion.

I have printed an A3 print and will see how this goes in next seasons club competitions and exhibitions.

Peter, you did not sound inpolite and I agree with you that it is the final image that counts.
Friendly Regards
Graham
