Even now my camera doesn't shoot square anymore (digital back now), I do like to get some squares out of the captures.

This is one of them. I am not sure though whether it is well balanced or just too much sky. I kind of like it. Let me know what you think!

Hi Wim,

I like the shot, it is a very sunny and pleasant scene to look at, it is also from my area of the world (sort of) and I like the bright yet pastel tones.

I know I will upset the crop cops here, but I have taken the liberty of cropping your square format to what I think is a more satisfying image (to me at least). I really like the sky and the foreground rocks etc, but the far distant islands feel too thin in the shot and need to be brought forward into the scene a little, I feel that cropping into the shot in this way seems to do this, albeit only slightly, but none the less makes the distant islands more of a feature of the shot I think.

A nice sunny day on the islands and highlands, does it get any better? I don't think so  Smiley

I love square format; I still miss shooting with my SQ-a. But in this case I feel like the horizon is just too centered in the frame for my taste.

I like the square-crop version a lot. It gives  some breathing room by including a large sky portion. I also like Dave's version but for me it's not the same image (not that I prefer Wim's or Dave's version over the other).

Thanks fot the input!

I can see the point of the crop, but I'd rather not loose the patches of blue sky higher up. On the other hand, the sky as a whole is may be too weak compared to the rocks.

Well, there is no definite conclusion.  Grin
