Ok, a little work in the GIMP on this one
Awesome skies... such turbulance and then the serenity of the butterfly. Nice photos!
#4 is great. I am noticing that it seems best to have some comparison point in a photo, as the windmill-like object (I forget its name) becomes in #4. There must be a term for this?
Without that, the first three pictures seem to be missing something. Clouds can be amazing, but look even more amazing when set against something else.
In one of those beginning photography books, I read about the importance of using the foreground, middleground, background to its fullest extent.
This gets me to thinking that I like photos that are like haiku poetry. Often, a haiku includes two concrete images that usually conflict with one another. Of course, there's a nature theme (often in conflict with humanity or itself), etc.
I've decided: I like haiku photography. :???:
Beautiful detail in the clouds! The butterfly shot is great.... love the colors!
The one with the windmill is my favorite. Increase contrast a little and it is a winner.
The one with the windmill is phenomenal, is the silouette intentional?
Thanks for all the nice comments!
Spike5003: yeah, the silouette was intentional. The shot was heavily backlit so only a small about of detail seen in the windmall, so I just made it go all black.
