Welcome to my corner of ePhotozine.

I love all aspects of photography. But my true passion is Black & White the tones, textures is what holds my attention. Of late my work is moving more into the surreal creative genre, but I still love the early morning sunrise, there's something magical about the dawn of a day.

GrinAn update is well overdue. My interest in photography stretches back to school days. Over the years I've had an Olympus OM10 (super camera), a Nikon F70. Both of which I still have, together with the darkroom equipment (well its somewhere in the garage!) But that is where the love affair with Black and White photography began.

When Christmas shopping in 2006 I made an impulse buy at Jessops (I know) and entered the digital era with the Nikon D80.

Since then its been a journey, 2X D300's - the first one took a swim in the English channel, and now I've got the D700 which is just brilliant.

I have very eclectic tastes, and have tried my hand at most photographic genres, including wildlife, candid photography, land/Seascapes even digital manipulations. Maybe my work would improve if I didn't keep chopping and changing! Although I always return to Black and White photography.

more images can be seen on my web site at www.nickwaltonphotography.co.uk

You have a wonderful collection of images here, Nick! I love the way your compositions and interpretations capture the essence of the places you photograph...
I'd hoped to get down to the Cromford Exhibition, but I'm away that week, sadly. I've bookmarked your Photium website, though... Great stuff!

Just thought I'd catch up with the comments. Thank you everyone most appreciated. Thanks for the PF critique Alan. The examples you state are well known to me, both Nigel & Patrick are in my favourites, and the Moon and Half Dome image from Ansel Adams is still probably my favourite mono landscape image of all time, a photographer we all owe a big favour to as his zone system is the basis of modern metering.

As for the digital manipulations, well I'm still learning Wink

Oh and I'd love a 500/600mm lens one day....

1. What do you like of their PF (if you do)?

I like the high standard of work and understanding of the photographic process Nick shows. Also the warm toned land and seascapes are beautifully composed and processed.

2. What do you think is lacking in their PF?

Composit and digital art work. I have to say though, there is plenty of variety in his portfolio and Nick's website shows this to be the case, so maybe digital manipulation is the wrong direction for him to try.

3. How do you think they can improve their PF?

I think Nick will improve naturally with time and I think he's on the right track with what he produces.

A longer lens, say a 500mm or a 600mm, would give him greater scope for wildlife shooting.

4. What do you like to see in their PF?

I like Nick's land and seascapes the most as they connect with me more than the rest of his work, although I like the seal shots and the night shots too.

5. Whose work would you recommend them to have a look at (if you know any)?

Nigel Pye's wildlife work is superb ( the wader shots are excellent ) and Patrick Smith's land and seascapes are intelligent and very high quality imo. Particularly this one. And this one.

I think a look at Ansel Adams' mono lanscapes wouldn't do any harm either.

Hi Nick,

It seems to me that the amount of votes that an image gets on EPZ is a really good barometer and you would'nt need to plot a graph to work out the direction your images have been going...Smile

A cracking PF Nick and I hope that I go in a similar direction this year...Smile
