A clever composition with the wheels and the snow 'lifts' the shady side very well.

Terrific contrast control again and no lens flare either! The snow makes a good lead in until it takes you out of frame at the right but I think the sun is strong enough to pull the eye away and onwards!

Thanks for your positive comments everyone. Regarding the sun flare, although i shoot both raw and jpeg i process the jpeg and if you mess too much with the jpeg especially the sun it will kick you in the teeth, so i try to get it right on location using my trusty .9 ND soft grad. filter.
The clever bit about this comp. Alan is the 'y ' shaped snow, althouth it takes you out on the right the snow on the back of left millstone keeps your eye back in the frame, also the position of the millstone lies just below band of dark cloud which is almost in line with the sun. This shot almost qualifies for what i call a complex composition, something that has more than just the subject and light in it, the more shapes, lines, diagonals, symmetry,balance, points of interest in the frame the more i like it.

Even though I prefer the last one this is still a stunner. The light is excellent!GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin
Just one question, why do you prefer to process the jpegs? I also shoot in both formats but only process the RAWS as it gives you more possibilities.

Thanks Ryan, the reason that i process the jpeg instead of raw is because my adobe CS5 extended is not compatible with the new nikon d800, i have downloaded the camera raw 6.7 plug in to suit the d800 but for some reason the CS5 will not install it. I've checked the forums and people with the extended version seem to have problems. I sometimes use the nikon nx2 and save to tiff but i'm not as quick and it's not as versatile as when i was using the CS5 to process raw from my canon 5d mk2. To be honest i don't enjoy the processing, i'd rather be out doing photography than doing photoshopy.

My friend (chris-p) he bought the d800 and I think he went to CS6 as I think he had a bit of trouble. Personally though I enjoy the processing side. I like turning good photo's into great ones (well some anyway!Tongue)
