    Does the crop bother you? I like the expanse of the picture, but I'm thinking I goofed by cropping out the edge of the tree on the left. C & C always welcomed!

    i like it, but yea i think it might have been better with the whole tree left in. Do you still have an uncropped version?

    BTW, is that Garden of The Gods? I've been there a few times, my aunt n uncle live not too far from there. Beautiful Place!!!

    I've got a version with the tree uncropped, but I metered the image wrong. I'll post it if you'd like - just let me know - It'd be neat to see what you can do with it. The image with correct metering has the tree crop as you see it above.

    Yeah it's Garden of the Gods - good eye! It's the only place I've taken pictures (I just started with a camera last month) - I love it there and it makes it super fun to learn :) My wife and I just bought a house about 5 mins from there, so you'll definitely be seeing a lot of the garden.

    Sure go ahead and post the uncropped version. My aunt n uncle live in Canon City, which isn't very far from there. I bet if I looked hard enough I could probably find some pics from a few years ago, when i was there visiting my relatives and went to the Garden.

    haha yeah - for some reason I decided to take my first rolls of film on b&w. I feel like color is cheating - but I like the color photos I took of GoGs better than these b&ws. oh well :wink:

    I like the new crop better.

    The B&W is cool too. I'm finding that certain places (ie; Golden Canyon in Death Valley), are just too colorful for me too effectively manage the post-processing.
