I've been wanting to dramatize this photo for a while now as it had all the potential for it, so here you go :)


-----
Post processing: I combined a lighter and darker image to get the right contrast, I upped the contrast, changed the colours and reduced the noise.
Location: Isle of Skye, Scotland.


My photos are NOT stock. This means I do not want them to be used in any way. I don't mind them being used as a reference for a drawing/painting though: please visit this link for the rules nelleke.deviantart.com/journal…

Obviously, there is tremendous drama inherent in the clouds and beautiful landscaping. I feel that the color enhancements may detract from the overall impact, however. There is an oppressive heaviness to the image, in my opinion. If there was more balance with the warm colors and the flinty blue-greys that exist in many of the other images, I think it might be a better image. One of the gauges I use in making these comments is, would I like to stand on that land as it is? 

As an alternative, if the root resolution of the raw image allows, I would love to see what your image treatment would look like if you could crop down to an image of the building and its immediate surroundings. 

As ever, your images are thought provoking and overall quite wonderful! Thanks as always for sharing your creativity with us! :)

Cropping it was my initial idea when shooting this, but I'm afraid it doesn't work. Just like the colours just don't work with less saturation or other colourschemes. You have to work with the inherent characteristics of the photo itself and then make the best of it. Rest assured that I always try everything before uploading it on dA! ;) I'm aware this photo is heavy, that's why I called this a drama photo in the desctiption.  If you prefer the blue-greys you could just look at the original version of this photo I uploaded a couple of weeks ago :)

Wonderful clouds.

Have you thought of making a B&W version? I believe that you have enough contrast and differences in structure to make it work.

(mag ik' m puur als oefening en mijn eigen plezier hiervoor gebruiken? Ik zal mijn resultaat nergens posten/ publiceren.)

Tijdens het bewerken maak ik een foto standaard zwart-wit om te zien hoe het eruit ziet (ik probeer altijd alles bij het bewerken, je weet nooit hoe het uitpakt! :)). Helemaal bij deze foto natuurlijk, met de zware contrasten is dat het eerste waar je aan denkt. Maar ik vond het wat tegenvallen in zwart wit, minder sfeer. Vandaar de kleur :)

Ik kijk ook vaak naar of een foto er goed uit ziet in zwart-wit, of anders meer sepia getoond. Maar dat komt misschien omdat ik kleur niet zo snap/ weinig ervaring heb met kleuren fotografie. Ik vind het wel leuk om te zien dat je zoveel mogelijk atmosfeer in je foto's probeert te stoppen.


Ik heb volgens mij bij een aantal van je foto's gezien dat je The Gimp gebruikt voor je digitale nabewerking. Dat is een fijn programma, ik gebruik het al jaren. In het begin ook in combinatie met UFraw voor de RAW bewerking.

Sinds een jaar gebruik ik daarnaast Lightroom. Ik weet niet of je nog steeds The Gimp gebruikt, en wat je daarnaast gebruikt om je RAW files te bewerken, maar voor mij maakt Lightroom een wereld van verschil.

IT'S ALL ABOUT SIZE WITH YOU WOMEN ISN'T IT!?! SMALL, SMALL! lol

Actually your title is ironic. The Old Man of Storr gets it's name from the fact that "old man" is a colloquialism. The stack being very phalic that is. The Storr bit comes from the Viking era, when those pesky Norsemen came to the Hebrides to take a wife to settle down in Iceland. Some Settled in Skye and around and left us with many strange place names. Storr means BIG!!!

I know your title refers to the cottage but I thought I should explain the irony.
