    Such a nice day so decided to take the day off. Strapped the little one on my back in her back pack and headed into the lakes.

    All images are straight out of the camera. 400D and Sigma 17-70. Wanted to test my hoya circular polarizing filter which was used for the 1st 5 images only. 1st time I've used one so was just experimenting

    Living near the lakes just makes me want to buy a 10-20 lens!

    Fantastic set... Love them:smashin:

    What you say about an UWA is true, i have some ( rather much less impressive London Surburban ones) from today all taken with the 12-24 Tokina)
    I suppose I should get them off the card:devil:!

    Nice work on first outing. Thing to remember about Polarising filter is that it does a couple of things, one of which you may want for landscape and one you may not....

    First it can help make skies look more saturated
    Second it can remove reflections from bright surfaces....which for a landscape you may actually want.....

    Looks like a great location.

    My only comments would be to try and avoid placing the horizon line in the centre of the frame, and try and get a little closer to the ground for a little more foreground detail and a more interesting composition.

    these are really great.

    After the mad day i have had in the office it would be great to take a similar stroll, but they just don't have the same views in Langley :(

    Great shots and lovely scenery. :thumbsup:

    I recently bought a polarizing filter but haven't yet had a chance to try it out. Good tips by Liquid and Gordon.
