    Lovely photos David.

    The first is my favourite, but I feel you need to loose about an inch off the right side!

    Like this (hope you don't mind):


    I feel the dark area detracts from the photo.

    I agree with Fen that they are brilliant shots.
    My favourite is the "soup bowl" with the light illuminating the centre- that's fantastic :D

    Hi Fen. No I don't mind and I see what you mean about the dark area at this size but the detail is retained in the large version and doesn't look as unbalanced as it does here.

    Thanks, David.

    I agree that these are nice pics, I love the lake district and try to get there every year if possible.

    I also agree with the crop Fen, looks much better with less of the dark side.

    David - Any chance of posting a link to larger version of the first picture to see what you're saying?

    Sorry, Fen. I never upload anything bigger than 600pixels or 75-80k.

    lovey. very well taken.

    ps. I prefer the uncropped version just because I feel this image looks better with a more rectangular shape to it.

    All great, but I agree with others that pick out the first one as their favourite. It's a beautiful picture.

    Fantastic pictures there David
    You must have spent ages up there waiting for the light to be just so.
