    Hi, I wish you a rapid recovery from the op. Simply superb Castlerigg composition, it is so hard to get good separation between the stones and the background. Despite that comment I think #2 is my favourite of the set. The last one is spoiled by the contrail that cuts venus which is a real shame as this must have taken some planning.

    RovingMike Crucifixion's a doddle...

    Bit heavy on the burning, but I like them. Castle rig is a lesson in how to get a performance out of what can be a very boring scene.

    First of all: best wishes for a speedy recovery from your operation.

    Re- the images - a nice set, but with some a little (for my taste) over-saturated. For me, the first wins by a mile - a captivating image.

    Thank you all.
    @RovingMike its a technique im trying to learn these are the first images ive tried it on, im sure over time i will get it just right. its like when one first starts photography and your always messing with the clarity sliders :) thanks for the feedback

    @peterba #2 was really like that i actually reduced the saturation and vibrancy. But i know some people like a subtle pallet thats ok thanks for your feedback.

    Yes, my apologies - I didn't mean to imply that you had actually added saturation. It's rather that I find that digital camera output is often over-saturated anyway, and I tend to reduce saturation on almost every colour image that I produce. Having said that, I don't produce many colour images - most of my output is mono.

    Incidentally, FWIW, I reckon I would print your ICM Hell's Mouth image at a good size and hang it on the wall. It's more like a painting than a photograph (and that's a compliment - not criticism;)).

    one of the reasons i swapped to sony was i found canons colours to saturated , i like the muted colours and more natural tones of the sony sensors.

    thanks for the compliment :)

    A very nice set of images and worth waiting for.

    Best wishes for your recovery.

    Hope your recovery goes well.

    What a superb set of photos to look at. I particularly like the beach scene - almost abstract - and the stone circle. I could live with them on a wall. I look forward to seeing more from you.

    Dear Danski,
    # 1 is the corker for me. It's a Sugimotian blurry sight of a seascape. Superb! In my humble eyes.
    Cheers,
    Luis
