    Well I finally got round to processing some of the other landscape attempts I took a while back. Again I'm in a new area, without a tripod (so working single shot) and didn't have time to wait for better lighting (very much "snapshot landscape work!)

    So without further ado:
    All taken with Canon 400D + 70-200mm f2.8 IS L

    The rocks in this didn't come out as sharp as I would have liked and I suspect my rough focusing method failed me here; since it appears I got the foreground, but not the background. Again an example that I need to learn hyperfocal focusing stuff.

    shutter getting a bit slow here and it shows with some blur in the trees - sadly at ISO 400 I wasn't prepared to go higher with ISO in already dimming conditions.

    I do wonder, now I see it on the net (I do wish there was a "preview in flickr" button in elements ;)) if I should have done a bit more with the contrast in this shot just to give it a little bit more punch.

    So there we are - 4 more landscape attempts - and I would greatly apprecaite any input people have in these - either on the compositional or the technical or the editing side.

    Seeing this photo has me wondering.

    Was there a location behind you and to the right that is of a higher location?
    The twists and turns of the road would have made it a very interesting photo.
