    Wonderful. Love the first and second is great too. Your Buttermere Pines is a new take on an old fave too. Very un-Charlie Waite. Well done.

    I think 2 first for me, then 1. The others don't connect so much. In 2 there is an indistinct blob to the right of the vanishing point of the river where the trees merge together. I've no idea what to do with it but it is so close to the focal point that it stands out rather than slips away.

    Indistinct blob? You'll have Wainright fans round your neck.

    It is one of the most famous landmarks in the area:https://flic.kr/p/4FF6kP

    They are all great - I like the "into the light" feeling of the road shot - but tops for me has to be the pines - it's the sense of scale that the empty space around them gives.

    They would all pass my wall test, but that one I'd have as a mural.

    I meant the mass of branches between the two trees just below where the further tree breaks the sky line. On my ipad it makes a black area that is distracting from the general level of detail.

    Looks OK on mine.

    I'm away so limited to ipad 2. Just in case we are at cross purposes it is river brathay shot I meant, not Buttermere ( if that is the last one).

    Ah, gotcha, now we know we can read where it says "photo 2" in your original comment...:oops:

    There is a bit, isn't there. I wonder if its an artefact of scaling?

    Ah, me being dumb. But no, looks OK on mine.

    All good but the 1st gets my vote - that sky really makes it. :D

    The second comes close too...

    Thanks for that Mike

    Thanks Pete
    That blob is a combination of background and foreground trees making a dark patch it probably needs to be lightened

    Thanks Adrian
    I hope we get some nice light when you are up this way next

    Thanks Nigel

    You and me both - apart from the likelihood of a photo trip, there are hills to bag! I don't see a lot of daylight at work, so I aim to make the most of it!
