  • Landscape Photographer of the Year

    This year's images are again on show for free at the mezzanine level at London's Waterloo Station until February 7th. A selection are also apparently at Euston station.

    A wonderful range of styles in my view, and much to enjoy. It's nice to amble down the boards sipping a coffee from one of the nearby outlets, however once again the lighting of some of the displays is poor and the low mounting of some tested my knees and back!

    I spotted only about 3 images taken on mirrorless systems (no Olympus) and no iPhones, but there was one on a 10x8 plate camera...

    BTW those humping f2.8 full-frame lenses up the peaks might like to ponder on the fact that I only spotted one image taken at a wider aperture than f7.1.

    Funny lot, photographers, eh?


    Too much Oly gear.
    Panasonic GM5, 12-32, 12-35, 15. Laowa 7.5.
    Assorted legacy lenses, plus a Fuji X70 & a Sony A7S.

    Thanks Mark. Waterloo is the portal to That London from here so I'll have to remember it's on next time I plan a trek.

      I may be wrong, but is there such a thing as a " Shift Lens " for mirrorless systems?
      The picture tells the story, great when you have a bad memory.DW.

        There's "LensBaby" but that's not in same league as a proper T&S

        You can use the OM one but that too is very expensive

        We often repeat the mistakes we most enjoy...

          There's also a 24mm Samyang tilt/shift in various mounts.


          I should add that the OM lenses were shift only. I rarely used tilt or shift when shooting landscapes on large format.
          It's the image that's important, not the tools used to make it.
