    I try to only choose one picture from a set. I am having a real difficult time with this one. Which one should I keep and opinions of course.

    Does the softness work here, or should I give it more pop?

    The second one works great, but maybe a bit more color added to the others would improve them a lot.

    So yes, more pop.

    I'd keep the middle one, the first and last don't do a lot for me

    Yup, the middle one, more 'oomph'. I like the slow shutter speed effect on the water.

    Agreed. The middle shot is best, but still i feel it isnt as sharp as it should be. Great pic though.

    the second seems to jump off the page more so than the others - they tend to be a bit flat. the compositions in all are fabulous and i think they're all keepers! maybe work with the levels/curves a bit and see what happens. very nice shots Cruzin!

    Thank you every one for your replies. I am very sorry it so long to post. I wanted to improve the first and third image for comparison and I needed some free time to do it. I had a hard time getting the levels proper as I tended to over or under do it. What do you think?

    Really appreaciate the advise JonMikal :D
