    oh boy, here goes, this is my first ever entry, with some of my first ever pictures; were taken whilst i was the driver for a 3 peaks challenge. This was taken at roughly 530 in the morning just by Scafel Pike, the weather had been chasing us through most of the night, i was covered in midge bites from ben nevis, and had gotten very little sleep int he previous 30 hours. When we got to Scafel at 5ish, you could see a fair chunk further away, but the clouds moved in FAST, hitting us not 10 minutes after that picture was taken in fact, my experience of hilly regions such as this was little, and i couldn't believe the speed, and ferocity of the rain which proceeded to hammer down at the guys, adding an extra 90 minutes to their climb.

    Perhaps contextually it works, and without that it doesn't quite work. but feel free to give me pointers and criticism, as i need to learn somehow!

    DSC00451 (1).jpg oh, picture was taken with a sony alpha a6000, using the kit lens, this is straight from the camera, and no post processing in lightroom etc has been done.

    Nice idea but its not there for me. It's not moody enough, it looks dank there. Needs some clarity definition and pop.

    As above, it doesn't scream moody I'm afraid. Also, I agree it needs some processing as it's a bit flat and a bit too dark/underexposed imo.
