A wam image capture on the lovely Isle of Grain, then some slight post production work carried out in CS5 Extended. Hope you enjoy.

Thank you all for your most welcomed comments regarding yesterdays up-load, they certainly provide me with much food for thought.

On that note, I am in the process of re-thinking my photography. I am in two minds: a) "Do I carry on in the same vain, producing an eclectic mix of images, with no real genre to focus on?" or b) Do I start to focus on one primary area and stick to it?"

"If possible I would like your opinions, as I am in rather a quandary?"

Regards Nathan

An excellentl landscape Nathan, rich warm colours.

Take and process the images you like, one does not have to follow a pattern unless you wish to specialise

A sublime image, Nathan, the colours are simply glorious.
I think the choice of photography must be up to you, Nathan. Many of us like to 'specialise' in just one thing, i.e. flowers, bugs, landscapes, which maybe appear to be a little 'boring' to others. As you know, I love the little critters, and each and every one of them is different in its own way, I guess a lot of us appear to get stuck in a rut. Whatever you choose to focus on, keep taking the photographs Smile Carol

Morning Nathan. At first I thought that this was over-processed but when I stopped to have a proper look it actually works really well, it's like a Turner oil painting. It's deep and luscious and fiery, I love it.

As to your question, well I personally am intrigued in all aspects of photography and, as you can see from my portfolio, take the eclectic route. However, I do set myself short-term targets which I concentrate on more. For example, on holiday in Scotland I wanted to try and get shots with reflections in (as above). I still take lots of shots of lots of things but I keep my eye open for opportunities to fulfill these short-term shots.

Nathan it depends. I think, we should concentrate on the type of work which gives us most satisfaction and contentment.

You've turned an industrial seascape into an image of beauty. On balance it's probably a bit over-saturated for my taste but I'd vote for it if my out-dated browser at work didn't cause an error preventing me from voting!
As for specialising, I think focusing on one area tends to accelerate your learning and understanding and improve those images. However variety is the spice of life and being a bit of a jack of all trades means you can see images in every situation, which also improves your photographic experience of life! It might suit your quandry to follow one area of photography for a while, maybe a month or a year, then change to another as the mood takes you!

Well that's the million dollar question Nathan. I keep thinking that after all this time I should concentrate on one particular subject but there are so many interesting things out there that it's difficult. Also, just doing one subject can get boring for the photographer and the viewer. I'd say just go with the flow.

Hi Nathan I love the deep tones and the triangular composition, excellent, as to your question I was a Pro Photographer for more years than I care to remember and because I had to make a living from my Photography I only ever did Weddings Portraits and Commercial work, in the end it turned me away from photography because of the repetitive nature, when I retired I did not pick up a camera for over five years, it is only through a good friend that I joined a camera club and was introduced to this wonderful world of Nature, Landscapes, Macro, and all the other aspects of photography I am learning about, look at my portfolio, hardly any portraits, no weddings or commercial work on there, I am now free to please myself and would once again be bored to tears if I had to photograph again the same things all the time, ask yourself this, if you were a bus driver for 8 hours a day! Would your hobby in the evenings be driving buses, I think it all boils down to one thing, your love of the subject being photographed, hope this is not too long winded.

Regards

Trev.

Your pictures are truly insperational to someone like myself starting out. I am sure whichever direction you take photography wise you will give it your utmost. My simple motto is which ever aspect you truly inside feel fulfilled with.You are an amazing photographer, and there were far too many good photos for me to comment upon. I look forward greatly to viewing more.

There is no right or wrong. Some people may post only bird images. Others, portraiture. They do it 'cos it's what they love and it pleases them. If you put up images which please you, photography will bring you joy.

You have loads of great comments here Nathan, so sticking my tuppence worth in too Grin. Personally I love all the different shots you come up with, some of your processing is very innovative and at times emotional. This shot is wonderful.
I love wildlife, but to capture the truely wonderful wildlife shots that I would like, I would spend hours in hides etc. So although I try to do wildlife as often as I can, I also like to capture anything else that takes my fancy. The one thing that photography has taught me, is to take more notice of my surroundings. I can now find beauty in the most mundane things. I pay attention to the light outside, and a whole variety of things that I took for granted before I took up photography as a hobby.

I think you should mix your images and keep us guessing Nathan, as they say variety is the spice of life. Forest Gump once said "Life is like a box of chocolates", your portfolio is just the same Nathan as we never know what we are going to get from day to day which makes viewing your images so enjoyable. I've tended to stick to the same topic for this summer as I haven't really been out and about that much and i've done all my local landscapes to death. I shall be diversifying again once the insect season is over, so you shall be seeing a wider range of subjects from me once again.

Great shot Nathan full of vibrant colours. Turner-esk yes! I kinda come from a similar direction as Moira. i am into all forms of nature and photographing them (sometimes with a different slant as in my Cormorants at dawn) but photography has made me so much more aware of my surroundings-things which I took for granted before- the shadows cast by sunlight in woods etc.) but I would hate to stick to all wildlife (much as I love it) the mountains hold much for me and its refreshing to switch from one to the other. I think I am a jack of all trades master of none. I guess if I stuck to just one aspect of photography I would get a lot lot better at that but I like to change subjects and that suits me... Whatever you decide keep 'em coming! Paul
