Hi Sam

I like these recent shots and prefer these to your heavily reworked ones. They have a natural look about them.

Pin sharp from front to back. What lens are you using on your 5D, is it L series?

Regards. Kenny

Hi Kenny, your comment naturally leads me to wondering which shotsyou feel are heavily reworked and especially since these latest offerings are edited in much the same way as most of what I did during 2012. I have a tendency to stick to the same workflow with the only exceptions being night shots which require a different approach.. Re the lens it certainly is L series because for me only 2 things matter, the quality of the glass and the sensor on which all light is captured hence the present kit.

Cheers for your visit.

Thanks again Andy, wishing you all the best for 2013.

Hi Sam

I have looked back through your gallery but can't find the shots I referred to. An example is the lealholm shots and other countryside shots taken at a similar time. It's just the colours seem too strong,especially the grass. Whilst picturesque they are more like a drawn or painted picture too even without imperfection. Even so, it was these I admired and encouraged me to add you as a favourite photographer. Your newer shots have a more natural look and are, without doubt sharper. For me the sharpness gives it the pro quality.

L glass is a dream. I hired a 300mm for bird photography once and I was astounded at the increase in sharpness. Coupled with your 5D I'm sure you will produce some astounding shots and please keep uploading to Pano.

Sorry Sam, you'll need to do a bit better than this tha knows, i can't read the names of those two ships;-)) Only kidding mate cos there's some serious detail on here,i just hope people view it full size. I know you rate your "hut" shot for detail,rightly so too,but for me i think this just pips it,its all there,from the Lucozade bottle to the guy wires on the two stacks directly above Bethany Anne,not forgetting the felt nails on Noahs Ark...good job done;-))

Oh I will Kenny :o)

Now then Neil tha can't go mekkin out as I've fallen short just cos thou's lost thi glasses again ( they'll be on your head as usual) :o))
I'll put the original on a card for next time I come up yours so you can see it as large as I can. I agree with this being the better image but for me that is because there is much more to see and it's a nicer scene than t'uts.

cheers me auld mukker.
