    First i need to apologise for not being able (time wise) to spend more time and comment on pictures (some of them superb) of other members , some times i wish there were more than 24 hours in a day.

    About the picture now.
    My eye caught this tree while i was driving around the isle of Bute and i just loved its isolation , just standing there on its own in an empty field waiting for someone to take its picture.
    Well,i couldn`t resist.

    12 mm on a full frame camera.

    I wll be ordering my new Sigma 10-20 lens at the end of the month..

    Cant wait, I so much needed the extra few degrees of coverage at a wedding yesterday for a big group shot.

    And of course, I can use it for shots like this............

    Great photo. I wish I could convince my wife how much we need a Sigma 10-20 more than school uniforms for the kids!

    Come north of the border and you won't miss it. Still, if you do, Northumbria and Cumbria are not far away.

    Seriously though, if you can arrange a week/10 days/fortnight photo trip up here, you'll find yourself surrounded by photogenic stuff all the time. Unless you go to the Buckfast triangle, of course.

    Well I've been to Buckfast Abbey but that's in Devon and I don't suppose the triangle's THAT big! /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    You'd be surprised. Anyway, the abbey's alcoholic bevy is the drink of choice in the Buckfast triangle (east of Glasgow).

    Sorry Dmitri, we've gone off topic! :eek:

    Amazing how Abbotts seem to brew the best alcohol!

    BTW, Is it National Avatar Changing Day? (1st Chris Brookes, now you?) ;)

    LOL !!! I just got sick of my gosling, for some reason though I cannot get as nicely detailed avatars as everyone else !
  14. fabs

    fabs Well-Known Member

    I think a lot download avatars from various sites. I believe this one is popular.

    Me? I just took a picture of myself in a mirror! ;)

    Stunning as always! - looking at the exif I see this was done on your 12-24, I was particularly interest in seeing the set up with the Cokin x holder fitted to the lens you are showing on the site – could you give some details about how you find it works as a system, plus have you used it with a polar filter??
    Feeling grumpy now as I turned down second-hand X kit going for a song, I was basically offered the holder plus some grads for £50 – Bum!!!
  16. Dimitri_Vasiliou

    Dimitri_Vasiliou Well-Known Member

    £ 50 ???
    wow,thats a great deal.
    I find that it works well with one grad on it although the very top gets a bit dark if you include too much sky in the frame but if used sensibly it seems good.
    I`ll create a PDF file soon and upload it here for the other members to see how the system works.

    What a great image. Nice work with that, Dimitri ;)

    as always simply stunning, you are a great example of what can be achieved, only posting images of a very very high standard. Now I do wish I could move up there for 10 to 20 days a year, far better skies than even gods country here. :cool:
