  • The Boat House at Dawn

    Just gorgeous.

  • Washing Ledge. Kimmeridge

    Super Ian - making the most of the unique kimmeridge features. This is the best shot I've seen from there, if not perfect in execution the idea and notion are spot-on. If I was being mega critical I'd say it needed a little more sky, especially with that lovely colour - it just feels a little short of breath up at the top of the image, and you've got the space to spare at the bottom.

  • Victoria Falls II

    Fraser,

    Thanks - the sun was setting right down the far end of the canyon, casting the light directly down the length of the gully, and so catching any of the falls that stuck out further from the main rock wall, like this one.

    Cheers,

  • Tuscan Lightning

    Ah, and before anyone asks, this is as-shot except for pulling back the highlights around the lightning bolts slightly to let them stand out a little more.

    Colours are *exactly* as shot - the red glow is from the city of Florence, and the blue tones to the cloud from the illumination of the lightning...

    Peace and love,

  • Fire on Fimmvruhls

    Goggz, apologies for the long delay - I used a number of things, as you point out, to attempt this, but the sad fact is that over the long exposure something as bright as a volcano is going to blow out, and since I hate HDR and the whole concept of using multiple photographs, I was left with this - I used my finger, a rock, a bag strap, all of these things to hold the exposure back in the relevant sections, but to no avail - every attempt had different results, but the general trend was continual blow-out of the highlights.

    Sometimes we have to accept that a compromise is necessary. Considering the amount of income and attention these shots have got me, I think it was an acceptable compromise!!!

  • Thanks for the p/f comment - much appreciated! You've got some corkers here too - only had a quick look but Penmon and Corsets are really striking, well thought shots with a lot to them. Great stuff!

    Regards,

    James
  • Chris,

    Many thanks for your comments - followed you up and well impressed with the findings - there's not a composition I don't like on the first page of your p/f, and you have wonderful adeptness with colour and light. I'm going to keep checking back and adding to what should be more votes - you've got some excellent work here.

    Regards,

    James
  • Thankyou...! Some very solid stuff here yourself - keep it up!

    James
  • P.s. - Cheers for the p/f comment - any ideas on how to get onto that radar?!

  • Dawn,

    Thankyou for all your lovely comments on some of my photographs - i'm glad you like them! You have a good eye for colour - your latest shot with the red bird against such a bleak backdrop is excellent, I'm sure there are many pro's out there who would love such a shot!

    Thanks again, and keep up the good work!

    James
  • Paul,

    Been looking through your p/f - you've come a long way photographically in a pretty short time, and clearly contribute a hell of a lot to the top-end of this site quality-wise! I think two of your images really stand out, and I was genuinely suprised not to find them in the Editor's choice section - Jagged Shores and Mystic Coast II I if I remember rightly - the first has a genuinely engaged feel through composition that stands out from the crowd, and the second has some wonderful soft and ethereal light - rather than just the usual orange low-sun effect that so many people go for. Glad to have had this twenty minutes to peruse - I'm going to have to wander down to Cornwall sometime... Grin

    Take it easy,

    James

  • Den,

    Thanks for the award - esp since I've just dropped by and seen you'e pretty damn mean with a camera yourself...! If you ever want any advice on Iceland, don't hesitate to ask - I've been out there every summer for the past 4 years. It's a must-see though - I could (and probably will) be going back out there for so many more years.

    Cheers, and keep up the awesome work

  • Hi Paul - some excellent shots here. I've left a reply on the image you commented on, but in short, Lofoten is in Northern Norway, above the Arctic Circle...

    Thanks, and keep up the fantastic work...
