    1.
    I like the slow exposure. Same thing people like to do to rivers and waterfalls but you did it to sand...great job...

    2.
    I like the over-saturated color of the flowers....it conjures images of an old lady gardening...don't know why, but I like it...

    3.
    Again with the sand...but this time...it seems a little bland...perhaps add just some post-processed brightness to it....just my opinion

    Nice work all together....keep up the good work...I look forward to seeing what more you have up your sleeve...

    Just personal preference, but...

    #1 - The photo looks very soft to me, and that could have been the intent. My personal preference on a shot like this is to be sharp as a tack. I like the composition, however.

    #2 - I'm not sure how I feel about this one. I'm not a huge fan over over-saturation, but it does have a very surreal look which I'm sure will appeal to some people. It also looks to be a composite also, because I can see some of the flowers repeated several times throughout the frame. This isn't a bad thing, but I'm just curious what the intent of that was. If you were simply using one of the flowers to 'fill-in' empty space, I might have changed the angle, flipped, changed color, or done something to attempt to make it look different. Again, I'm not sure what the intent was, so I could be completely off base.

    #3 - Still seems soft, but I like the composition better on this one than the first. I also like the sepia tone.

    #1 - I like the idea behind this image but the horizon looks off and the B&W conversion could use more contrast...seems kinda flat.

    #2 - Clone stamp?

    #3 - I think this one works better than the first image. Not sure if I like the sepia tone treatment though.

    I can not tell a lie - I don't like #2 at all, ;) but I do like 1 & 3, I really like the brushed look of the sand -almost like its blowing. As Samanax mentioned though with #1, the horizon is slanted.

    #2 - Clone stamp?


    Absolutely.... Took one and cloned it twice.. Did that to enhance the composition - took one that was nothing, and played with it ... added 2 more flowers in a strategic location, and processed it with the Orton effect.. Kinna liked it, so hung onto it - until I wrote this thread........ Remember, it was on it's way out .. ;)

    Cloning ................ not a bad thing.. :mrgreen:

    Glad you liked the sand shots ...... had fun there, and plan on going back (Bruneau Sand Dunes) for more 'very early AM' pictures...

    thanks,
