The Cottage was photographed in Eriskay, Outer Hebrides.

It was processed in Lightroom and Photoshop before being converted to mono in Silver Effex Pro.

Canon 1Dx and 24-105

I really like it. It has a strong composition and sense of depth. The only thing I'd suggest is filtering the green a little more (assuming the grass is indeed green) to make it a little lighter. That would separate it tonally a little more from the building and also slightly increase the sense of space, since we generally perceive lighter tones as being closer than darker ones. That way, you'd end up with the nice dark mountain, the cottage in a mid tonal range, and a lighter foreground. Or you could just leave it as is, as it's a good shot regardless.

Thanks for taking the time to comment Leigh.

I have several versions of this one as you can imagine. I ended up with this as I felt that with the darker foreground, the eye was concentrated on the lighter area around the cottage. I waited for some time for some light to fall on that area on a generally overcast day.

Thanks again for your thoughts.
