Eilean Donan0090-95HDR

Late Spring afternoon view down Loch Alsh towards Kyle of Lochalsh and the Skye bridge. I've wanted this shot from high above the loch and castle for some time, since it is different from the usual tourist ones and the effort getting it is repaid by the fantastic perspective. Unfortunately the high tide necessary to isolate the castle island and the crescent shaped Eilean Tioram beyond, coincided with the approaching sunset which meant I had to resort to the use of the dreaded Photoshop HDR option to try and keep some detail in the water while keeping detail in the land. I've tried not to produce the typical HDR look and get something more natural. Will take this again when the conditions are more favourable
