Lake District - Abstract Set

A few may have seen that I've posted some pics on the Gallery this week from a visit to Ullswater last Saturday. Here are some more, this set leans more toward the abstract rather than traditional Lake District views. I'll post the more traditional ones in another set later. Hope you like, please comment and let me know what you think. The images are a mix of the K-3 and K-5iis, various lenses including DA L 55-300, Pentax-M 28mm F3.5, Sigma 17-70 F2.8-4 HSM OS and Samsung D-Xenon 12-24 (equivalent of Pentax DA 12-24).

Reeds in the mist is the stand out one for me. Composition, colour, and exposure is just right. Lovely image

A good selection, they have a unifying tone and emphasis....I don't see them as 'abstract', rather as original takes on the scenes, mini-views and unique perspectives. The first three are great, as is the misty 'compressed perspective' one.

They all take advantage of the generally dull conditions, when a lot of people would come away with nothing much. It's only the last one that I believe is lacking some essential light.

Reeds in the mist is also the top choice for me. The glassy surface of the foreground water and the recession to the distant band of light is delicious. But they are all fine. As Nigel says its good to see you coming away with some delightful results from the prevailing dull conditions. I also agree with Nigel when he says they are not strictly abstract, for me they are more micro landscape in style.

Good selection, I agree with a previous poster, less abstracts more vignettes. I like the colours and composition of no 2 particularly

Fantastic. Not sure I'd classify them as abstract but then, what do I know 1,2,3 and 4 would be my picks. Love Reeds in the Mist. The whole set is beautifully subtle.

A fabulous set, rapids downstream for me, with Reeds in the mist a close second

I think we have settled it for sure by now .... David is not allowed to call them 'abstracts' any more

Terrific set David - really floats my boat . Very productive trip!!!

As they've said, Reeds in the Mist is just terrific, but compressed perspective and surging force also capture my eye!

But just great to see this whole set.

Hi All

Sorry about the 'abstracts' description, but believe me for me these are abstract compared my normal output! I shall not disappoint as I will be posting a set later which are traditional landscape

A good set David. The reeds in the mist is really good.

Best regards
