Default Canal Locks

Picture taken yesterday, 1st May, Bosley Locks in Cheshire, England. I would welcome any opinions!

It's nice enough picture. I'd like to see the clouds brought out a bit more. Have you got a polarising filter?

I live in Chester, where are Bosley locks exactly?

BTW, please resize the pictures to 800x600 so we can see em better with more compression as it takes ages to download.

I make copies which are highly compressed and resized for uploading to the net.

Bosley Locks is located on the Macclesfield Canal, off the Buxton to Congleton Road, A54, just West of the point where this road crosses the A523 Macclesfield to Leek Road. You can see a map here:

It's a nice place to visit, I think there are 12 locks in total. You can see some more images taken there on the same day on my website You may recognise some of the names of the other locations as well.

I would love to try using a polarising filter but there is no facility for using filters on my camera, Minolta F200, and I am not aware of any adaptors available - this may sound a really stupid question but would a polarising filter work if you just held/taped it in front of the lense?

Are you using Photoshop? If so, there are some actions for PS that simulate a polarizing filter and look very good. If you have photshop, let me know and I'll try to locate the actions.

Thanks for the reply but no, unfortunately I haven't got Photoshop, I use Paint Shop Pro for all my photo editing.

Most of your images are very good.

Either your images need some serious compression (resizing to 800x600) or that is a frustratingly slow site. Even the thumbs take ages to down load.
