    Oh! I think I like this better than #1….hope you don’t mind me saying that?! Great composition and colours Garth……very lovely :)

  • Thank you for your comments Shelly.
    I dont mind at all if you like one better than the other, lifes like that. It would be pretty boring if we all liked exactly the same thing with no variation. I actually like hearing peoples preferences.

    Excellent Garth… incredible curvature of the if on the edge of the world

  • Thank you Jim, yes it does look a bit like that, I hadnt looked at it in that way, thank you, almost looks like a land bridge.

    Another WOW shot there Garth! I am really going to look into these ND’s! They seem to allow such saturation and smoothness, with the slower shutter speed! Of course, you have to have your eye to see the image in the first place! Wonderful work!

  • Thank you very much Vicki, yes they definitely help to keep colour and stop blown highlights. First one to buy would be a 3 stop graduated neutral density.

    Wanna buy a photo or ten so I can afford one?!! Happened to see the price of CLPolar in a shop the other day – they weren’t that dear when I bought mine!!! Thanks for your help Garth!

  • I know exactly what you mean Vicki, what used to be $30 is now $150.

    The macon blade is still there, Garth! – the rower in me is emerging here! Great shot, excellent composition.

  • Thank you David, not a bad effort for a bottom of the range Nikon eh? ;-)
