Thank you all so much, much more positive than I expected when asking for critique.
I'll no doubt post after said 1-2-1 and let you know :)
Thanks Steve, much appreciated. These are a tiny slice though of my work in woodland, I'm nowhere close to it.
Many thanks Scott, I'm going with John...
I've long admired the woodland photographers from afar, it's fantastic when done properly but oh so easy to get wrong and get frustrated with. I've got a 1-2-1 workshop later this month with a local chap who does some amazing work and hope to learn a lot more with him, but for now these two are...
I had a brief look and wasn't a huge fan of the winner at first - It's different though and he's made the most of a pretty dull sky as well. I really liked Stuart McGlennon's image of Buttermere though - He seems to consistently produce very good work.
Bamburgh but not the sunrise which seems to be very popular, living outside Glasgow the sunset is much easier to do :D

I won the lens - it's still in its box, I never intended to keep it ?
Maybe a spare bag with some backup kit is the way forward. I tend to do long days and nights out shooting, I'll head out for sunset and then stay out for some astro.
What i really need is a 14-200 F2.8 Plz :D
Any suggestions for something longer than my 24-70 I can use for landscapes that won't break the bank ?
Maybe something older and manual ? I would love the 70-200 F4 but even second hand they're expensive.
