Just realised, I never followed up on my photos to follow comment.

Beautiful shots Richard!
The first and third have an impressive light and detail in the foreground. Did you use any filters? Reason I am asking is that I will on the new year start off with the Lee system.
Sorry, took me a while to get back. Yes I did use filters, a combination of a Lee CPL and soft grads on the first two (the mountains prevented me using the Singh-Ray Revers Grad), it was a challenge with the mountains though and a blend would proably have been easier, but the challenge was too much of a temptation. The other was taken a few years ago, using the Cokin P system; that was a combination of the Singh-Ray LB Warming Polarizer and the 3 stop Singh-Ray Reverse Grad. I also used a touch of HDR on the third, just to recover the detail in the reflection.
