We're starting a new section in this issue due to feedback from our subscribers and readers. We'll be regularly featuring critiques of our readers pictures and the 'critiquers' (is that a word?) will either be Joe or myself or one of our featured photographers. For this first critique, Hamish Roots has volunteered to be our willing victim and we'll be talking about two of his pictures taken on an epic trip to the Lake District that I also attended at the start of this year.

Our brief was that we would discuss composition and technique and that we would also address potential changes and post processing. Our first video will be freely available in order to give non-subscribers a chance to take a look at the format but from now on these will be premium features only available to paying subscribers. First of all we'll take a look at the pictures that have been put forward by Hamish. I must point out that this type of critique is always subjective and there is no single 'right' way to present a file and hence we must remember that this is 'critique' not 'criticism'.
