Virgin Square, St Monans, East Neuk, Fife. Parked cars usually detract from the scene....but not this time. Used a Tilt/Shift lens, shifted upwards to keep everything true. No filters, no Photoshop, just a customised RAW file.

Dummie Run

Taken on September 5, 2015

Another from a circuit around the Cleish Hills on Saturday evening. The north facing slopes are in deep shade and above the hill fort of Dummiefarline the sun has just set. Over exposed this by +2 stops then manually blended in the sky from three further exposures in different amounts to preserve the highlights.

Storm Light

Taken on August 2, 2015

Along the east pier, St Monans harbour, East Neuk, Fife. Just after high tide. A Lee Big Stopper filter was used to increase the exposure and introduce some reflections from the whitewashed buildings along Mid Shore. The water is turquoise in this part of the harbour due to the concrete slipway. The boat tied up on the right has been holed below the waterline and is partly submerged.
