Lost for words. Your images are breath takingly beautiful. I visited Scotland last year but sadly not talented enough to come back with anything like this :)

Absolutely professionell and brilliant. You show that photography and art come together.

I thought I had you 'snaplisted' - well, here - let's fix that right now.

Hi Karl, just want to say that I really admire your HDR landscape work.
 Paula Eytcheson said:August 30th, 2012 (5:39am) PDT
Thank you Karl for the warm welcome! Beautiful gallery btw :O)

Hey Karl - thx 4 stopping over! I'm just glad that I can use my contacts for seeing - otherwise I'd be in a pickle! Ha!

Tus paisajes son realmente impresionantes. Ha sido un placer visitar tu galería. Mi enhorabuena.

Thank you, Karl, for taking the time to stop by and visit. Your kind comment is much appreciated and you are correct about the technique. A slow shutter speed while simultaneously manipulating the lens from 'zoom out' to 'zoom in' which entails rotating the lens counterclockwise. I've seen this method in a few photo magazine articles. It is often used on stationary objects (flowers, trees, people, etc) Moving subjects can be a little more challenging and admittedly my success rate is quite low.

Yes got tired of the stupidity of the 500 site. Your work is just stunning!
 Lynne Jenkins said:May 20th, 2012 (6:10pm) PDT
Karl, what a delight it is to view your collection of stunning art! Excellent work!!
 Barbara Marcum said:May 1st, 2012 (7:53am) PDT
Karl, thank you so much for your comments. I greatly appreciate that you not only give feedback on the picture ( that were right on the mark) but also suggestions as to how I might have improved it.
 Tim Butler said:April 20th, 2012 (6:22am) PDT
Thanks for your visit and link. Just a week ago, the day we went on vacation for a week, I received a copy of Lightroom and haven't been home to install it. After I get a little bit of it under my belt you can be sure I will have some questions for you because I do want to play with HDR. Thanks again Karl for your interest.
 Tim Butler said:April 2nd, 2012 (8:40am) PDT
ALL of your photos are just stunning. I think you are being much too modest when you attribute so much to being "in one of the most photogenic countries in the world". It's the way you see it and capture it that's so magical. Well done on so many levels.
 Pamela Palmer said:March 28th, 2012 (4:14pm) PDT
Your gallery is wonderful!
 Larry Lancaster said:March 20th, 2012 (5:25pm) PDT
I just have to ask (I hope you'll forgive me). Is the profile pic a self-portrait? I know you knew somone would ask.

Thank you for your kind visit and your comments.

Hey Karl, Thank you greatly for the encourageing comment on "Chilled". You are right Re The sharonest. Mate you should have seen the printed product, don't I could ever better that one. Thanks agin my friend.
 Alex Greenshpun said:March 16th, 2012 (3:42pm) PDT
me* - (comments really should be editable)... Oh and if you would like that, perhaps I could crop the image to upload somewhere for you to see.
 Alex Greenshpun said:March 16th, 2012 (3:40pm) PDT
Hey Karl, thank you for the comment on "Duality. It's interesting that you think it might look better in square format. I personally prefer the current 4 by 6 as it feels more harmonious to mee. IMO it leaves more curves and soft background and that kinda gives the more femenine, soft-mood I was going for. :)
 Jeff Morley said:March 16th, 2012 (8:10am) PDT
I thank you....
 Buck Shreck said:March 13th, 2012 (9:35am) PDT
Karl ...... You asked me "what's f/2.8 ?" .... Answer: Aperture...... In general f2.8 is "better" or "Faster" than the f4 though it all depends on the lens. The f2.8 lenses tend to be heavier and bulkier than their f4 counterparts. I hope this
 Joanot said:March 13th, 2012 (8:29am) PDT
Thank you very much, for your good words
 Bob Duff said:March 12th, 2012 (1:24pm) PDT
That's what I admire about you top notch landscape shooters. You'll sacrifice everything to "get" the shot. LOL.
 Doug Benner said:March 12th, 2012 (8:06am) PDT
Karl, thank you for adding me to your SnapList. It is much appreciated and means a lot to me. I love your work.
 Simon Barker said:March 9th, 2012 (3:09pm) PST
Karl, thanks for the heads-up. I'll definatly check out your website again for the tutorial. I enjoy looking at your work, thanks for sharing. Simon.
 Barbara Jones said:March 9th, 2012 (10:44am) PST
E-mail ...your work address.
 mauro pasquero said:March 9th, 2012 (7:33am) PST
Many thanks, Karl. I do appreciated your visit and comment, you have an outstanding gallery.
 Bob Duff said:March 7th, 2012 (12:20pm) PST
Thanks for stopping by and commenting on the image "On the Beach". Appreciate it. Re "The Island(3)" and whether it should be a square crop. Don't know is is my feeling. The thumbnail is a square crop but I like the mist in the hills providing a very nice diagonal across the image into the the island. The light just hitting the island clearly establishes the focal point. Going to a square crop I think diminishes the energy within the image just a bit of mist and the reflections in the water.

