Nice pictures Neil.

I can understand why you use them, but I find the large
watermarks very distracting.

Really nice pictures, I don't understand the HUGE watermark though.

Overall: Great shots!
I agree with most of these posts. the first thing I see on all the picures is the watermark. I keep trying to see the images behind, which technically appear good, but my eye cannot let me study the pictures. I found that scrolling to hide the watermark helps, so here goes:
1: I see it as somewhat pale green, though nice water effects.
2: OK, but
3: Better colors than 2.
The wider jetty on 3 is perhaps too much for me, and a balance between pictures 2 and 3 would work best. So far: pic 3 is winning.

4 and 6 are nice woodland scences, but I prefer the lake (5) between them.
#7 (sheep) doesn't grab me so much as the sunset below. (8)
Picture 9, Nice.
Picture 10, Nice.
My winner for you today: Drawn most to picture 5. (lake). But: a cross beween pics 2 and 3 may have won the day.

thanks guys.

The reason for the water mark is that i have lost a few on flickr. The last one before the water marks ended up on a French radio website advertising for a comp. Where the winner wins €5000.

They weren't even going to offer me a penny for using my image after a letter from my solicitor got the image removed and compensation. So hence the water mark ( how many have you lost and don't even know it!)

An absolutely stunning series that gets stronger as it goes on - v hard to pick a fave, but I love No.1. Ahhhhhhh you gotta watch those Frenchie Bus-tards. Good for you for getting what you deserve.
