A quick view of salopian's recent activity.

    I'm with Paul on this - Just goes to show the truth of a comment made to me years ago by an old portrait pro - "90% of people look better with their clothes on"! This is right in your face and the legs look ugly in this pose. A little more gentle suggestion as Moira and Tanya explain would be the way to go I think.
    Mind you I wouldn't mind having thigh muscles like that!

    Very much a "wish I was there shot" and very pleasant viewing on a dull Autumn day Little to comment on except ,as has been said, a lower viewpoint could have brought the foreground and background closer together The added bonus is that two other beautiful shots are there ( as in the mods ) - three great shots with one press of the finger - pure genius !

    This took my eye straightaway as some (many!) years ago I took a shot from this very spot with my Pentax ME Super and 400 Fuji film. The rocks have very interesting shapes and the area can look really dramatic after heavy rain. Very little seems to have changed over the years and you have captured the scene very well.
    John's mod just puts the icing on the cake.

    Nice colours and shapes and the water looks splendid, though John's mod gives it even more texture.
    I think this is the one you have to approach through the pub ( handy ! ) and I remember you can walk behind it. Hardraw force ?

    Shows this powerful Grumman Bearcat off very well and it looks as though it means business !
    John's mod is very good - correcting the tilt makes a big difference as does the colour adjustment.

  • Duxford 2016 - Two Legends

    A good shot of two fine aircraft nicely positioned and with the shutter speed just right to show the propeller movement. It does benefit from the mods where the colours are improved.
    Incidentally, my late wife used to work as an airframe fitter on the Sea Fury (nearest ) when she was in the Wrens in the 50s.

    What a treasure trove ! The high jump,(3) is a good show of emotions - the exultation of the jumper and the tubby lad stroking his chin wondering if he could do that. 12 brings back memories for me as I have a pic of myself in just the same pose with an almost identical low wing model plane. Taken somewhat earlier than yours though - late 1940s !
