Mike, the third with the bird impacted me. Beautifull and powerfull.

I agree, for me the third shot is the most compelling shot I have seen so far, out of many, many wonderful shots.

I think it's substantially due to the cloud swirl vortex in the right hand side of that image....portending some very dramatic turbulence and likely a cause for the osprey to go soaring....

Thanks for saying so!

It's getting so that I don't remember what I've put in this thread, but I think these are new:

P.S.  The seventh one with the twotters (aircraft) was a series of handheld images of one plane, joined in Autopano Pro.  The software took out the 'ghosts' of the overlaps, but left three distinct planes in the combined image.  No DOT rules were broken!

Great shots, Mike. I particularly like the fourth one.

Amboseli, looking the "wrong" way at sunset.

Doesn't appear to be any 'wrong' way to look around there!

I love this one Bill - it is so evocative of those summer days when harvest is almost upon us and summer clouds start bubbling up. I can just smell the dusty wheat and feel the breeze on my face. Has a nice IR feel to it. (I'm a sucker for "field studies")

Another very nice one. I like the wheat fields very much, too.

Thanks Mike. Here are a few more that I have shot while having breakfast. I normally get up very early to go to work (at 6 am); this particularly morning I was opening the windows in the kitchen when I noticed the cloud formations, lit by the rising sun. I went to fetch my little Panasonic GF1 with 20mm lens, and grabed a few shots.

This one has a nice, Stieglitian "Equivalent" air to it.

The first is an attempt at doing something 'arty' - shot yesterday at a local spot, Hestercombe House. The following two (both more straightforward B&W land/skyscapes) were both taken on the north Devon coastpath, walking towards the Valley of the Rocks.

The first one doesn't really work for me - too much just black, I think, and the chapel gets kinda lost.  The second one has really nice clouds, but with the path on the bottom my eye thinks that the path should be the dominant subject and yet it's crowded into the bottom of the frame.  The third one is really intriguing!  Had me rolling my head around and around try to find the 'This Way Up' arrow!!

I agree with Mike on all three. The third is quite disconcerting but nevertheless pleasing. I'm not sure how much I'd enjoy having a huge print of it on my wall, though!
