    Surprise!!
    I knew you would have been on-the-ball, so came to spy. ☺ I have an almost identical image of both this and the one through the window! Alas mine still sit in RAW state. I must get my act together!
    You have captured this perfectly; just as I remember it. I don't think I have ever seen such dramatic weather. Those clouds were remarkable.

    Hello! A great action shot, and you have captured it very well! The sand kicked up, the tail fully splayed, and her hair flying--all of these show the speed and dexterity of the turn. You have done well to catch it all in such good focus! Perhaps a slight darkening of the photo might improve the contrast, but all in all, a very good picture! TFS! Linda

    Hello Joe! This is an exceptionally beautiful photo! Your POV really portrays the lushness of the fall colours, and shows off the church gloriously. The sunlight highlighting the foliage is splendid. I've been to Grasmere, but never saw it like this! Well done! TFS! Linda

    Hello Roland! Your photo has captured the hues of shadow and sky, ground, and water that are seen in March. There is something about the sun and shadows this time of the year that makes for this unique colouring. Great that you show it off so well! Thank you for sharing, Linda

    Beautiful scene! Great technique to place the fir trees slightly off centre to put the emphasis on the icy river. Interesting to see the currents running at all angles. Just a brilliant photo! TFS!

    Hello Jean! Great POV for this shot, so much activity from that angle! The yarn moving onto the spindle, the action of the wheel, all this contrasted with the serene face of the heritage volunteer. Great job! TFS! Linda

    F14 has given you excellent depth with front to back sharpness although I detect softening because of down-sizing. I see you have adjusted that yourself in a WS. It isn't an issue with this image but sharpening an image overall, can affect the sky and make it look 'noisy', or make tiny leaves look over-sharpened. I always sharpen on a layer and then any parts that don't need sharpening can be erased. (just a tip you might find useful in the future)
    The composition is good with the perspective of the viaduct leading the eye into the scene in one direction and the wall and stream doing the same job in the other direction.
    Evening light is always good for photography but watch out for it being too yellow. I detect a colour cast, so I tried a WS.
    All-in-all well worth getting away from auto. Keep up the good work.

    I'm in TE snooze mode, getting ready for Friday, but stopping for a cuppa I just have to see what's happening! You mastered the strong light here taking the exposure from the brightly lit church. The darker surroundings emphasise the framing quality of the trees and shadows.
    Hope to see you in March!
    Love to Larry too

    It's as grey as this outside my window today but without snow fortunately. As usual a very well composed image with excellent use of the fence sweeping into the scene.
    I'm on 'snooze' mode at the moment getting ready for the exodus on Friday.

    Your initiative was a wonderful success. I have valiantly tried following the forum thread about some members who had images deleted (Difficult for me with French)That brought me here and I wanted to say how I admire your attitude and common sense. Your WS to this post is a perfect way to explain and I agree wholeheartedly with you.
    Lovely colours on this one; bright and cheery to continue the good mood!

    You raise an interesting point about the way sunsets are viewed by some. I hesitated before posting the sunset "Clouds make a Sunset" a week or more ago, for the same reason. I think it could be that there are many sunsets which have nothing else to offer by way of a composition. They can be just a sunset sky with big black areas which tell nothing. That is not the case here. The light on the sea is stunning and it reveals the wave patterns. You also chose an excellent POV so the shoreline leads the eye into the scene, hopping from rock to rock. Excellent shot!

    PS At the moment I can't read replies. I think it's a common fault since the new forum was set up.
    I'm off on a trip soon so will be away from TE for quite a while
