    Here are three shots I took on a recent trip to Alaska. C&C would be very welcome.

    #1 Just Outside Seward

    The only criticism I have is that you didn't post enough pics. I love 'em all.

    First shot is amazing and takes the cake for me! However a slight crop and rotate to straighten it up would make it even awesomer.

    Thanks guys. Nod, I've got some more in my Flickr stream, I didn't want to photo dump in my first C&C post!

    Einstein, how much would you crop? I left the pine tree in intentionally to frame the shot, would it be better without it?

    these are great, #1 is my favorite also might be a touch overexposed but a great capture as they all are

    3-5 is the perfect amount of pics...more than that and I get lost and fail to comment.

    1 is a stunning shot...definitely a standout above the other two for me.

    Thanks for looking guys. I'm a bit surprised everyone seems to like #1 the best. I like #1, but thought #3 was the standout. Guess that's why it's good to get other opinions!

    no i agree the pine tree looks good left in there, i dont think it needs to be cropped to improve the composition but just to straighten it up. It looks off level to me, the lake edge seems slightly slanted and the pine tree leaning to the right slightly. I would rotate it slightly to the left and keep the pine tree!

    Thanks Einstein. I went back in and took a closer look at it and you are correct, it is just slightly off level. I'll straighten that up.
