I wonder what my style will be like in 5 years time. I suspect it will be Ďdifferentí to what it is now because if I look back 5 years, (please donít) I can personally see big improvements in both the technical, but also the creative. Now this isnít something that will be a surprise to most of you, but continuing this development curve I should be another 20% better in 5 years, he he!

Now as we all know that in life things donít always follow a uniform prediction, and the previous statement is making the assumption that I will continue to develop (which is totally subjective anyway). But I can make a statement with certainty ďif Iím still enjoying making landscape photography in 5 years time and my health permits it, Iím sure I will be different in many ways to today!Ē (Doesnít sound so sexy do it).

The thing Iím exploring here is to gain insight into my own development path. Iím wondering if I would even like or respect the images Iím making in 5 years time? (I suspect not, because I havenít developed to like them yet). Iím wondering if they will be exclusively black and white (something that many of my contacts have moved towards exclusively). Iím wondering if I will level off and become settled into a style that Iím happy with, (somehow I doubt that, Iím very much an advocate of change as I tire of doing the same thing time and time again, no matter how good it is...) Iím wondering if I will branch out into different styles (I do like to toy with portraits and many of my favours recently have been images of people with a twist). But one thing Iím sure of, I love landscape photography because getting up at silly hours in the morning to tramp across a frozen field and feel the pain of the frost eating away at your toes and fingertips, is in some strange way invigorating. It makes me feel at one with nature and the environment. It makes me concentrate fully on the moment and it makes me feel totally alive! That is why I bet Iím still hitting the alarm clock and pealing myself away from the pillow to head off into the dark in 5 years time! How about you?

Whatever you are doing in five years time you won't be improving on the composition of this shot. Lovely work.

You bet in 5 years time technology would've advanced and you'll have more scope, there's something magical about landscape photography, sunsets/sunrises... great image by the way.

"I think, therefore I am, I think...."

That was heavy .... good job the image is lightGrinGrin.

I actually don't like a lot of what I do just a few days after thinking 'that was good!' - not sure i have a particular style either so the question is sort of non-applicable. But I do like your landscapes.
