A quick view of salopian's recent activity.

  • Morning

    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.

    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.

  • The Moon and Venus

    Thanks for the feedback folks - I did wonder whether to post it as the heavenly bodies were so small.
    Keith - I didn't use the full tele capability of the lens as I couldn't include any foreground at that setting and if I had waited for the moon to get nearer the horizon the sky would have had no colour at all.
    John - yes the manual focus on the X20 is non too precise and I seem to remember the X10 was the same. The mod is a definite improvement - thanks. I will have to get out when the weather warms up a bit as double glazing does not improve sharpness !!

    A lovely warm and interesting shot as it is presented - shooting through the patterned glass was a great idea,- but John's first mod makes it even better. Having said that I would have been very pleased if I had taken the original ! Very good shot.

  • Clear reflection

    An interesting shot in it's own right but Robert's mod really makes it outstanding.

  • Bass Rock Storm

    A very attractive and dramatic image, I imagine it was taken from North Berwick beach from what I remember of a holiday up there some years ago. The dynamic breakers in the foreground really set off the static lump of volcanic rock behind and, as you say, the seagull is a bonus.
    I have produced a mod reducing the blue tone a little and cropping in to concentrate on the rock even more. Just an alternative idea
    Lovely shot though.
