Running Through Your Blood

By Neil_Higgins
Well what can i say, its been a blast Smile

This is my last upload on EPZ (although i ain't quitting photography) probably for a very long time, i'd just like to say many thanks for all your votes/comments and support.
Without it i wouldn't have stuck around for as long as i did Smile

Also i'd like to wish a speedy recovery to Pete the creator of this site, who i also had the pleasure of meeting one time at Focus Smile

And to you lot, well enjoy your photography and have a great Christmas Smile

A great landscape; great lighting and exposure handling, and just the right amount of movement on the water.
(Thanks for your comments on my portfolio; I'll respond later when I have more time but I'm supposed to be working)!

will miss seeing your work on here Neil. When it comes to consistent high quality landscape photography (particularly the way you get the very best out of the available light) I can't think of another photographer on here who does it better.

Suppose I'll have to start looking at your website now Wink

13 Dec 2008 12:51PM
I'll miss your work on the site Neil. Agree with Mike above. All the best for your photography in the future.

13 Dec 2008 11:54PM
Wow, I've read every comment, i can't reply to each one individually, but i will say this, first of all, a big thanks for taking the time to view and comment on my photo's, its the only way we learn if were going in the right direction, and its certainly helped me in my time on EPZ Smile

Me? Well i guess, i'll always love the Lakes, living on the edge though kinda has a heavy price to pay, things happen and sometimes that edge gets a little bit too close and something has to give, for now its the photography. But it won't always be that way Wink

Finally, keep on takin them photo's, enjoy it, have a happy Christmas and all the best for the New Year.

Sorry to see you go Neil - I hope to bump into you in the Lakes sometime, have fun.