Hey thanks for the comments Karl on the rapids shot - yeah - I know the burnouts came through - I worked and worked on that one but with the DX format, I figured it was the best I could come up with. Thanks for the constructive observations - appreciate it! And yes - Barbara is great isn't she?
 Ian McConnell said:March 2nd, 2012 (6:24am) PST
Hi Karl, as an ex Scotsman, I really appreciate your images. I also just a a quick look around your website. Killer shots dude.
 pandora said:March 2nd, 2012 (6:09am) PST
hi karl :o) thank you for commenting my foggy shot! I apppreciate it a lot! I agree with you. actually I cut that light area on the left side. maybe to get that framing impression. now I see it might have been too much. you're right. it now looks like a border. I'll try your second suggestion to cut the entire tree. althought I think it might arise the feeling that there is something left. anyway, let's see :o) greetings! steffi
 John Purchase said:March 2nd, 2012 (5:03am) PST
Hi Karl, thanks for the comment on Vintage Rose. Please offer as much advise as you can, i'm more than willing to learn from someone who is extremely talented, your work is in a different league to mine.
 Peter Lessey said:March 1st, 2012 (4:39pm) PST
Hey Karl, I have to say that I was quote surprise to see so many known faces here. I have been toying with the move to this site for some time now but finally made it Yesterday. Thanks for your comments on my works my friend.
 Zvia Shever said:March 1st, 2012 (4:12pm) PST
Your portfolio is stunning Karl! Beautiful, beautiful images, every one.
 Simon Barker said:March 1st, 2012 (12:29pm) PST
Karl, thanks for taking the time to look at my portfolio. Much appreciated. Your work here is fantastic; the use of reflection and silouette really adds something. Nice stuff on your website, as well. Cheers.
 Barbara Jones said:March 1st, 2012 (9:45am) PST
check your work e-mail..

Okay - looks like most of us are getting over here - Barbara - Gene - and you're new to me - but just had to stop and say great set you have here - great eye for comps/color/moods/eye travel/forgrounds! Great work Karl!
 Doug Benner said:February 29th, 2012 (4:21pm) PST
Karl - In answer to your question about the lens. This one was done with a Sigma 105mm macro. I've since switched to a Tamron 90mm macro, which I like even better. I often stack multiple images and process them with Helicon Focus to get more DOF.
 Marc Bulte said:February 29th, 2012 (12:55pm) PST
You have a stunning collection here! Great job! Cheers, Marc

What a lovely comment, Karl. I want to create something similar to another Dimension but the spirit has not hit me--yet LOL Am still weighing and measuring sites. But at the moment, not posting here. Thanks Karl. Carol
 Jim Nall said:February 28th, 2012 (2:57pm) PST
Karl, when you say "remember the difference between encouragement and discouragement", you really hit the nail on the head! You make some splendid points! Thanks for leaving those comments sir.
 Jim Nall said:February 28th, 2012 (8:02am) PST
Karl, give my most recent post to the 'opinions' section a look-see. I appreciate your thoughts very're on my snaplist now. Jim

Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my images. Very kind. I'm a muddling landscape shooter and definitely not in your league. Studying your images, I can learn alot.

Thank you for the comments on my photo. I appreciate it, as I learn this art form to be better at it.

I am a self-taught photographer based near Glasgow who, although having been doing photography of one form or another for the past 40 years, has only converted to digital photography in the last few years.

My photographic philosophy is quite simple, and is based upon a quotation from Ansel Adams: “There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs”.

Although my portfolio is fairly wide-ranging, my passion is HDRI landscape photography and, in that respect, I consider myself fortunate to live in one of the most photogenic countries in the world.
