love #1, 2 & 3 dont do much for me personally, like #4 - do you have a wider angle of this? would love to know what exactly it is. #5 - nice image but theres nothing to draw me into it, did you use the rule of 3rds etc? maybe focus more on the white building and use that to set your composition up, blur up the foreground a little maybe, the way everything appears pin sharp shouts "auto mode" to me.

Thanks for your comments - very helpful!

4 is my favourite, it's the spindle of a water wheel. There was some great machinery inside but not enough light for photos. I have another shot of the wheel which is a little wider, but not a very good picture. The wheel is designed to lift water out of the river into a header tank which then feeds a small water feature in a nearby ornamental lake. It's only a tiny water feature so the work that went into putting this mill together is ridiculous in contrast. Image of the whole mill from wikipedia here: http://en.wikipedia....-Waterwheel.jpg

The last one makes me think of a cheap chocolate box cover, it's not to my taste either, but it's quite a fair representation of what Painshill Park is about - twee landscaping with little building oddities designed to suprise visitors as they come round corners (sort of why I left the tower a bit hidden). It's not a great picture though, I agree - it just sums up the feel of the place for me.

Your comment about auto-mode is interesting as I only shoot full manual with an old f1.7 manual lens, nothing against automatic, but when I actually get a good shot it's satisfying to know I got there myself without any hand-holding. Usually the issue I have is getting anything in focus at all, so perhaps now I'm over compensating :)

I feel a bit out of my zone with landscapes to be honest, as sooon as my macro setup is back together again, it's back to the world of small where everything seems so much easier!
