Completely agree with you and thanks for 'plain speaking'. Personally I found the 'Cold' image the most dynamic and it could've been warmed a tad in ACR (or Color efex or ..... whatever). The subtleties of Irish and British lanscapes are rich and immense. Often it's like trying to shoot a complex tweed. Those that succeed for me either blow me away with drama (high contrast moors with storms) or mesmerise me with light (the tweed effect of biological richness). This guy doesn't manange either for me.

For what it's worth I prefer the tonal balance achieved by the ND Grad in the first shot but have to agree about the tension in the shape of the tree being lost in the background. Maybe this means that getting nearly 100% in camera rather that relying on PP is the way to go with Landscape?

What a beatiful shot! Thank You.
I really miss that kind of cold and the absolute clarity it brings - I used to live in Wisconsin but for many years now live in the damp S.W. of England.

Thanks again for the shot

Ttis is a lovely, lovely image. Made my morning, Thank You. It feels northern European - where is it?

Best,
Kevin

Well, I think that his is a beautifully atmospheric shot with great subtlety of focus and, for my money, should have taken 1st place.

Thanks for sharing it.
