    This was my first time out with my new camera in the Peak District.... I'd taken a few with it whilst on holiday but this was my first chance with tripod on my home turf.

    Very nice Des, the 2nd one is my favourite. I really should take a few more trips out there, with it being my local area as well

    Beautiful shots Des. I like the depth in the 2nd shot- would like to see a high res version of it.

    Here's the set on flickr. I'm currently considering an HDR package, any suggestions? I've done a few of this series as HDR but they are watermarked "photomatix" but I'll post one later for some critique.....

    I'm still (re)learning my skills as a photographer so am not very confident that I'm getting it right after a few years break from the hobby (kids etc meant snapshots only for a few years), but am starting to take it more seriously again and enjoying some of the stuff I'm producing.
     
  11. They look great to me. I would have shot some of those with my graduated neutral density filters to improve on the sky and exposure.
    Nicely done...and you will continue to enjoy the D700.

    A set of Kood/cokin filters are next on my list of purchases. I agree the sky needed at least 2 stops less and the foreground 1 the other way, best I could do without filters though.

    Matt - maybe organise a nikoncafe evening out there?
     
  14. hey, dez
    awesome shots
    great thread

    time to change your SIGNATURE....... :smile:
     
  15. Really nice stuff there Des, and so nice to se an Englishman on the forum....I am sure there are others there too.

    Re HDR, if you have a Mac there is a nice plugin for Aperture. I am a Mac person, but find Photomatix to be pretty hard to beat.

    Have posted one of these HDR shots here previously, (the bridge) but you may have missed it.

    Five exposures from D200, remote shutter firing, processed in Photomatix then Apple Aperture.
