Touch out the lens flare/abberation in the lower left of the picture and you have a great shot
Sean Kelly - 20/May/05
Agreed. How do I do that?
Jonny Tee 69 - 22/May/05
Stunning :) But PLEASE upload it again at a higher JPEG quality.

Nice photo! I agree about removing the lens flare. Use the rubber stamp in Photoshop, although it may be tricky in this case since you have a lot of detail under the flare.
What's a cairngorm and where was this shot taken?
Brian Birtle - 23/May/05
The Cairngorms are a large group of granite mountains forming a high glaciated plateau. A cairngorm is a semi-precious form of smoky quartz (I think) that forms amber coloured crystals. The photo was taken from the plateau above Coire an-t-Sneachda.

It may be easier to just crop out the lens flare than touch it out.

Aye, I came to the same conclusion Chris.

Taking the piss how?

Having to explain a Cairn-gormless.

Maybe he was, maybe he wasn't. If he was then it was hardly worth the effort.
PS Up yours buddy.

Looks like the plateau is on fire...which I'm sure it wasn't!

The setting sun was catching the spindrift. Amazing effect. Should've really taken a lot more photos.
