A stunning two days in Edinburgh and the largest Clan Gathering and Highland Games in Scotland for years took place in Holyrood Park next to Holyrood Palace. Blest with fabulous weather, visitors and competitors from around the globe enjoyed a spectacular set up with a backdrop of the scenery beneath the volcanic rock that is known as Arthur’s Seat.
I only got one shot of this magnificent looking gentleman as there were lots of people passing in front of me. Rather than increase the colour I took some some away in Photoshop which gives a rather ‘old painting’ feel to it. Other than removing some awning out at the top right, again in Photoshop, nothing else has been done. The little boy and the other person to the left and in quite dark area of the image, add to it in my view. Happy for any opinions on this image.
