Hi Stephen
I don't know if you still visit here, but I thought I'd post a comment anyway.
All of your landscapes are stunning but this is something else! Absolutely amazing! The sky is almost once-in-a-lifetime good and the work you have done with the blues in the water is excellent. Absolutely breathtaking.
If I were to criticise anything I'd say that I wish that the rock in the bottom left corner wasn't there.

Hi Horia
I thought it appropriate that I should comment on your Wild Garlic photo in return for your very useful critique on my bluebells one!
Although they are not as attractive as the lovely bluebells, I think that the similar environment makes for a lovely photo. Low growing plants that grow as a carpet in woods....and especially with a sloping ground. I wish that I could find a bluebell wood on a slope!
Your panoramic crop makes the most of this as well.
An excellent photo!

Attractive flowers and you've captured them pretty well considering the harsh light.

What a great moment to capture!
I wonder what caused the dragonfly to do such a thing?!

Hi Nicholas.
I see that you have been bitten by the TN bug! Within a couple of years you have gone from a beginner with a Fuji compact to someone who takes great shots like this with a couple of grand's worth of kit! :)
A beautiful picture, superb clarity, but I would expect nothing less from this lens!
Andy.

A very nice view captured in lovely golden light.
I would have liked to see just a touch more foregrounds, as the nearest rock is too close to the edge of the frame.

Really interesting fungi and complementing surroundings make this a great fungi shot. I especially like the low angle that allows the viewer to look past the undergrowth and further out to other parts of the forest. Makes me want to go there and explore.

The butterfly is beautiful and the cactus really makes this a striking image. Maybe a touch over-exposed but still OK.

Fantastic shot. Perfect DOF, all of the bird is extremely sharp and just beyond starts to blur straight away, and the background is almost just a single colour. Can't help thinking that the composition could be improved, possibly with a little crop on the right.

Every sunset is beautiful but this is something extra! The mountain ranges are just enough in the photo to provide some extra interest and the detail in the clouds is lovely. Maybe if you had waited a few more minutes, the colours would have been even more intense?
