About the Image(s)

These are in the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides which is off the west coast of Scotland and near the top. They were erected in the Neolithic period ie around 3000BC so they are quite old. At the time of our visit is was raining extremely hard and we were saturated. Sequential pair taken on my D850 on the 26th May 2019 at 1/100th at f14 iso 250 with spot metering

Great image. I always wonder how they did it 5000 years ago. If we wanted to do it now days, we could use large truck to move the stones and carve them smooth with lots of engraved images and words. I wonder if these stones appeared a bit smoother back then. It seems like that part of the world was quite active way back then. The depth of the image is real good and shows the arrangement of the stone well. The plain sky accentuates the colorful green of the grass and gray of the stones. A little color in the sky would have been nice, but like you said it was raining hard.   Posted: 09/07/2020 17:11:20

Nice image. The image has nice depth and colors. May be a little adjustments on shadows will further improve the image. The sky is dull due to rain. What about replacing the sky from some other image?   Posted: 09/13/2020 14:20:37
