Landscape with Polarising filter

Not really done much in the way of landscapes but I got a polariser and thought i'd give it a go as there were a few clouds about at the beginning of March. Will have to drive up the mountain again as the orchids should be out.

And is it wrong to crop off the top and bottom of 4/3s picsto give it a "wider" look - I suppose a matter of opinion, I'll have to try a panorama or two??

Nice pictures Paul, that's lovely scenery you have there and the polariser has worked really well. Cropping the frame is no problem at all, in fact it's to be encouraged if it improves the picture and gives it the look you want.

Tell me about that round pond on the hill, it looks almost like a modern version of these old man-made clay-lined ponds for livestock to drink from ... up in these here hills. (I have no piccies of suchlike)

This is a nice set. If I had to pick a favourite, I'd say the first is the strongest.

Re: Landscape with Polarising filter

Hi thanks for the comments.
Zuiko: yes a bit of a change of scenery from Basildon, we've rented out our property there to rent a place here for a year or two.

Ulfric: Not exactly sure but I think the ponds a fill up point in case of fires in the National Park - it does get very dry in the summer.



Regards Paul
