    mrsawyer. Thanks. A little bit of beginners luck and this fantastic little compact camera. Easily slips in the pocket and goes everywhere with me from now on! I think the TZ60 maybe even a better proposition.

    I thought I had commented on this but I guess not...anyway, beautiful shot where the shadows made all the difference. This was my top pick.

    Thanks everyone for your comments. I almost took the shot from the other end of the road to minimise the effect of the shadows which I thought were too much of a distraction but from your comments I was wrong. This indeed is a lovely spot and even more so in summer when the leaves on the trees provide a suitable canopy from the sun.

    The shadows make this one for me. They lay on the road and make it the subject of the shot. Well done.

    This is a beautiful scene very nicely captured. I wish I was there riding a bike down this road!

    Beautifully exposed to bring out the the shadows on the road and to enhance the contrast between the bare trees and the lush grass.

    Just out of my top 10 but well done for the contrast and colour.

    Very nice! The trees and especially the foreground shadows add interest without detracting from the road.

    Very pretty composition. I like the shadows and the dark trunks against the bright green of the grass.

    like the picture with shadows etc
the top of the picture needs cropping to the level of the green grass n the background as this will have included the tree tunnel at the end
