I actually went to Burbage this morning to try out a new 10 stop filter but within seconds there were hundreds of midges buzzing round me so I gave this up, went home and had a look through some pictures I'd taken earlier this year with a fresh eye.

No 1



No 2



No 3



No 4



No 5



No 6 (something about this I like)



No 7



No 8



C&C welcome, only just started to get a bit more into taking landscapes.

Regards

George

Nice set, did you have a filter on for these? if so what do you use?
C&C welcome.

No 7 appeals to me the most - great composition and the lighting on the sheep makes it for me.

My wife and I got hold of some midge headnets (not mosquito - mesh is too large) for Scotland. You look a bit silly in them, but you don't care about that when the midges are out in force!!

For these I didnt use a filter (although I have since started to use them), all shot in raw and underexposed with shadows recovered in lightroom. Added graduated filters in lightroom as well.

No 7 is possibly my favorite as well, shame there a bit of sun flare on it though. Could have done with the midge headnet the other day, it was like the dinner bell had been rung as I got there !

Some great compositions in here George, number 2 being probably my favourite.

I do think though that they suffer in general for having been taken without a ND Graduated filter; the balance between sky and ground is a fight in some of them. I noted your observation in another thread that you have started to use filters and I think this will benefit your landscapes massively.

Nice skies, I really like 2 and 7, they just work better in my eyes.

I like No.2. No.4 would look great in mono if you used the big stopper and had good cloud movement

David, i agree they would have probably been better with a grad filter, I'm still quite pleased with how they came out as I was out with the family at the time (can be seen in No 5) so just grabbed the camera on the way out of the door.

Hopefully will get a chance to use the 10 stop filter soon !
