guys, a quick note on how flickr works: posting your photo to a group is considered an invitation for people to view and comment on your photo. traditional topics for such comments include what about a photo the commenter likes, and any suggestions for ways it might be done differently. different crops, compositions, angles, lighting, processing. flickr users are enthusiastic about photography and love to share ideas about each other's photography in this way. generally, if somebody leaves simple friendly helpful suggestions alongside saying nice things about the stuff you made, that is considered in advanced civilisations to be a good thing. it is not to be mistaken for an insult. replying to such a comment with a series of increasingly frantic private messages rambling about your long trip down to the shops, and blocking the commenter from making their reply similarly in private, looks just the slightest bit crazy.

99.9% of flickr users get this. and get this without effort. some of the more venerable lads and lasses of the english counties groups may still need to put some work in on this one.

I am currently working on a simpler way of adding comments to this page (and a far less time consuming one for those without a Yahoo login), but for now, use flickr.

This is a proper landscape shot, the light and textures are outstanding. I plan to photograph this part of the world one day. Great shot.

Agree with Kingger - proper landscape shot. Great light and textures. Foreground of the white, squarecut fields works well for me as well.

Beautiful scene, dramatic lighting and nice tones. Castlerigg shows up well in the snow.

That really is fantastic. The quality of light and colour sets this apart from most landscapes I've seen. And an interesting description! -- Seen on your photo stream. (?)
