    Hello everyone,

    I had a really special afternoon walking with my son through the Peak District this today. Here are a few images from our walk.

    All taken with the E-P2 + 20mm f1.7... carried in my jacket pocket on a wrist strap.

    C&C Welcome and appreciated :polling:

    Thanks Don, it was off... I've removed the black frame edge, hopefully that won't ruin the eye travel.

    Cheers

    Brian, you already know how in love I am with your last photograph and I agree with cosinaphile as to the some the best use of lens flare I've ever seen.

    The first one threw me off with the seeming divide between the light and dark even though that view of the clear water or black ice is amazing. For me the combination of the white frozen ice and the dark "water" just was too confusing...I kept having to refocus between the two.

    The next two are perfectly fine but not "remarkable" - in my not so humble opinion. As stunning as they day may have been, photographically these do not seem up to snuff with your other photos. I'm being very straightforward here, having seen many of your photographs both here and on your website. I would normally pull my punches, but I feel OK with being completely upfront with you. That said, your last shot is a winner!!!!:biggrin:

    Thanks BB - this is where I think that our friendships around this forum will be of huge value, where we know each other well enough to enjoy honest feedback.

    I really appreciate you all taking the time to comment - and I'm definitely taking on board the advice.

    Cheers

    Brian

    I wish my kids would let me photograph them! That last shot is stunning not only on its technical merit and beauty but what it conveys about hope and potential (the rays of sunlight) with an underlying tentativeness (downward/inward gaze) in young adults of this age (early teen?).

    I think "Still" just won the black and white contest. Awesome image.

    Well, I like those images. They are very atmospheric and I like the warm colors. BUT - I like b&w ones more especially the last one. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers

    Morning Brian

    as usual lovely images - personally I do not like the solid black borders to the frame - I feel that they are too dominant and detract, (pull you away), from the image

    just IMHO

    Thanks Bill - to be clear, do you mean the 3d raised frame around the black border, or the whole black border thing?

    Really appreciate your feedback.

    Cheers

    The whole black border thing - it is just too dominant and in my view, takes you away from the image

    OK Bill,

    you're taking me back to my earlier question To frame, or not to frame... I haven't made my mind up yet, still experimenting - so your comments on this are appreciated.

    Cheers

    As I mentioned earlier I tend to like frames, I do think yours have been a little to big with to much border, that is just my personal preference of course
