    I took these over the Thanksgiving break with my Canon S3. It was my first try at landscape and nature stuff, and these are 4 of the top ones from the day in my opinion. Please C&C harshly! Thanks!

    technically speaking you lost the sky in the first one ... it is overexposed a lot. maybe you could have gone closer in and got rid of the sky in the frame.

    number two seems better composition wise, and the sky is nice.

    3 is a bit boring, but ok :)

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I desaturated 1 and 2. I can't figure out if I like the originals or the desaturated ones better. Here's the originals unedited.

    The saturated ones are better, IMO.

    I agree. I think #2 might actually look pretty good in black and white. It might make the logs sticking out of the water pop a little more. But I'm a sucker for wood textures and black and white.

    I prefer the color ones. Your original on #1 has just a bit too much blue tone. An auto color on photoshop elements gives it a warmer look or adjusting the color for less blue and/or more red works too (and I am sure a better editing program can do even better).

    Since you have "ok to edit" I played with it just a tad. I'd probably work with it more than I have, but just to give you an idea...

    I definitely like the original of #2 better than the desaturated one too. Nice series.

    Thanks a ton! I've got Photostudio (which came with the S3), but I've never played around with changing color tones. I definately like your edit.
