    I really like the last one but the horizon looks a couple of degrees out.

    Take it you went somewhere really cold?

    Was that Antartica then, or near (looking at the penguins)?

    The horizon is a bit off in a couple of the pics, but maybe you were on a boat at the time.

    Nothing a bit of straightening in Photoshop wouldn't sort out.
    I'm forever taking pics, even on steady ground, with the horizon lopsided.
    I've got a stack of pics I need to straighten in Photoshop.

    The pics are great though. Looks like my kind of trip ;)

    the Antarctic Peninsular it was -Mid Feb meant Mid summer there so it was above freezing - just lots of Penguins ,trips in little rubber boats hence wobbly horizons but a great 17 days aboard the Marco Polo.
    Come July my daughter and I are off once more on the Marco Polo doing the Top end this time - Norway/Fa oes/Iceland
    The hot lager soaked sandy bits full of ruins in the middle of this planet don't interest us one iota.

    Here are some more

    Nice.

    How did you get the last one in the first post? Is it just a polariser?

    I've done Iceland. Went on the Fire & Ice & Whalewatching trip. Well impressive. I want to do the Norway cruise where you get to stay a night in an Ice Hotel.

    Enjoy. :D

    All shots were natural -just a UV filter on the Olympus E10
    However on reflection that frame I did mess with using 'Painterly' or similar in PSP9
    That being said it is truly amazing the colours that come from the ice - it is not all just white, The old ice [1000 of years old some times]is blue - the older it is the bluer it gets- sometihng to do with the compreession forces over the ages, I seem to recall

    Next trip ,have a Kokin set from my old film set up that fits the Olympus E300

    Whether or not the opportunity to fiddle around with them is another story- we shall have wait and see
