Hi !
Very good work ! It's very beautiful !
Guest 29-Aug-2006 18:13
Beautiful pictures of Scotland. Nice coulors!
Guest 29-Aug-2006 05:18
After seeing your pics, I realized I'm just a rank amateur. Amazing lighting in all your pics. And the wonderful scenery in Europe helps too. Awesome.
Carl 24-Aug-2006 22:53
I have visualized the type and quality of photographs I'd like to take, and then I came across your photos and realized someone has already achieved that level of proficiency! Rather than be intimidated by your beautiful work that I haven't come close to yet, I've decided to let it inspire me. I wish you were here in the states to tutor me! You, Neil, are the best landscape photographer I have ever seen. Your use of foreground objects, large depth of field and masterful capture of light is outstanding.

Guest 23-Aug-2006 10:30
Hi Neil,

Your photo's are so beautiful.
I keep watching them over and over again.
Thanks for sharing.

Michael 20-Aug-2006 14:30
Hi Neil - Excellent work. However, as a 5D owner myself I really would like to know a bit more about your "secrets". For example, it would be great if some of the more unusual shots had some information on what type of ND or polarizer you used, and maybe some of your thoughts and considerations as you were making the shot. For example, I noticed you like to use very long shutter times and tiny apertures, and it would be great to hear a bit about why that is. Clearly you have a huge talent for photography, and I personally want to learn as much from you as I can.
Stephen C. Gushue16-Aug-2006 00:28
Hello Neil, The work in your My Favourite Shots gallery is an absolute joy to my eyes. The work respects light, content, subject and the art of photography as well as it can be practiced. My hat is off to you, Sir.

Thank you!

Guest 30-Jun-2006 21:46
WOW! I wanted to leave a comment on every picture I looked at on your site but I thought just one right here would be faster.
Outstand work! These are some of the best landscape pics I've seen. You have a great eye and your post processing is right on.
Guest 22-Jun-2006 17:14
Very, Very impressive
Guest 19-Jun-2006 18:24

I think your pictures are worth more than a thousand words. Keep it up!
Guest 06-Jun-2006 02:51
Impressive. Each gallery of yours that I view is equally impressive, from monochrome to B&W. Well done.
Guest 02-Jun-2006 14:23
I see something very different for your particular set of pictures but I can't quite put my finger on it.
Guest 23-May-2006 15:36
Great stuff you have here... Breathtaking! :)

Thanks for your support and your comments.
Guest 02-Mar-2006 20:04
Well, well Niel,
I'm sorry it's taken me this long to view you're work. Notthing more to say than amazing! You're a very talented man. I'd love to see some shot's of NZ.
Keep up the good work, Billie-Jo
Sergio Rojkes25-Feb-2006 04:11
Neil, when i grow up i want to take pictures like you.
Im glad we share DD
Guest 06-Feb-2006 20:49
Great pics - you're really squeezing the best out of the 7D! I notice you've been getting out near me recently (Peak District). One of these mornings we may well cross paths (Although you'll have the better pics!). Your work is very inspiring and was one of the reasons I bought a 7D. I didn't regret the decision and I keep coming back to see your latest stuff - top notch!
Wendy04-Feb-2006 11:57
I thoroughly enjoyed browsing through your galleries and found them to be a great source of inspiration. Your compostions and the way you use light to work for them is indeed outstanding. Regards, Wendy
Nick Vivian07-Jan-2006 19:47
Some really awesome shots Neil,
I have added you to my favourite artists


Dawid Wnuk Photography10-Dec-2005 11:54
Hello. I'm a young photogrpher from Poland eager to learn photography. And when I see Your photos I see I still have a long way before me. Your work is superb, I deeply admire the talent and skill You have and only wish I could ever be as good...

As I'm starting here on PBase I'd be really a great honor for me if You could just browse through my galleries and maybe leave a comment or two if You like anything.

Great thanks for sharing such a wonderful art. Regards.

Hi Ramkumar, thanks for taking the time to view my gallery.
I am using the Tamron Zoom Wide Angle-Telephoto AF 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 XR Di LD Aspherical IF Macro Autofocus Lens for Minolta Maxxum (D).
Regarding filters, I use Cokin filters and I'm not really sure about alternatives but Cokin are pretty cheap though, I would get a polarizer and a medium ND grad to start with.
Ramkumar V 06-Dec-2005 08:10
Hi Neil,

I have just order a KM 5D and was searching the KM SLR forum in for extra lens and filter info. Was blown away by your landscape shots. I am really impressed by the "just 2 lenses" approach you have.

It would be helpful if you can take time to answer my 3 questions:

1. Are you using:

"Tamron Zoom Wide Angle-Telephoto AF 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Ultra Zoom XR LD Aspherical IF Macro Autofocus Lens for Minolta Mfr# AF06M700"


"Tamron Zoom Wide Angle-Telephoto AF 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 XR Di LD Aspherical IF Macro Autofocus Lens for Minolta Maxxum (D) Mfr# AF061M700"


"Tamron 28-300MM XR AF F/3.5-6.3 LD ASP (IF)/Minolta Maxxum" 28-300MM XR AF F/3.5-6.3 LD ASP (IF)/MINOLTA MAXXUM

2. I cannot spend big $$$ for cokin polarizer - can you suggest some cheaper alternative?

3. What make model of ND/Haze filter would you recommend (again for a guy with not so fat wallet :->)?

Michal Zaleski05-Dec-2005 22:21
I am coming back to your galleries over and over again. Each and every picture you present us here is a unique and complete universe, calling for exploration. I can remember many of your works from KMTF times, nevertheless they always seem so resh and new. Great works and talent, you have a faithful audience in me.

