Yes, one can definitely tell your images from the thumbnails - very distinctive and light captures one recognizes. Thanks for v2, it's like a slice of heaven to view - the peaceable kingdom......

V1 is perfect in every way from the wet sand to the swirly sky, the title is fantastic too.
V2 offers a wonderful Spring image, you couldn't have made more perfect with the lambs and ducks, a pretty picture of contentment Andy.

V2 is such a sweet shot and the light is sooo lovely and rich, Andy.

NOW THEN...V1 is really exquisite. Not just the light and colour in the sky AND reflected in the sand and water...but also...those reddish clouds which seem to be spiralling up and outwards from the right! Marvellous...

14 Apr 2012 10:50AM
V1 is another corker Andy and with the tanker on the horizon add so much scale .....v2 grrr after all i taught you about cloning however in fairness its a cracking good capture great light well spotted now get back to the cloning class agai!!

Happy weekend

Your timing in v1 is impeccible, Andy. The tiny ridges of sand partially exposed is a great choice, giving a rippled effect.
Would never in a million years guessed that v2 is yours....I reckon the site has been hackedGrin

And a photographers dream too Andy, such wonderful light and colours in v1. I think v2 should be uploaded in its own right, it is such a lovely and peaceful riverside scene with wonderful light, colours and reflections and of course the birds and beasts which enhance it still further
15 Apr 2012 6:49AM
Vi is outstanding for both color and composition and v2 is a lovely peaceful rural idyll - worth a separate upload. Great images both. A
