    No it doesn't Darren, it's rubbish, I wish I was not there and no one supports Julian with these shots. Not worth it :rolleyes::rolleyes::p

    Darren, I do not go to the far south west past Penzance often. Yet when I do I am always finding something different and promise myself to go back there sooner than I ever do.
    This part of Cornwall is very different from Mid and east. This is the old mystic part, very baron and rugged. With something special about it.

    A couple of beauties there, Julian. I find the second one an especially nice image. It really connotes that mystic and baron ruggedness you mentioned. And the light is lovely on both images.

    Thanks Brian. My preference is the second also. Wish i had not chopped the house off in the first. To much sun could not see the live view that clearly . the light is for be far better in the second.

    Wonderful stuff again Julian. And that con-trail actually adds to the composition doesn't it? :)

    Thanks Pete, yes I like contrails, maybe not so much the large fluffy ones that are closer and go diagonally across an image, but certainly this, does for me helps to break a sky up a bit.

    you get a great feel for the land, looking at #2 - like that it's shot into the light as well

    Thanks Chris, yes the sun was just to the right. The Foveon sensor does not cope with sun hitting the lens. In fact it's reproduction is so similar to film and reminds me in those
    situations of using the Zorki when get blown out scattered colours. Crazy that some makers do not supply hoods with cameras, I've not got one as yet but had an old rubber generic
    version, far to short but helped slightly.

    Here's an, into the sun pic, Some qualities I like but not for DPR consumption, you'd get hung drawn and chopped into little bits.

    My Olympus and canon I could have shot this easily without the flare like this. I do not think it is lens depended either.
    Who needs art filters .

    All really superb Julian. I think the haze in the second adds to a sense of remoteness.

    Blimey, that really is film-like isn't.

    Might just have a shufty at Amazon...
