Landscape Group Members submitted another stunning collection of images to the Landscape Group competition during March 2022.
Time At Seilebost by William Watson
Camera and lens: Fuji X-T3, Fuji XF 16-80mm lens at 41mmExposure: f/22, ISO 80 for 0.4 seconds ICM Movement: Single diagonal sweep from upper right with a pause at the beginning to let details register Post Processing: In Lightroom, to add contrast and manage lighting and saturation within the image
The photograph was taken in the late afternoon after returning to the workshop base at Seilebost from a trip down West Harris photographing the crashing waves. I sat down in the conservatory with a cuppa and took this single exposure ICM through the rain-streaked window - far removed from the normal image of a Landscape Photographer as being out in all weathers!
I've been trying to develop my ICM for a few years with some of the works of Turner as my main inspiration. The final ICM image may be from a single image (as here) or from combining a number of images (eg in the style of Andy Gray). I find that, when successful, the ICM image can remove fine detail and convey much more in terms of feeling for the subject.

It gives a beautiful feeling and colour of the place.
- The image provided an interesting take on the subject. It made me pause to have a good look and the result was pleasing to the eye.

I liked the panoramic format and the composition and balance were superb. The detail on the buildings was extremely sharp and the reflections were beautiful.
A stunning symmetrical image which is possibly over sharp but which I think adds to the reflective qualities of the buildings in the water.
Stunning image with incredible detail.
Good to see a city landscape and done well.

Good composition with reflection of the mill and a nicely framed frosty foreground . Lovely soft palette typical of ....a misty morning!
- Atmospheric, brings the eye to the centre by leading in from the grasses and the cloud streak - good interesting composition.
