    Thanks

    I'd only got my TS-E primes with me on this walk, so I'd got a limited scope for framing. The house was an important compositional element, but I would have liked to keep more sky in the frame. I'd been in this area for most of the afternoon and I climbed higher and also descended lower with my compact to find a composition that I liked. I ended up going back to my original visualisation for a photo because I would need to get my composition fine-tuned before the light arrived.

    My 24mm was too wide as the foreground wasn't all that interesting (and would have added unnecessary complication to the frame - the house would've been lost), so I my choice was either the 45mm or 90mm. It was quickly apparent that if I wanted to include the house, I'd need to use the 45mm lens.

    I played around with the movements, but hadn't got the lens converted to offer both tilt/swing and shift on the same plane. I did move the focal plane around a bit and attempted to squash the perspective in the top half of the frame, but I ended up settling on this. I guess it was a compromise, but then all photographs are a compromise in one way or another.

    Some great landscapes in your Flickr Tim.

    Some great colour in that second one Syd - nuisance that wee branch.
    Thanks Yeah - I figured that even with PP I couldn't loose it ! Esp with my current skill set.

    OK heres something special. Have to admit IT'S NOT MINE, but belongs to two astro imaging friends of mine from UK Astro Imaging Forum, Alex and Chris.

    It's a link to a film on YouTube of their mini weather ballon flight, carrying a GPS locator and a video camera which filmed the thin blue line of the atmosphere before dropping back safely to earth.
