    Your pictures have improved since your first post here. The second one is the strongest i think.

    Pretty good shots, none of which I hate.
    1. You have really underexposed the ground on this shot, but it would probably require you combine two or more shots to get both the sky and ground properly exposed.
    2. Pretty cool. I like the lines from the branches, but i'm not sure I like the left tilt of it or the dominant dark branch in the foreground. The blue is a very nice color though.
    3. It's ok, can't say I'm a huge fan of duck shots, but it looks properly exposed.
    4. I think more contrast in the clouds would've made this photo stronger. And if the subject (stick?) was a different tone than the ground.
    5. Probably a few unecessary elements in this photo, with the logs in the foreground and the sticks protruding from the water in back. I don't think the rock balances well in this photo either. A good crop could probably do a lot for this one.

    All in all, they're pretty decent photos. I think #2 is your strongest and if you can get 1's exposure balanced, it could be a great photo too.

    thank you for your very helpful post! i hadnt thought of an hdr for the first one. i might try to rig one up in post processing, i wish i had had my tripod with me when i was out there so i could have done a true hdr. and in 4, the original had even less contrast than that. i messed around with the curves on that photo but ill see if i can get it a little more contrasty.and on the second duck photo, you are exactly right, all the crap in the photo is distracting. i only kept like that because i needed a 4x6 for printing. but now that i have it printed ill crop it.



    thanks. it seems people have been liking the sycamore tree

    I really like #2 and #4. But the sky in #4 is too flat and plain.
