Very nice Andy. I like all three, but I like the second one the best. Like Gordo said, nice processing.Slow month this month - not sure why, probably a lot going on with the takeover at work - things are a bit more settled at last now.

Had a morning off work to drop my mother off at the railway station and had some time afterwards. So I swung past one of our favourite dog walks (sans dog) and spent some time trying to get to know my new lenses. This is with the Nikon 20/3.5UD - it is very wide but I think it is going to work out well for me (plus it is built like a tank).
Vale of Belvoir by Andy McDonald, on Flickr
This was taken near Grantham Canal. It was quite a bright day but lots of cloud - somehow this scene almost appeared like an inversion (dark sky and light field) and I thought it would look good in black and white. Taken with Nikon 50/1.4AIS.

Another with the 50/1.4AIS. This is semi-posed - I saw the patch of light (and if you look closely you can see the rest of the family and the dog in there) and thought that this might make an interesting, thoughtful kind of picture. I processed this as Tri-X in Silver Efex to give a grittier feel.
