Glad you had a good week, I wasn't aware until I saw some of your images, to understand why it's so difficult to get about up here, it's all due to those sloping horizons.

Cheetah Editing

Hello carrrlangas and thanks for your kind comments.

1) Open and edit image in Photoshop to bring out details and lighting
2) Duplicated the layer
3) Applied motion blur to the top layer
4) Changed the opacity to 20% and rubbed out the area on the top layer where the cheetah was
5) Changed opacity back to 100% and looked for any bits which had been missed and then corrected them
6) Flattened the image and did a few final tweeks
7) Finished processing

Thanks,
Planenutter

Yes I was quite pleased with the result that I got!
Would you care to post an image of your effort once you've done it?

Thanks,

Lenses

A few were taken with the 18-55mm and 50-200mm such as the wide angled first photo and the sunset behind the hill.
The others were all take with the Sigma 70-300mm lens which I have found to be an excellent purchase!

Thanks,
planenutter

These were taken with the k-r?

Honestly, I had to make sure I was in the correct forum. These shots are amazing!

Great pictures. When I was in the Navy in the '80's I was in Scotland twice a year at the sub base in Holy Loch (Danoon). Beautiful country. Made it to Glasgow, Edinburgh and a few smaller places near Dunoon.

Loving the purple colour cast on the first one, makes me think of lavender on the Scottish moors. Was it natural light or a filter/WB/PP? Really like the cheetah too.

Hey, planenutter, very nice shots. I'm going to get myself a Kr. trading up from my old K100d Pentax.
For some reason I find that the color in the pictures are sometimes a bit oversaturated and could look more natural.
Probably the camera or post processing can adjust for that. Freddy
