    Slains Sunset

    I rather like that. The coastline around Stonehaven is very interesting indeed and the highland fault line creates a great landscape as the rock types change

    Landscape workshops

    James Grant is one of the best landscape photographers in the country. Look no further.

    Figure in landscape

    I have to say I would much rather not have the figure in this otherwise excellent picture.

    Alpe di Siusi

    Thanks - it's the clarity of these that I am envious of. Still my grass is green which was very important to me. You've taken this further along than where I was. I'll go back one day, hopefully get a less hazy day.

    Alpe di Siusi

    The edit is so much better. I am ok without the ground and the big distant view is what matters here. You got a brilliant day for these. When I went it was too hazy and that low bank of mist hides all sorts of sins like ski centers, a distant forestry track that narks me etc.

    Critique A misty Autumnal morning in the Pineta Valley

    I've done a couple in B&W and I do like them - I will post them later.

    Alpe di Siusi

    For shots 2 and 3 I really would crop wider losing the bottom trees altogether. I find the huts (unlike most) a bit of an eyesore when I came here. I'd focus on them and I wouldn't suggest any more contrast at all. First shot of post 6 in this thread works well and of post 4 shot one cropped...

    Southwold pier

    Nothing other than mesmerisingly epic describes these. These are amongst the very best coastal shots taken in the UK.

    Madeira

    These are great - viewed on a colour managed web browser and profiled screen. I saw these on a naff screen and thought wtf but reserved comment until I saw them for real. The steely tones of two make it stand out with the textures of the rocks up front - a real feast for the eyes

    Sunset in the Anisclo Canyon

    Fair comment. Any foreground imho wouldn’t be worth having. Some messy tree branches aside. I’m all about the distant view. A drone would be a cool idea but I don’t have one, or particularly want one. However a hike up Mondoto could give a very different view. If/when/if you have been you’ll...

    Sunset in the Anisclo Canyon

    They were taken on the body you sold me - it's a nice thought anyway. It's an amazing place and I know if you went you'd love it and bring back amazing shots. From where you live it's probably no further than Skye and miles miles better (more pictures will follow later and I am finding my mojo...

    I prefer this version to the earlier one. Good job

    The Trees for the Woods

    No - prefer one. Woodland shots suffer enough as they usually miss sky out and tree tops too, but to miss the ground out too is a step too far.

    Autumn in Stoke wood

    I like less contrast than most when I process but these seem a bit too washed out - I certainly don't think you need to fill all the histogram and usually make a point of leaving a bit of room at both ends (what's the point of having a camera with lots of dynamic range only to kill it all in...

    Stag on Rannoch Moor

    You can still see the road - and for that reason I think the shot fails - and also for the half cut off mountain. That road makes getting access to the Glen amazing, but you have to take great care in your location and composition selection to avoid framing it. What I might have done is got to...

    Can’t get on with my D850.Thinking of going back to D750

    Also try using a shutter speed of 1/focal length or faster and I bet they are all fine unless the focus is out. Long lens's demand the most shake free technique.

    Nikon D800......

    I’ve got both - there isn’t a huge amount in it final image quality wise

    From hot to cold

    The first shot is very special. Top work

    'Wreck'

    Stunning as always. With a sky and sea as good as this I bet you took a few more. I like the composition and processing a lot - but I want to see more :)

    Sunrise at Loch Rusky.....

    I like this - I prefer it minus the boats though so in that sense I think you got lucky

    What's a leading line?

    Bloody hell - that’s how to do “foreground” Love the composition and light of one. Very edifying although with a 3x4 or 5x7 or even 4x5 taking off the bottom you’d have a less skinny looking picture - although as present that would make a belting smart phone wall paper

    Lost World

    Composition stands out here with the framing of the autumn tree. Nicely seen and thoughtfully processed with a fantastic 3 dimensional depth to the shot. Not my bag subject wise but as this sort of thing goes this is as good as it gets.

    Non UK Pyrenees next week

    Bloody hell - lucky you. I miss it terribly and they’re always on my mind. Reckon from what I see on social media from over there it’s full snow ahead - so a lot of the higher up lakes could be frozen. That said - I’d try Embalse de Pineta, Lac D’Oredon if the roads open. If not you might be...
