Hi Steve -

Another great set, moody, flowing and autumnal. The last one I like very much.

Regards. Barr1e

Steve - you have to be one of the best landscape photographers I have had the pleasure to view photos of. Not just on e-group, but on any www sites I have visited.

Stunning, simply stunning... is the only way to describe some of your landscape shots.

I really like the last one, but my favourite is elgol1.jpg (the rocky foreground with the branch). But they are all really good. If I have a niggle, one or two look like they have been through a shadows and highlights enhancement and so some of the tones look a but unnatural.

All the pictures look fantastic! I like the #8, next to the last one.

Thank you all for your comments.
Ian the effect your seeing is I think the slight over use of the contrast and clarity tools on lightroom. Something I'm going to have to resist more. The clouds look dark in some of the due to the heavy nd grad filters.
I think I might try a different filter brand sometime

A truly stunning set of images

I particularly like the first as the scene looks wild and untouched, the sixth for the timing of the little splash and swirl and the eighth for the beautiful light. Thank you for sharing them with us t-up

Cheers,

JohnGG

Hi Steve,

Another terrific set of landscapes, thanks for sharing.

Number 6 is my favourite. The evening light at Elgol is fantastic, the composition faultless and I love the wave breaking on the foreground boulder. Excellent - this one really made me jealous!

Cheers,

These are very good landscapes indeed and you should consider trying to sell them. They are that good.
