A quick view of salopian's recent activity.

  • Fresia

    As John says there is a lot to like about this shot - a lovely sense of freshness for one thing.
    I'm a bit puzzled by the blue/purple area on the larger, darker petal and a smaller, similar highlight on the one above. Would this effect be connected with the LED lighting. They draw the eye to some extent - nice image though.

  • Second Severn Crossing on a Foggy Day

    An effective shot and some very interesting mods. These tend to show up the faint vapour trail ( towards top left ) more than the original. It looks rather like a faint scratch on first viewing, so I have roughly cloned this out on a square cropped mod ( as per SWMBO ! ) together with the nearest lighting pole which seemed a little intrusive. It has come out rather darker than I intended but gives an idea of an alternative version.
    The original conveys a very calm feeling though.

    What a lovely set of shots. As Paul commented the colour versions give a wonderful deep blue sky and, as usual, Moira's mods ( ruthless or not ! )are very interesting and I enjoy the comments between the two of you !
    Come to think of it, I think the comments your attractive shots provoke make them even more pleasant and instructive viewing.

  • Sunset on Clee, tranquil, silent and care and stress free

    You timed this very well and it certainly produces the silent, serene atmosphere you describe. Clee Hill is quite small in the frame but it's distinct shape shows up nicely. Cropping some of the sky and foreground makes it more prominent and produces a semi panoramic view, which seems to make the shot even more restful?

    Like Pamela, I was very drawn to this by the thumbnail with the lovely orange light in the archway.
    Lots of good advice and comment above. My only thought was to try a vertical crop as an alternative, to concentrate on the arch and that glorious orange.

  • Balnakeil in Sutherland

    A most attractive, fresh scene - can almost smell the salty breeze !
    Lots of good comments and advice above. With regard to John's comment that it may be a little busy and might be simplified, I was waiting for one of Moira's excellent square crops, but she has produced some other excellent mods instead, so I have taken it upon myself to follow in the mistress's footsteps to create a square mod cropping off some of the foreground rocks in a bid to simplify the shot slightly.

    Good to see your fascinating photos again. John's mod makes a lovely shot even better. My only thought was to crop some off the bottom and concentrate on the flood lit areas, but that would mean losing some of the nicely detailed rock formations so perhaps better left as it is. Look forward to seeing some more of your Spanish trip.
