    All these pictures were taken near Uffington, Oxfordshire, UK at various times of the year and day. Let me know what you think.

    OK, I think they're empty and too saturated.
    Sorry.

    I don't agree with the 'empty' comment at all (thought the 4th pic seems a bit redundant when compared to the rest). Saturation in some could probably be reduced, but doesn't look all that excessive to me (then again my monitor isn't the same as yours).

    Nice work!

    I love these pictures. How do you get that coloring on the photos like that? what i mean is, how is every picture so virbantly dramatic. I've wanted to take photos like that for a while but I don;t see how it is done.

    I think that 2, 4 and 5 should be made into a triptychon, then no one would call 4 redundant any more but they would be recognised as what they are: studies of the same place in different light situations. (I am very partial to that kind of studies, mind!)

    And all of these make obvious to me once again why, if I had the choice, I would always vote for England as a country to go to for holidays ... or Ireland, but England, too!

    I understand these are scanned prints (or scanned negatives)?
    What film do you use?

    These are prints scanned with a very cheap flatbed scanner. These shots were taken with Fuji Reala print film.

    I often (but not always) use 3 types of filters when taking landscape pictures. A mild warm up filter (81B) to enhance the warm colours of sunset and sunrise, a polariser to saturate colours and Neutral Density graduated filters (ND grad) to retain some details in the sky when it is too bright compared to the rest of the scene. If you use a digital camera you can achieve the same effects with Photoshop apart maybe for the polariser. However, I think the most impotant is to wait for the right light...

    You should also consider going to Scotland. I have been to both Ireland and Scotland and there are great photo opportunities (when th weather is not too ba!!). I will post some pictures from Ireland and Scotland in the future.
