I thought since I'd put a couple of shots on I might as well add a third!

I've called this halfway because that's always how it seems to me. This is the point at Padley Gorge just ahead of the footbridge and looking up the hill. It is in fact my favourite part of the Gorge and each time I visit I try to find different angles.

Always before, I've concentrated on a tighter crop but using tone mapping has openend up further possibilities. This image has been constructed from three separarate exposures. Still playing with the software to try to understand it's capacities but I'm pleased with this result.

Hope you enjoy it too and thanks for your clicks, comments and critique.

Nice one - like the shadows and the blue of the sky which can often appear as a bland white canvas.

Everything just seems so warm and natural...

This one is a corker Nick,prefer it to yesterdays. It has more colour and contrast and I would say that the overall exposure is spot on,
