Good evening all,

Just got back from a week away in Devon. Here are my favourites taken from Dartmoor one afternoon, all processed from the RAW files using Silkipix. C&C welcome.

Lovely set Matt. Wonderful colours. One of my most favourite places in Britain

Nice shots and I especially like the first one. It may be just my monitor but the land part of the shots looks a bit over-saturated to me. Perhaps someone with a calibrated monitor could comment.

Best wishes, Kris.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

No. 2 for me, but stunning light in all of them. It's great to have light like that and be in the right place.

Wonderful shots - really capture the place I think. I love the simplicity of number 5. Very nice

Such light!

1 and 2 for me, the virga (note - not virgum) looks great.

In my experience, it's essential to have interesting light when photographing Dartmoor. It's extremely difficult to come away with decent shots. The landscape is great to look at and walk about in, but (close-ups of the tors excepted) hard to portray.

This is a decent set with no.2 the pick.

Best wishes,

Andrew

Great light and a great set! I especially like the rain (?) and view in the first one. Lovely colours in the last one too.

Thanks guys. The light really was great. I took a few on another day with much more diffuse light and they don't really work except as snap shots.

Matt, i'd be interested to see some of these converted to B&W.

For the second one I actually ended up creating two JPEGs from the raw file and blending them in CS4. As much as I love B&W, I prefer the colour versions of this set. Are there any other images you want to see in B&W?
