    Nigel Farage in my town today !

    That just wants to make me vote for them all the more. Early alarm set for Thursday so I can get to the polling station bright and early :D

    Nigel Farage in my town today !

    I'll be voting for them on Thursday :D They're both good portraits and capture a sense of fun and energy that most politicians lack. You can sense in the second shot a real energy and enthusiasm for what they believe in.

    Bluebells

    A very fine controlled exposure. Good example of this type of shot. I sometimes think this sort of thing works better as a portrait style composition- did you turn the camera the other way. A suggestion - I do see the comment about the sun being in the far side of the shot. A square, 5x4, 4x3...

    Waterfall country Wales

    Right composition for sure

    Three from this week in Glencoe

    I am ok with them - but I can see your point. I like the clouds but I envisage this second shot with clouds from an earlier trip. https://www.talkphotography.co.uk/threads/glencoe-sunrise-one-from-a-recent-workshop.695709/ I can see the fourth shot in that thread - composed like the...

    Waterfall country Wales

    My view - great location but not a great composition. I think to keep things simple - lose the foreground - all of it - it's messy and does nothing good in your picture. I'd have got to the waters edge and shot a little wider losing all the crap at the front. It's quite flat - there's room...

    Your most used Landscape lens

    I like a 20mm on FF - Nikkor F1.8 20mm I use a lot - certainly in my local patch and my usual tripod holes it's on a lot. For UK Landscapes you don't need any wider. I did find though in Spain it wasn't wide enough for some of the small lakes and much bigger mountains than you get here. So I...

    A challenging day in Chamonix

    That’s the Mer de Glacé Glacier - the largest in France. Carefully composed to hide a hotel and tourist clobber ;)

    Three from this week in Glencoe

    Aye - to be fair it’s gone from 96mb TIFF to a nasty 1mb jpeg. On the big screen it’s mint - d800 and 14-24 correctly focussed ;)

    Three from this week in Glencoe

    Finally summer is here. It's no secret it's my favourite time of year so it was high time I headed out to enjoy the fine weather. It's still a little brown on the Moors so I chose compositions around this. First up is a lovely little fall on the River Coe - very little light about but the sky...

    A few from the start of May around Snowdonia

    That shot of Portmeirion is total class.

    River Gelt

    For me I prefer 1 with the big log. The problem with 2 is the river seems more to the right and it’s all a bit unbalanced

    In all balance probably my 24-70

    Spring on Skye

    Aye that’s me :) Good to see you on here.

    The French Alps

    I like all of them bar 3 - which I think would look better in summer or autumn when the trees have leaves on them.

    Crummock Water

    Now that’s more like it. Lovely light and feeling in this shot and just a gorgeous colour palate and composition. Sort of picture I wish I took

    Glencoe Sunrise - One from a recent workshop.

    I’m preferring a more natural rendering approach as opposed to very strong colours although in the case of one the red saturation and luminance was pushed a lot. It looked like that with the eye but the raw was very faded as I had to under expose to keep the blues in the sky then I just brought...

    Glencoe Sunrise - One from a recent workshop.

    I grabbed these on a recent workshop last week. Once I got my client comfortable and ready for what was one of the best mornings I ever saw I couldn't resist a few shots and the client wanted a few demonstration shots on how I work. Whilst I don't shoot time lapses (I really should) I do like...

    A few recent shots :)

    Actually one point of crit - and it isn't aimed at you. Anyone else look at that Reine shot (7) and see what all these climate change leftists are on about. Imagine that shot without the village, just the water and mountains - as god made it rather than as us toileting it. At first due to the...

    How far do you travel for your landscape photography?

    I guess - Glencoe really being my local spot and honestly I just keep going back for more and more. Although I like going to new places and seeing new things too. There has to be a mix of local and new.

    Dunstanburgh Castle

    Not much wrong there. Despite the lack of light the definition in the sky and textured dark rocks save it. Processing stands out as being very nicely done. For coastal work (which I very seldom do) I might favour a shorter exposure to retain more texture and a sense of movement in the sea rather...

    Does Aperture work on the (latest) version of MacOS?

    Yep. Luckily I’ve exported the RAWs into folders the same way as I run projects and exported 16 bitt tifs of the final renditions into folders organised the same way. I’ll buy capture one and just edit new stuff in that and if I want to re render prior RAWs I’ll import into c1. I’m tempted to...

    Formby sands

    Yep. Probably the best ICM image I’ve seen

    A few recent shots :)

    Number 2 is very nice but 7 is probably the best Reine picture out there

    How far do you travel for your landscape photography?

    Just drive down - I did and plan a few spots to shoot along the way ;) I’m off all October to the Pyrenees:)

    Alt Dearg Mor Falls

    Very - like last month. It’s not been a great year for me landscapes wise until this mornings workshop where I nabbed a few demonstration shots. I like the square better too My tripod does what it does best - go where it’s been many many tines before :)

    These are great. The reflections totally make it - without reflections these wouldn’t be the brilliant inspiring pictures they are
