    i recently drove through northwestern ontario. it was actually monday of this week. i didn't have nearly enough time to take all the photos i wanted to (didn't go for the purpose of photos..) but i did get these. basically, not as far north as you can get, but where the arctic begins.

    anyway, the lake is called 'shabandowan', just outside of quetico (sp?) provincial park. i feel like i could talk forever about it (i grew up there).

    i wouldn't mind some feedback, if you want to get critical. i think they're a bit dark, i may have over-captured the dull day. they're not very big either. thanks for looking.

    thanks for your commentary skiboarder72, please ignore the following.

    sidenote: i really get the impression that there is no point posting on TPF. my threads die after the first post. it's really discouraging, and i'm getting rather fed up with the lack of feedback everyone doesn't provide

    my images must be flawless. i am a ****ing genious. it's a wonder why i'm not making 100k a year.

    I think they may be salvageable. I think a bump in levels and contrast would do these wonders...and maybe some of them in b and w.

    I like the sign.






























    no, really, I'm quite pitiful with PS, but I have managed to salvage shots that are far worse than these. Ewww, that didn't sound right.

    Take 2: I believe spending some time with Photoshop, you will get much better results. As ClarkKent mention, levels, curves and contrast.

    well, it was a really effin dull day, i kind of liked the atmosphere myself, but here's the rehash. sorry about the compression, they lose all kinds of contrast when uploaded..

    The re-edits are much better.

    You know, you said you can talk about it forever, and obviously the place means a lot to you. Use the camera to capture and relate how you feel.

    The location has a lot of potential. Love the fog.

    I liked that second one. I think though, that these pictures would be way more awesome if there were more to look at. I like the second because it has the foggy/misty feel to it, and there is enough stuff in there to look at...But I'm no professional though, just my thoughts
