Hi Folks.
Just a few of mine from a few days away in Cumbria. Set up the GPX logger set the camera time and went to synchronise the files after and the time was wrong on the camera, forgot to select set after adjusting, Doh, then we moved to British Summertime and it all got worse from there, no problem I found the first photo where I started the log and worked out the time difference, and that didn't work either, pictures all over the county. Hence I don't know where exactly some were taken, I will be able to place them from a map just no time to do it yet.

From the Hartside Cafe towards Penrith.

Interesting, so these were shot from a moving car?  I've done that quite a bit.  Beautiful countryside...reminds me of watching Top Gear!

Hi Carl.
I did stop to take the pictures, I guess the pictures must be lacking sharpness for you to think that the car was moving!  :-[ The one taken on my Freelander, I was standing on top of it to get over the greenery to get some of the lake in the view! It was windy and the car was moving so I'm not surprised that there is evidence of movement in the picture! Some of the pictures were opportunist, I had to just pull up walk a few paces to avoid obstacles like trees in the foreground, others I was able to stop in a layby and walk for the best composition IMO without the need for wellingtons and waterproofs.
I must say that I'm not upset by what you said, I take it that I need to work on technique or aarrrgh learn post processing, this thing is haunting me more and more! And yes I know I cannot fix out of focus or movement afflicted photos with pp but the rest might have made an impact!

Cheers Graham.

Hi Dpc.
Some evocative pictures you have posted, I like the idea of empty chairs at a view point!

Cheers Graham.

No, I didn't mean it as criticism, and they didn't look soft.  I didn't even look at the full size versions.  I thought they looked quite good, but just assumed you shot from the car while someone else was driving.  I've shot thousands of pics like that.  Most of mine are far from fantastic...but if you think about it, it's the best way to shoot a lot of different compositions from along a route, in a very short amount of time.  That's the way I usually wind up having to do it!
