Camera: Canon EOS-350D Rebel XT
Lens: Canon EF 28-135mm F/3.5-5.6 IS USM
Location: Nidderdale
Date: Aug 11, 2007
Aperture: f20
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/13th
Galleries: Landscape, Rural
Date Uploaded: Aug 12, 2007

Single RAW file run through Photomatrix and given subtle (I hope) tone-mapping. Photoshop Elements 4 - slight levels and contrast adjustment, some dodging to shadows on right hand hill. Cropped out slither of sky to top left. Sharpened using High Pass filter, resized and saved for web.

This is a fabulous view, and I haven't really done it justice. I really am finding landscape photography very hard to get any where near right, but I shall carry on and persevere. And I am glad I had an excuse to stop to take a photo - my legs were killing me!

This is a great shot of nothing. Once in a while you can get away with this. You did it here with the wonderful lines that seem to go all over the place but actually end up leading your eye out of the frame at the top left. This is enough to make this shot work.

Very nice shot.
Great example of a telephoto used for landscape.
The dodging of the foreground trees to the right is quite visible though.

I like the vantage-point (bird's eye view) & I'm a sucker for cloud shadows over farmland. I almost missed the animals (sheep?). I want to like this better than I do. It seems flat, at least on this monitor.

This needs more work on composition.
