Barn Owl

Barn OwlBeautiful shot Scott. The detail is superb.
Here's a tip for you if you use photoshop. Use a hue/ saturation layer to desaturate (make it less colourful) the image then paint the bird back in( to make it the same colour as it was). It'll make the bird stand out even more.
Hope that is of some use. If you need any more info drop me a PM!

CastleriggHi Tony. Another great looking shot with a very good comp. The gap indeed does lead you to the light beautifully. I've done a quick mod as the one thing I thought was the midground didn't separate tonally from the foreground, so I've darkened the shadows on the hills using a curves layer. Thought this might put some separation between the stones and that great light out back.
Nice to know what you think!

Burbage Moor

Burbage MoorGot to agree with everyone and go for V1
There's not much of interest on the RH side in V2 only the small hillock and that's just drawing you out of the shot.
The tones are wonderful.
I did wonder if taking about 1-2 centimetres off the top and RH side might work too? One reason for this would be to remove the bright patch of heather in the bottom right. It does slightly catch the eye and also to create a less central horizon.
Just suggestion and by no way criticisms.

OakThe leaf is a strong focal point and does dominate the shot. The movement of the water has made a stunning abstract pattern but I don't think it would work on its own, so the leaf is adding some detail and interest. I wonder if toning the leaf down a bit would help to balance the two ingredients of this shot a bit more???
Visually it does look stunning though and it is very well taken.
