Pretty as a picture Harry.

Comment by: dirty harry on 22nd November 2011 at 11:20

its ok but the pictures look over exposed . it must be my eyes. and why walk through the woods with a camera and umbrella?

Comment by: Catherine on 22nd November 2011 at 12:00

Lovely photos. Makes me homesick.

OMG! It´s so beautiful. Haven´t been to the Plantations in over 40 years! I don´t live in the UK and we have sun everyday - I feel so home-sick. Thank you, Thank you

Always one killjoy! Pictures may be over exposed but they are still beautiful - and why not walk through the woods with an umbrella and a camera? There are no rules about what conditions pnhotos can be taken under. My motto is see it - shoot it!!!

Fantastic pictures

Overexposed is in the eye of the beholder. Diffused light like this tends to saturate colours and however there don't appear to be any clipped blacks to me; meaning not over exposed.

Nice work Harry; I enjoy your pictures

Janice...I agree with all you said..lovely pictures Harry.....brightens up an otherwise dull day.

Comment by: Harry C. on 23rd November 2011 at 09:00

Thanks for the interest and comments everyone. Sorry I'm late I've been busy.

dirty harry, I carry a camera, 'two'
to take photographs, and I am not the one with the umbrella, but I do thank you for your interest.

Comment by: Joe G on 23rd November 2011 at 09:29

Super photos Harry ,Ignore negative comments,they have not got a clue. They should get out more.

Comment by: Harry C. on 23rd November 2011 at 16:46

Thanks Joe G. I don't mind negative comments if they're constructive, I
like to try and make it interesting for people who like to see what Wigan and surrounding districts are like, and the collage of four photos of people walking in the woods gets the idea across, and saves three days for someone to submit their photos. Cheers H.

Dirty Harry or should it be David Bailey? Why wouldn't any keen photographer walk through the woods with their camera? Surely a place as beautiful as this deserves to be captured at every opportunity. Correct exposure may be defined as an exposure that achieves the effect the photographer intended, as you were not the photographer in this case how could you know what that was? The comments on this site from people who don't live in Wigan anymore prove that photo's like this are really appreciated. Lovely photographs, keep up the good work.

Great work harry. I look forward to more. John Higham hope to see more of your's posted soon. Great way to reconnect with people and places, since I don't get back to Wigan much these days.

Keep up the good work.

Thanks Dave, if you're the one I'm thinking of you're a little younger than me. I'll try to keep you in touch with what goes on around Wigan. Cheers H.