Streetworks Photography04-Dec-2005 22:37

Just want ed to say your work continues to inspire me -- you're the finest 7D photographer on Pbase in my book -- scary to think what you could do with some nice G primes like the Minolta 35mm 1.4 or the 200mm 2.8. You have such a great eye for compelling compositions, keep posting!
Fred Parsons15-Nov-2005 02:06
Neil - I may have said this before but you make me interested in doing panos - so many people that do them know nothing about how to use the format in conjunction with good composition. You certain do know how to do it. You rank with the very best on the web. Kudos again - Fred
Geoffrey Baker 28-Oct-2005 21:12
Hi Neil, I also saw your photo in the magazine, congratulations on such a great portfolio, you've helped me make my mind up about something.
I've had my 7D for 8 months now and have a Sigma 17-50 EX f2.8 and the Sigma 70-300 Super Macro 2, I've managed a few decent shots when the light is good but most of my shots arent sharp, I was blaming the camera but you've showed me that it's me and not the camera, I now realise I need to use a tripod more to get best results, I was considering selling the lot and getting myself a canon 20d but I reckon I'll keep it now after seeing your results and make more of an effort to do it justice.
Thanks mate, you've just saved me a lot of money lol, keep up the great work.
Neil Paskin15-Oct-2005 11:25
Hi Joanne, you will be amazed at the quality of the 7D compared to the 7i, if you have that chance you should jump at it. The only lenses I have are the km 17-35mmD and a Tamron 28-300mm which while probably not the best quality lenses in the world, they work great for me.
Joanne 14-Oct-2005 22:10
I saw your image in 'Digital Photo magazine', and just had to view your website , what an inspiration, I have always avoided photographing landscapes (always thought they looked boring and flat) but you have completely changed my opinion and can't wait to get out there and try my hand and some similar images. I am seriously considering upgrading my Minolta Dimage 7i and will now look at the KM 7D so any feedback on lenses would be helpful -thanks
Derek Slater12-Sep-2005 18:49
I only discovered your galleries last night, great stuff! I now have to go back to several of my locations to re-shoot :-) Insirational stuff Neil.
Cheers Derek
Marcelo Somerstein02-Sep-2005 02:04
Your photography has inspired a couple of friends of mine and now me to get the 7D. KM should give you and a couple of other photographers on pBase a cut of the earnings. Amazing work!
Would you mind sharing what lenses you use on your 7D or which ones you'd recommend? I'm buying my 7D and a few lenses and your advice would be hugely appreciated!
Thanks a bunch!!!
Dyan 22-Aug-2005 19:25
Brilliant !!
Ania 13-Aug-2005 15:12

Richard Calmes02-Aug-2005 20:01
You are truly an artist!
Guest 21-Jul-2005 19:27
Neil - I really like your galleries and style of composition. I have been struggling with composition in landscapes and your Lakes gallery has been an inspiration. It's also an area I have walked and climbed many times and your images bring back some good memories. I will check back regularly for more lessons!
Guest 11-Jul-2005 10:09
i need a new inspiration artist/photographer....found one. :)
wonderful galleries and truly enjoyed my time here now and the future.
Guest 06-Jul-2005 08:38
your landscape photos with 17-35mm are amazing. wonderful work.
Kathryn Hall 04-Jul-2005 08:43
Bloody hell Neil I never knew you had it in you, will you be making yourself available for weddings!? Fantastic, well done.
anthony195730-Jun-2005 21:23
I saw your "Fiance" post in Forum and knew I had to look at some more of your work. And I'm very glad I did! Beautiful work Neil. You have so many stunning images captured with skill and artistic vision.
John 28-May-2005 12:26
First Light is great, where is this place? I would like to use it on my desktop,it is so beautiful. The color is breathtakeing. I enjoyed all of your photos. Thanks for sharing your gift. John
Fred Parsons22-May-2005 06:02
I need to go to bed (it's 2am)! Will be back tomorrow for more enjoyment of your images.
Guest 20-May-2005 20:25
I am very impressed with your work. You work wonders with the Minolta.
Digital Photo 19-May-2005 13:58
Hi Neil

Great images, would you be interested in having any published in Digital Photo magazine (The UK's best-selling digital imaging mag)? If so, drop me a line at chris.robinson@


Andrew Donnellan 19-May-2005 12:11

Marc Vermeulen18-May-2005 01:28
fantastic galleries,great work.
Clyne15-May-2005 09:45
Neil, you have some great shots here. I very much enjoyed touring your pictures. Some of them took me back 20 years to a brief stint working in Carlisle. Nice to see the lakes don't seem to have changed much.
Didier Vanderperre15-May-2005 02:15
I am surprised to be the first to post on your guestbook, I was to expecting to find a long list of compliments. I started with "your favrites" gallery which is superb in itself. Then I looked at the rest of your work which is just as good.
Great job
