    Well I went out today and this was the only shot that I really liked. What do you think?

    Do you have a more detailed shot? It's hard to judge such a low-res photo. On another note, the tree in the foreground is rather distracting.

    I like the uncropped version better actually. The sky in the crop is so short, it feels claustrophobic. But then again...the sky is blown out and not really adding any interest. My eye keeps scanning around trying to find the subject (yeh, yeh...I know it's the river) of the image...


    kudos on braving the snow and freezing water!

    I think you should keep the sky for balance and try to shop out some of the shrubs in the front. It also reems rather grey to me.

    I'm not sure if you're aware, but it's common practice to do that in scenery shots.

    The tree doesnt bother me too much, and I like the sky blown out. The tone of the b&w could be played with a little.

    hmmm, very pretty but I think it would make a better color picture, it just doesn't have enough tone difference to make a good b and w.

    :thumbdown: It looks a little underexposed, and the sky is just blown out and white...

    It's common practice to have distracting things in landscape photos? Jesus I wish someone had told me that earlier...back to the drawing board.
