Taken few days ago, istDL2 with Sigma 10-20mm. Some Ps done, mainly to underexposed parts of the photos
Any comments or constructive criticism are highly appreciated.

I like #2..especially that you got the rainbow...interesting that it appears against a blue sky! I'd only suggest cloning out the stick in the foreground.

Both are nice, I really like the rainbow. The post sticking up is not horribly distracting, but enough that I think it would look better without it.

Who can't like a rainbow shot, I agree with Harriet it would have been best to remove the stick before or after the shot.

I don't really like cloning out but I tried anyway, here's the result. You were right, this stick was a bit distracting. It looks better without it.

By the way: it was very strange morning, I've seen at least 5 different rainbows, got wet 3 times. Rain was coming and going every half hour. But overall it was excellent day.

Very nice Greg,
I'm curious too where this was shot. Wondering where they still use a solid white line along with a broken one, instead yellow to mark the road.

It's in Peak District in North West England. It's called Ladybower Reservoir. Located along Snake Pass road between Glossop and Sheffield. Great road for driving, twisty and with great views. Unfortunatelly not many places to stop and take pictures though.

It was possible to walk along this side of the reservoir only because of very low water level. Usually the water is as hight as the trees.

I've got more photos from this area, but from different days. I'll add some later.

Goldwinger: in England and most of the Europe I think.

OK Greg,
Thanks, it didn't click, we travel that road occasionally to visit my wifes relatives in Sheffiled, though not recently. I knew I'd seen it, just couldn't place it. LOL Will look forward to further pics. ... Jack

Greg-

The second version of the rainbow photo is a real improvement. Nice photos.

Have a great day.
