It's 13 days as I write since signing up with Blip, after a friend of mine told me about it.

I have posted 9 shots. I can't or won't post every day, but normally my camera comes out far less frequently than this, and at this level of use I'm being forced to think about my photography in ways that challenge my usual approach. I like that, and I guess I'll reach a level that strikes a balance between being challenged, and becoming a slave to it (no offence to anyone who does post every day - I admire your commitment).

As regards photography - I'm passionate about it. I'd love to be a full time pro, but I'm happy with making landscape images, some of which serve to illustrate articles in the outdoors press.

I always make RAW files, and always process them in Lightroom 2 (possibly to be upgraded to 4 I suppose)

Please feel free to criticise any shots posted. It's very interesting knowing what others think of my compositions, some of which are highly experimental here. In many ways criticisms are more valuable than praise (not that I dislike complements of course) so don't hold back - let me have it!
