Happy New Year to you all....

I have not had much time on site recently, and was surprised and amazed at the amount of comments on my latest - thanks very much everyone. I am still sifting through my shots from the weekend in the lake District - there were so many, I love it up there - just one opportunity after another. This scene was unfolding before our eyes as the storm clouds raced over the mountains with breaks of sunlight and then this cloud burst which captured some of the light. I hope I have done it justice, this was late afternoon and the last of the days light.

You have captured the atmosphere at the time beautifully, recording the light and colours so well in this attractive shot, Linda. I guess such weather conditions must be fairly common in the Lake District. And I'm so glad your last shot received so much attention.

9 Jan 2011 - 4:49 PMConstructive Critique!This comment was flagged as constructive critique! 

As it stands, in my opinion, this landscape photograph is easily worth a vote. I think you "have done it justice".

However, if I were asked how I would add value to this photograph, I would suggest that it would benefit from some foreground interest. The textbooks say that good landscape photographs have interest in the background, in the middle ground and in the foreground. This photograph has something to look at in the background and in the middle ground. Clouds, mountains and trees. However there is nothing in the foreground. I think the cows by the footpath could have provided the required foreground interest. But, by the time you had walked closer to them, so that they appeared in the foreground, you can bet the light would have changed.

In such situations, I get the wife to admire the view. Then I take a photograph of her admiring the view. She is the foreground interest in a lot of my landscape photographs, so many that I suspect she may be getting bored with being my forground interest. What's more, I think the books say that landscape photographs aren't supposed to include people. You can't win, can you?
