    Im new to photography, and am still learning about composition and framing, all taken on my GF3 with kit 14 - 42 and a few with Pentacon 50mm 1.8. I thought you may like to see this part of our beautiful country, the older I get the moreI appreciate our heritage and history and the beauty of my surroundings.

    inclding Carisbroke Castle, where King Charles 1st was held prisoner by our government and the Isle of Wight steam festival - Enjoy and please feel free to offer advice on improving my technique.

    Grew up in Southampton and had a number of trips over to the island, so some happy memories jogged by these.

    Always felt the Red Funnel ferry was like a time machine going back to the 1960's. Great images, thanks for posting.

    Nice one. I think I would process this one a little contrastier, it looks a bit dark and dull to me, the whitest white of the clouds isn't really white.

    Really like this one :thumbup:

    I've had a mini epiphany with this trip, and set. I always knew that kit doesn't make a photographer however reading this forum a lot I get lens envy.. However I really enjoyed using my kit lens on an entry level body and am pleased with the results. Some more practice can only improve me.

    I particularly liked the needles & lighthouse. Reminds me of the times I competed in the round the island race many moons ago ;-)
