    I love those shots! Especially the second one - the sky looks amazing - somewhat surreal!

    Since no detailed critique is requested for these two photos, and since there are two instead of only one for which some very detailed critique is being requested, I move these to the General Gallery.
    (Guidelines concerning posting photos to Photo Critique are here ).

    First one, looks like a banjo players dream!

    Both are great, and if you saw them without reading, you wouldn;t think they were from the UK

    very nice, you picked the perfect combination for the light and sky !!!!!

    Looks like I need to get myself a Grad ND !!!!

    Very Nice captures....Knowing when to use a tool and when not to overdo it is a hard thing to learn, looks like you have it down .....
