Challenge: Leading Lines II (Advanced Editing IV)

Location: The A82 just North of Tyndrum

Changed my original submission to this on Sunday night after a bike ride up past Loch Lomond and Strath Fillan this afternoon in beautiful weather.

Ben Dorian is 1074 feet tall and pretty imposing as you turn the corner after Tyndrum heading up towards Glen Orchy and eventually Fort William.

I parked the bike beside the road and trudged about a mile across boggy broken ground to meet with the hillwalkers path on the other side of the glen. (In very warm weather wearing Biking Leathers and Carrying my helmet and Camera)

There were several versions and I even tried a B&W version. Not fully happy with this but if it scores 6+ I'll be deligted.

This is an area I have long wanted to photograph...as you say Steve, it is very imposing and there are many good pics to be had around the region.

You`ve managed to capture the rugged beauty of the area with this shot.
Good work.

Perhaps a tad oversharpenned but nevertheless attractive with good detail and healthy color.

Very nice landscape I would have liked it to be less flat (lighting wise)

Wow, beautiful place. I think you might have gone just a liiiiitle overboard with unsharp mask tool, but other than that, nicely done.

The leading line isn´t strong enough.....should've tried and accentuate it somehow with either use of creative DOF or post processing. 6

I like the view, but feel that this may be oversharpened.

eyecatching and eye keeping. great composition. maybe a little more saturation to bring out the colors ever so slightly?

The sky is beautiful in this picture, however the foreground seems a little over sharpened to me.

This is a beautiful photo. The lines really do lead you into the picture. It looks a little over sharpened to me.
