OK folks with the help of Adam the LP image is now the right one please enjoy.
It would seem New years day was a day for Landscape Photo's what with Miles and Paul both posting superb images, well here is my offering from a little further north almost half way up the UK in the North of Liecestershire under a thick blanket of clouds the land takes a drop over a fault line into Nottinghamshire you can see in the distance.
These particular trees you have probably veiwed before if you have not then take a look now. Black Ash . The title of it would seem to be wrong as I took the chance to have a close look at the bark and buds and they are part of a row of mature Sycamore's (Acer pseudoplatanus) , not strictly a native to the UK as it seems to of needed the romans to re-import it after the last ice age but it is one tuff tree being able to with-stand loads of pollution and exposed conditions , the little winged flying fruit mange to spread it far and wide, in some places it manages to become the only plant to surrive, which means that some people class it as a weed. though in more enlightened times the fine white timber was much valued and when the oil runs out nodoubt it will again. In the mean time enjoy the view and I get thefealing I shall have to revist this scene as the seasons pass to record the changes.
Happy New Year to All

Hi Robert,
this is so wonderful, so quiet and peaceful, a beautiful place to be - even in these grey days. Thank you very much, bye

This is quite a cool image!(Five in a row!)
Don't bother by the size, it looks great the way it is.

Regards, Petru

Hi Robert,
Very good LP, nothing wrong, it works ok.
The compostion and POV are very good.
I like the colours.
Very well done.

Hi Robert,
Not bad at all!
I like the composition, the big tree in the left and the smaller ones to the right side. Your photo reflects the right atmosphere of the day. Good foreground.
Regards, Ruud

He Robert,

All the best for the New Year.
I saw your picture and indee it is big when you click on it! How do you manage that??

It is a nice landscape. I can use it for drawing trees.



Hello Robert, I clicked on the LP before I read your note..oops! Perhaps a bit too much L in your P ;-)) A well composed WA view with very good color and use of ambient light..Well done.
Thank You!

Hi Rob, nice composition. I quite like the colour tones. In the large version there appear to be some chromatic abberation - you can see fringes around the branches. AdrianW has some tricks to get rid of these, but I can't do them as you need CS2. Well done.

Five nice Sycamores, Robert.
Add some snow and frost and they could have been taken here ;-)
I look forward to see the right LP.
Thank you. Your note is interesting too.

How strange the large image is a mirror image of the smaller one. I wouldn't have noticed except I love the way the trees lead off to the right getting smaller and smaller in the smaller image....then upon opening the larger one they got smaller towards the left. I think this row of trees is very visually beautiful, the dark branches against the grey sky. I'm looking forward to you taking photos in the other 3 seasons too! Very nice.

Hi Robert
Best for 2006 as well.
Very nice, love the postbox format
Five, and the slight slope, really makes it for me
Take care

Olá Robert,
Bonita imagem, siluetas perfeitas e esse céu acinzentado da uma impressão sombria das árvoes. Muito bem concebida.

Nifty lil trick Rob to flip the photo while you were at it!

This is the first HUGE panorama I have seen done that way! And what a great result! In fact I think I be doing the backstroke in my gallery soon!

I have found that few people realize that panoramas are there unless you BOLDLY tell 'em eh! The sad thing is that the miniature generally becomes less inviting cause of the sides ratio... But we prevail! Tfs, J.

PS I finally got organized and put up a wet blue one in addition to the not so hot ice panorama ...

"Jay did it, & Jay did it", ... U can 2!
