    #1 is soooo close. I think just a little smaller aperture (higher f#) would have sealed the deal. Still a really nice shot though! I just would have liked the grass to have been in focus, too.

    #2 isn't blown out as far as I can tell. All it needs is a little contrast. It's just a bit hazy. Photoshop or the like can fix that.

    Great shots!

    I love them both. I think #2 needs some punching up, LCARS is right. I edited a bit. I also cropped some of the top and right off. Basically, increased contrast in some areas and did some burning in of the shadows. It's not perfect and you could probably do much better with the full size RAW.

    Yeah I agree.. after looking at it the grass being out of focus is rather distracting. I am still learning what everything does, and what to do with it.lol

    Thank you for you input!

    C&C per req:

    1. A nice scene, but the lighting is rather flat and lacking in contrast. Judging by the shadows, this was shot sometime mid-day, which is less than ideal. The use of a CPOL would have helped somewhat with the contrast issue, but ideally a time earlier or later in the day with the sun lower in the sky would have been best.

    2. I'm afraid this one doesn't do a lot for me. I think the composition with almost half of the image being "unused" bothers my eye; I'm trying to find something to look at on the right side and finding nothing.

    Just my $00.02 worth - your mileage may vary.

    Thanks for the C/C, I know the first shots just missing something.. I really wish i would have turned out as colorful as it was in person.
    However, that was a rest stop of the west coast... stopped to take some shots... so didnt have much of any options in coming back for a retake, unfortunately. So i had to deal with Harsh lighting and annoying wind gusts.
