Last one is my favourite :thumbup: Is Canon a 1.6x for focal length on your sensor compared to full frame ? Makes that a 16mm to 38mm lens essentially. Are the second two images cropped ? I love taking pics of the snow. Missed a wonderful image outside the other day just after the first snow we had. It just at sunset and I saw someone taking a pic across the fields, framed with hills to the right and left, with the sun setting in the valley in between. I was as jealous as hell that she had thought of it !!!! Bet the lucky mare got a great shot. There is a guy on Youtube called Dom Bower (Dominic Bower, a photographer from Scotland). He has taken some great snowscene images.

Yes, 1.6 crop on Canon APS-C sensor. I will upgrade to full frame one day. The better dynamic range and lower noise is irresistible and I don't do much long stuff so wouldn't miss the increased focal length that crops provide.

All these images are cropped by a small amount for composition, then resized for web.

Looking at Dom Bower now, cheers! :)

Cool, some of his vids are a bit OTT but I think he knows his stuff :) I have a Nikon D700 set up that I am thinking of selling if you are interested ;) Can you be tempted to the dark side ?

I live half way up a hill in N Wales and had squat so far. I like the third pic, George.
