A couple of nice polarized Scottish landscapes.

I shot this first one from a roadside just inside the Scottish border.

This was taken from a Cafe in Ayr, overlooking the Isle Of Arran.

The first resize was 1200px and they are fantastic. I had to resize again to fit my photoblogs. The resizing / compression software over-sharpens at 500px, which I feel has ruined #2.

I'll publish the full size images, with the rest of the collection on my site if you're interested.

very nice pictures, and it also does remind me to get a polarising filter.

You are aware that you can polarize with Photoshop right?

i have elements 4...and still learning, maybe buying the filter is the smart move?!

I try to yes. We spent a lovely week in Ayr in September, and did a lot of driving to see as much of the land as possible.

My partner and I went away last month. I voted for Scotland, she voted for North-Wales... needless to say I lost :lol:
But, I'm heading over to Bute in 2 or 3 weeks. I've stayed on the island before but didn't have the camera gear I have now.
I'm going to spend a day on Arran, and see as much of the coast as possible.

With regards to Photoshop. I believe you can perform the polarization technique with Elements, although it's been a while since I looked at Elements.
I'll check it out now and post polarization instructions for you.

But... Yes, I'd recommend the investment in a filter.
