    1600 Miles driven and about 20 really good photos out of about 400. I struggled with dust in my camera all week as well :( I suppose it's all a learning curve!

    Opinions welcome :)

    good work...... these are good..... there are however a few centered horizons which im not keen on..... take the number 2 for example..... if you take about 2 inches off the top, just above the clouds (try scrolling the window down to see this)... the balance is much improved and it makes it a good 'wide' landscape shot (which you can get printed in this format too ;) )..... its just better on the eye i think.

    Similar cropping could be appied to other shots here..... but you do have a good eye for landscapes... :thumbup:

    Hmm yeah good point with the cropping there :)

    I've yet to play about with them all much really

    It does look much better as a wide - angle!

    You just visited the area, Chris? When? Where have you been?

    Ah, Ireland... now that I am seeing these, I am wanting to go back again!
    My latest Ireland-pics are still on film, so scanning the prints is all I can do, the results lacking in clarity ... but I might post some (again ... I guess I have posted some before... )

    We got such amazing weather... 27 degrees or hotter for most of the week. Really made most of the shots!

    What a beautiful series! It really shows how different the scenery is in the area. The composition of #9 really grabs me for some reason.

    Thanks for the kind words :)

    I really love how #9 turned out myself.

    My very best photo (IMO) from the trip however was saved for this months Landscapes photo competition, so look out for it there :)
