One of my favourite type of shots, leafy river sides. I like the composition, and I don't know whether it's the upload but it seems to lack contrast. Again that could be me as I like more punch in my photos.

Another shot in which the thumbnail does not do it justice. The very nice muted colours capyures the delicate leaves reallys well.

Beautiful landscape photo. So serene. But as gibbsy says, seems to lack contrast. Think I would have reduced the light and increased the contrast to give it more impact. Since going over to digital I find that they also lack contrast, compared to 35mm, and have to alter the lighting and contrast to give me something of what I saw in the original. But all that aside it is a very calm photo. Keep up the good work and show more.
Regards.
Ken

Thank you all for the kind remarks.
Magda, romantic is fine, I hadn't thought of it like that, but you are quite right.

People who like contrast, thats an interesting thought. Contrast has actually been a problem at that location, in the dappled sunlight, and the only decent frames I've had from there are with the old Rollie and its low contrast lens. There are several frames from the same roll with slightly different lighting and exposure, each giving a different look and feel, but this is the one I like best.
People who've seen prints, and really like it, probably wouldn't appreciate punching it up, but I'll give it some thought.

The degree of contrast in this picture suits the tranquil nature of the scene.

This picture is one of the greats on this site.
