Beautifully seen Martin and expertly taken. Fabulous DoF picks out the branch and leaves perfectly, and a sublime amount of movement on selective leaves.

All the very best mate!!

This was the first image I took here, right at the very bottom of the gorge. No light Malcolm, just different shades of colour on the leaves.

Many thanks all for looking in, appreciated.

This, I presume is that little tree you found that you were laughing at after your first attempt. Glad you zoomed in, this is excellent and very original. No upload from me tonight, tomorrow pm I'm afraid ;-(

That's very different and like the way the brown of the leves complement the brown of the water.

Couldn't get to the Padley meet this morning, but didn;t realise there was an earlier one, as went out by myself. Thought about going to Curbar too!!.

All the best for 2007 Martin.

A beauty. Well spotted. Love the almost lattice work feel of the tree against that lovely soft background.

Superb, Martin. It's the use of observation, composition and DOF that really impresses. This is the kind of shot I want to take this year - this puts a twist on the bog standard EPZ landscapes that litter this site. This is inspiring stuff.

All the best for 2007, Martin.

I am glad you directed me to this Martin. I remembered it straight away and I was surprised to see I had not voted on it after all this time. I have rectified my oversight Smile

Thanks Jeanie, one of my all time favourite images is this mainly because I came up with something different from good old Padley Smile

Again, thanks to all above.....appreciated.
