I like the latest the best. It emphasizes that beautiful sky. For the fourt, its great JawZ, but with a foreground it would have been even better. Or change the format to landscape and zoom in a bit for the swans to bring them more to attention. Anyway, I really like your progression. :thumbsup: Keep it up! :smileani:

I've been to Mull only on a one day trip with the ferry from Oban to Craignure. And we were without car, so we just made it to that castle shown on your pictures and to one nice other castle with an interesting garden nearby ( don't remember the name).
But it would be great to see more pictures from Mull. I really liked Scotland (been there twice), hope that i could go there again sooner or later.

the rape field is awesome Jawz!! Still, if you dont mind, try to cut a bit off the lower rim, so that the sky makes 2/3 or 3/5 of the pic. If you have a simple tool that lets you cut the pics on ratio, use the original and try there. This makes the sky even more dramatic. since the yellow of the field anyway starts a bit further, noone would realize that you have cut it.

But if you like to emphasize the foreground put that on 2/3 or 3/5 of the pic, but some of the dramatic sky would be lost, so Id prefer the other version. :) Try and play a bit with it. You will see theres still potential. :) Keep on shooting! I like your progression!
