Awesome shots man! I especially like the one of the old tank. Where did you take that one?

This is a temple to Athena on top of an acropilis that overlooks the village of Lindos, Greece. It shares the space with a crusader castle, a 13th century christian church, Roman and Ottoman fortifications... and the views are exceptional.
Below the Acropolis of Lindos is a small bay where it is reported the Apostle St Paul landed in a storm. He stayed and brought christianty to the isalnd circa 40 AD. The ancient Greek Orthodox church on the bay's shores is named after St Paul.

Love the eagle shot - couldn't get better (and giving a very strong Sam Eagle look)
edit: Trinity how come all those pics are wiki pics?

Trin those are some nice shots, got a story to put on them?
Warning, these are pretty large photos.
These where all taken today while I was wandering around looking for some nice B/W shots to take, a subject I have never tried before.
These are from Jerusalem, on a weekend off I had with the GF a few weeks ago.
Descriptions added as requested.

The lighting on that could not have been better, making the pulpit rock pop out. And the water, its like silk!
I'll throw in another image from scotland, still working through trip photos

WOW guys fancy pictures!
Ira I love todays picture, any change for a desktop size?
Man I miss the cotswolds and the highlands, I really like the lone tree in the highlands photo in your flikr stream.
Here are two i took while in Italy last summer.
I forget the name of the town this was taken in, but it was somewhere in Tuscany (I want to say it was San Gimignano) I still have no idea how i got the slightly curved look in this shot
A Night shot of the Vatican.
Had a chance to pull out the trusty Konica 1.7 (love how it renders light) and Panasonic G3 for the sister-in-law's wedding this weekend in western NC. Learning the joys of shooting RAW.
Sorry for the double post but just started going through the rest of my UK pics. This is Llanthony Priory in Wales right on the border with England. It was abboned when the Catholic priory/abbeys were dissolved. Then some bohemian artist dude built a house and lived there for a while. It's an inn now with a pub in the crypt.
great composition, did you use some kind of filter to slow the shutter speed?
Yes, I used a 4-stop neutral density filter. It's the only way to get a long enough shutter speed to allow the water to smooth out. Some people like the effect but others hate it.
I for one like it, especially ocean waves, to each their own.
I absolutely adore your compositions, Trinity! Where did you learn that!? It's stunning.
Yes, the two concepts mentioned by Ira are always present in my thoughts during editing. Two other things I use: do not centre the main subject and leave some space for it to move in to or out of frame. This is perhaps best exampled in the 4 recent waterfall shots. The two most compelling shots have the waterfall well away from the centre and use the stream as a leading line to the falls while the overall composition is also respecting the rule of thirds. When I fist started I found I had to crop quite often to achieve these compositional concepts but now it is more instinctual. However, sometimes the rules can be broken and you can still achieve something special. Although often when closely examined a more complex concept of the Golden Ratio may have come into play.
I've never had formal training in photography. Trail and error, reading bits in books and on-line mostly.
So blue - looks like that was 2 years spent waiting well indeed for the right light!
And now for something totally not landscape
75% chance I'll be back there sometime this year. I think I'd be happy just vacationing in the Cotswolds the rest of my life. Forget the rest of the world. If I do get back I'll be shooting raw this time instead of silly jpg.
Lovely pictures everyone, I've been feeling the camera bug recently myself.
God dame me for not finding this thread. It's about to storm and the clouds look like they are going to drop out of the sky. Now it's dark and by morning it's going to rain.

so if I visit the cotswolds again this year I am finally going to make it to glastonbury. Trying to decide between southern ireland of cotswolds.
The village of Glastonbury is quite touristic with all kinds of quirky mystical shops that pander to all the hippy types that descend upon the area. The Tor is nice but always crowded.
I quite liked Ireland (there is no southern Ireland :-)).
