view from culzean castle grounds of the island ailsa[ale-sa] craig in the South Ayrshire coast. It was near sunset. The island is thought to be all that remains of a volcano that became extinct millions of years ago.
I had converted it to a neutral colour for my original post, but decided it was much better if i used the original colour. I also cropped the upper part.

Lovely pov over the immaculate grass towards the interesting island. I like the way the eye stops on the objects on the grass, the atmosphere created by the billowing clouds and the soft light.

Hi Manoj, This is a beautifull composition full of the colors of sunset.

Stunning colors. Almost unreal.
The island could not be more centered. Generally not a good thing, but here I have the impression it works very well.

A really poetic and at the same time strong view because of the colour contrasts, the convergence to the rock, the wonderful sky so different from the foreground.
Very well done.

This is a lovely picture.
I know that all the rules tell us that we are not supposed to put the main subject in the centre nor is the horizon supposed to divide the picture almost exactly into two parts, but in this case it just works perfectly!
Wonderful colours and contrasts - the dramatic sky contrasts well with the peaceful foreground.

This photo is amazing. Am I right in thinking that this is the photoshop version of the original? I wouldlove to know how you did it as you have some amazing skills. Any chance of e-mailing me your workflow for this shot?

Lovely shot. I like the combination of colours, the little bit of haze in the air, and also the light. Thanks for sharing.

Right from the old school days Enid Blyton novels...
The Famous Five often use to run down such green valleys and cross the sea to a dark stony island.
Loved the color variations and light effect in the photograph.

Indeed a powerful mood through those colors. There's a huge difference compared with the first post processing.

HEllo Manoj, the Re-post is in my pinion much much better than the original. The crop improve the balance of the composition and the warm colors (maybe a bit to saturated) give more expression to the image. Good work.

Photos dark .. dark colors typical Scottish .... ..... .... the mysterious island is too central.
But you had to choose either the symmetry or ...

Great atmosphere and hot colors, a peaceful landscape :-)

Beautiful landscape photo Manoj, the horizon and the island are perfectly set in the centre of the photoframe. Although you might have changed the original colour, the lighting still seems perfect.

I really liked the colors in this one, the calm scene and the peacefulness as well. Did you use any filters for this one, especially for the skies? I find the darkened tip of the trees unnatural and the horizon a bit tilted. Anyway, great capture regardless!
all the best!

Very nice composition. The colours are really mesmerising. The rock in sea imparting a perfect symmetry to the pic.
